As Christians it's imperative that we know how to pray. But it's even more imperative that we know how to put on the full armour of God and do spiritual warfare. As a prophetic person, spiritual warfare is very important to me, because not only can I see the plans of the enemy in the spirit before they are even formed, but I can pray against them so that they do not prosper. Often time's prophetic people are intercessors, we have to pray for others and ourselves against the plans of the enemy that unfortunately many people who do not see prophetically cannot see. The good news is that God has given all of us the gift of prayer whether you can see in the spiritual realm or not, prayer is for everyone and you should constantly and consistently be praying over your life and against the plans of the enemy even if you cannot see it. Pray for protection and discernment at all times, because when you cannot see, it's easier for the enemy to not only attack you but use his servants to attack you as well. Always stay in prayer, never stop praying.
According to wiki
" Spiritual warfare is the Christian concept of fighting against the work of preternatural evil forces. It is based on the biblical belief in evil spirits, or demons, that are said to intervene in human affairs in various ways."
With that being said, we as christians know that there are a web of evil forces, demons ,witches etc and all those who do evil against the children of God. So we need to protect ourselves, we are not going to just sit back and let demons and demonic people try to kill steal and destroy us! No we pray! With prayer, your prayer life literally blocks the plans of the enemy, even if the plans are formed, they will never prosper. This is one of my favourite guided prayers by Dr. Cindy Trimm, it is guided so you can follow along. Never stop praying saints!
