I have searched Wiki, various help locations, and forum for the answer to my question, but have not found it yet. I would like to find all imperative occurrences for all biblical words translated into English as "pray." Can someone point me to instructions on how to do this?

Thanks

Try this Morph Search         @V??M WITHIN pray

Assuming you know the "biblical word" - either a Greek or Hebrew lemma, then a Morph Search is the usual method (click within the drop-down list after typing @).

Fred's suggestion (also a Morph Search) of  @V??M WITHIN pray works within a Reverse Interlinear bible like ESV, NRSV, NASB95 and has the advantage of revealing all Greek imperative words translated "pray". The Hebrew imperative is @V?M WITHIN pray

Thanks for the answers. I had seen the WITHIN parameter, but never would have imagined it would be used in this way. Looked like an option for subsets.
