" 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord,

plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.' "
Jeremiah 29:11-13
