This post will draw on the game of Pokemon. If you are unfamiliar with the game I will try to give you enough knowledge for it to make sense.
The most important part is that you are trying to Knock Out your opponent's Pokemon before they Knock out yours. You do so by using attacks that are specific to each Pokemon.
We will be using four Pokemon for this demonstration. Hopefully Prayer and Revelation will be more understood than before.
Each Pokemon has a specific type of Energy that it uses.
Sawk - Praying and Doing
Sawk is capable of doing up to 100 points of damage, but it all depends on a coin flip. If we pray and receive Energy from the Lord, but then we don't make our own decisions and act of our own will, we will probably not reach our full potential.
If I only prayed a little bit, or when I was in trouble with something or someone, I can put down an Energy, which would allow me to deal with something that bothered me in the moment, but I will never win because I can't defeat the enemy that is attacking me. With more sincere Prayer I would have more Spiritual Energy, and thereby be capable of withstanding the advances of Satan.
Psyduck and Golduck
Some personal effort makes it so you can heal yourself but without prayer you still dont get anywhere.
Golduck becomes more powerful as you give him Energy. Having done the required effort on your part by evolving, Energizing your Spirit through prayer will help you come off Conqueror.
