If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don’t have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.                If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don’t have love, I am nothing.                If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don’t have love, it profits me nothing.                Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud,                doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; 13:6 doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;                bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.                Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

Quotations about prayer
   

{5:17} Pray without ceasing.

Paul's First Letter to the Thessalonians 5:17

"Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you.

For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.

Or who is there among you, who, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone?

Or if he asks for a fish, who will give him a serpent?

If we do not want to act habitually according to the Spirit of Christ, neither can we pray habitually in his name. the "spiritual battle" of the Christian's new life is inseparable from the battle of prayer.
