Likewise the spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words. And he who searches the hearts of men knows the mind of the spirit, because the spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

Honour your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

Honour your father and your mother, that your days may be long.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
