James says our prayers will have great power (James 5:16).

And Paul calls us to be constant in prayer (Romans 12:2).

    “The Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one” (2Th 3:3). I want this promise to be mine. Yet it cannot be if I’m outside of Christ; will The Lord help me humble myself and establish and guard me against my own flesh/the evil one SO THAT I trust Christ and am repentant?
