Whenever a person is praying for a particular thing or engaging in spiritual warfare, these attributes must be taken into consideration. Single minded is a must; it is the master key for prayer. In Matthew 6:24 the scripture said “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon”.(KJV) Your mind must be totality on one thing, which is God. Many times when we pray, we tend to focus on the negative that is happening in your life at that particular time, which will bring a hindrance in your pray. As I have said before, sometimes you need to prayer before you pray. This will give you a single mind to conduce your praying.
If God is to answer you prayer He wants all of you and not to share you with another person or object or things. In James 3:11, the scripture said, “Do a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter water or yield salt water and fresh water”. (KJV)
A person cannot prayer with two Gods in control at the same time. The great God Jehovah is a jealous person, He absolutely will not share his prayers with any another god. Carnality and spirituality are not family members. They war against each other.

What the world desire’s is not what the Holy Spirit desires. A fig tree, my brethrens, will never bear olive berries, or you will never get bananas out from a sugar cane plant. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: you cannot be partakers of the Lord’s Table, and of the table of devils. The devil wants to kill steal and destroy, but God wants none of that, He is a builder, He doesn’t tear down.

You are the Temple of God, and the Spirit of God dwells in you. Your body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own. In actuality, God is praying to himself, when you pray to Him, because it is the spirit that prays and not you. This is why in 1 John 4, the writer says,

“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world”.

We have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit, which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Do not mingle and involve God’s spirit in the enemy’s playground. The world is where the enemy goes like a roaring lion seeking for someone to devour.

However, we know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. So the enemy could row and row and row and row all he wants, he cannot touch who is of God, as long as that person stay obedience to God in prayer.
