There are times in life when you are faced with temptations and you lack the strength to overcome. If you lack strength don’t lack zeal. Even if everything around you is crumbling and you have no strength to overcome don’t give up on yourself and on God.
Jesus Christ commands us to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect. Is this standard of perfection beyond our achievement? If this is God’s standard for us what do we now do?
Before Jesus Christ left He promised to be with us till the end of the world. Matthew 28:20 “lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Therefore, whenever Christians gather in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ we secure His presence.

Prayer is communication with God. Prayer attracts the attention of God and makes angels to spring into actions. It brings down the Holy Spirit’s abiding presence. Prayer is one of the ways we can fan our fire of the altar of our bodily temple into flames and make the body a conducive temple for the Holy Spirit to dwell. Prayer drives away demons that attack our relationship with God. If you can “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) and “every where, lifting up holy hands” (1 Timothy 2:8) you will always keep the fire of your altar burning, and fellowshipping “with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.” (1 John 1:3).
