2 Thessalonians 3:1–5 (ESV)

Pray for Us

Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you, and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command. May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.

 

If I have a good day or a bad day, I like to have someone to talk to about it.  I turn to my wife, but I also talk to God.  Prayer is communicating with God.  I do a lot of praying while driving my car.  I don’t close my eyes and bow my head while driving and praying, but just casual talk.  I pray before church, sermons, Bible studies… and let God lead the way.  The Lutheran Study Bible states: “Paul requests prayer for his missionary work and obedience to what he has commanded them. We are called to listen to those whom God has given to teach and preach the pure Word (Heb 13:17; cf Ac 5:27–32). The Lord’s faithfulness toward us is steadfast; He is an immovable rock. Through the Church (His Body) and her pastors, He will guard us against the attacks of the evil one, the devil, the Antichrist.”

 

I pray: “Protect us from war, bloodshed, plagues, pestilence, and other grievous diseases. Guard us against all evil and distresses of the body. Let Your divine will, the growth of Your kingdom and the glory of Your name be accomplished in all these things. Amen.” (Luth, TLWA, p 336)[1]

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
