The Lord is close to all who call to him, who call on him in the sincerity of their hearts.
V. My mouth shall speak the praises of the Lord, let all flesh bless his holy name.
Ps.144:18; V. 21
Let my prayer ascend like incense in your presence, O Lord.
V. May the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice.
Who is like the Lord our God who dwells on high and looks down on that which is humble in heaven and on earth?
V. He raises the need from the earth and lifts up the poor out of the mire.
Ps. 112:5, 6, 7
