While we understand the importance of physical protection in this world, we often overlook the importance of spiritual protection. The reality is that we are in a spiritual battle, and the devil attacks us where he knows us to be weak. It is crucial that we put on the full armor of God, as Paul tells us to do in Ephesians. We also need to make goals, such as knowing Jesus instead of just knowing about Him, and pursue those goals. Prayer is an essential part of fighting in this spiritual battle because more often than not, those who are lacking in prayer are getting beat. Lastly, we need to make sure that we are surrounded by our brothers and sisters in Christ so that we can help protect each other from temptation and the attacks of the devil.
