Jesus said something like the thief comes not but to steal, kill and destroy.  You and I might pray all the time, but that doesn’t mean the thief is not coming. If we knew the thief was coming, we would do everything we could to protect ourselves,family and possessions! ‘ol devil is the thief Jesus is talking about.

We will have to spend time with God and come out on the other side of the shadow of the valley of death following the Good shepherd to green pastures and still waters.
