I suggest,

{6:71} Say, "Ought we invoke besides God what does not benefit us nor harm us and be turned back on our heels after God has guided us? [We would then be] like the one whom the devils seduced [to wander] upon the earth reeling, [while] he has fellows inviting him to guidance, [calling], 'Come to us.' " Say, "Verily, the guidance of God is the [only] guidance; and we have been commanded to submit to the Lord of the worlds."

{6:72} And that you are to establish prayer and watch out for Him. And it is He to whom you are [going to be] gathered.

{6:73} And it is He who created the heavens and the earth in truth. And the day He says, "Be," and it is - His uttering is the truth. And to Him is the dominion [on] the Day the Horn is blown. [He is] Knower of the Beyond and the present; and He is the Wise, the Dexterous.
