Bible Passage
Is 40:9 -11

9
Go up onto a high mountain, Zion, herald of glad tidings; Cry out at the top of your voice, Jerusalem, herald of good news! Fear not to cry out and say to the cities of Judah: Here is your God!
10
Here comes with power the Lord GOD, who rules by his strong arm; Here is his reward with him, his recompense before him.
11
Like a shepherd he feeds his flock; in his arms he gathers the lambs, Carrying them in his bosom, and leading the ewes with care.
John
Chapter 11


Matthew 6:

5
"When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on street corners so that others may see them. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward.
6
But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.
7
3 4 In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words.
8
Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.


Like 11:

1
1 Now a man was ill, Lazarus from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha.
2
Mary was the one who had anointed the Lord with perfumed oil and dried his feet with her hair; it was her brother Lazarus who was ill.
3
So the sisters sent word to him, saying, "Master, the one you love is ill."
4
When Jesus heard this he said, "This illness is not to end in death, 2 but is for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it."
5
Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
6
So when he heard that he was ill, he remained for two days in the place where he was.
7
Then after this he said to his disciples, "Let us go back to Judea."
8
The disciples said to him, "Rabbi, the Jews were just trying to stone you, and you want to go back there?"
9
Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours in a day? If one walks during the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
10
But if one walks at night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him." 3
11
He said this, and then told them, "Our friend Lazarus is asleep, but I am going to awaken him."
12
So the disciples said to him, "Master, if he is asleep, he will be saved."
13
But Jesus was talking about his death, while they thought that he meant ordinary sleep.
14
So then Jesus said to them clearly, "Lazarus has died.
15
And I am glad for you that I was not there, that you may believe. Let us go to him."
16
So Thomas, called Didymus, 4 said to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go to die with him."
17
When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days.
18
Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, only about two miles 5 away.
19
And many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them about their brother.
20
When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him; but Mary sat at home.
21
Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.
22
(But) even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you."
23
Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise."
24
Martha said to him, "I know he will rise, in the resurrection on the last day."
