Psalm 141

"Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.
 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.
 Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.
 When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.
 Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.
 But mine eyes are unto thee, O God the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.
 Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.
 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape."

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
