Prayer is indeed the key. Prayers for righteousness and holiness should be the ones we should give priority to all the time. The reason is that with righteousness, there is no one that will see God. Only a righteous and holy person will climb the mountain of the Lord (Psalm 24). Living a holy life is like living an acceptable life. There are 30 serious prayer points to be righteous and holy.
