Too many Christians dismiss the truth of spiritual warfare. The Bible is clear in teaching that there are influences and forces that work beyond the realm of the physical, emotional, and mental. This means that many of what we encounter may be as results of what occur in the spiritual realm. The enemy is relentless in stifling us so that we do not live the full life that God intends for us. We want to properly be equipped in fighting these battles—thwarting temptations, protecting our faith at all costs. Also, prayer is not just helpful in one’s faith, but it is necessary.
