Matthew 17:21

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 21 This verse, (21), was not in the early manuscripts and was later added by scribes making copies.

     However, this kind only goes out by prayer and fasting."

Mark 9:29

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 29 And he said to them, "This kind cannot be cast out by anything but prayer." [Later manuscripts added the words "and fasting" to this verse as explained by the Net Bible.]

1 Corinthians 7:5

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 Do not deprive each other of your body, except by mutual consent for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer and then resume relations so that Satan cannot tempt you because of your lack of self-control. [If you independently, (without mutual consent), withhold sexual relations with your spouse, you risk major alienation of your spouse. If you hear a command to cease sexual relations, and your spouse does not agree, the command is not from the Lord; instead, it is the devil hoping to cause you anguish, your loss of confidence, and even the dissolution of your marriage.

Like Mat 17:21 and Mark 9:29, in this verse earlier manuscripts read prayer only, but scribes in later manuscripts added the word fasting, making it fasting and prayer instead.]
