I Corinthians 12:13 YLT

So, we “do not,” need to pray for The Holy Spirit, to live within us, at conversion, He entered our lives, and comforts us with the very presence and power of God.
Is it important to have God The Holy Spirit, living within?
Romans 8:9 KJV
But ye are not in the flesh, but in The Spirit, if so be that The Spirit Of God dwell in you.
Now if any man have not The Spirit Of Christ, he is none of His.
