Those that call upon the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) in humble, fervent prayer, will receive the strength and grace* (G5485 ) that they need to battle with temptation and to endure trials. In coming to God, the petitioner must present Christ as his authority, Christ’s merit (worthiness) as his plea; and when these conditions are fulfilled, God has pledged His Word that heaven is open unto the cries of the penitent and humble soul.
The enemy will come to you, and say, “It is of no use for you to pray. Did you not do that evil thing? Have you not transgressed against God? Have you not violated your conscience?” Answer him, “Yes; but Christ has bidden me pray. He has said, ‘If we confess our sins, He is faithful and He is Just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9
