Key: Prayer simply means conversing with God. So, when we pray we should not just be talking to God but listening. 

We pray for several reasons; for material things, for breakthroughs, for miracles et.c But, most importantly, the reason we must pray always, especially in the spirit, is so that we can be spiritually sensitive; quickened in the spirit in other to understand the schemes of the devil and what the will of God is per timeTherefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is Ephesians 5:17

The deep secrets of this world are revealed to us by the spirit not our natural instincts; these secrets are revealed when we commune with God. 

Keep praying so that your spiritual antenna will remain active and so you won’t easily fall into temptation. And, if you have been falling into temptation, examine yourself, how often do you prefer? Have you been listening to what God has been telling you whenever you pray?
