“One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall SEEK: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to meditate in His temple…When You didst say, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, Your Face, O Lord I shall seek.” Psalm 27:4;8.
“When Your people go out to battle against their enemies, wherever You send them, and when they pray to You toward this city which You have chosen and the temple which I have built for Your name, 35 then hear from heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause." 2 Chronicles 6:34-35.
