Praise the Lord.                                                                         
Praise the Lord, my soul.
I will praise the Lord all my life;
   I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
...
He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
   The sea, and everything in them-
   He remains faithful forever.
He upholds the cause of the oppressed
   and gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
   the Lord gives sight to the blind,
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
   the Lord loves the righteous.
...
The Lord reigns forever,
   Your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the Lord.

"In the last days, God says,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,
    your old men will dream dreams. "Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
    and they will prophesy.
 I will show wonders in the heavens above
    and signs on the earth below,
    blood and fire and billows of smoke.

The sun will be turned to darkness

    and the moon to blood
    before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
And everyone who calls
    on the name of the Lord will be saved."

"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one,Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me".   John 17:20-23
