We must keep our spirits alive and active so that we can discern properly. One of the greatest tools of the enemy against the believer is apathy. In the book of Revelation, the church is warned against being lukewarm in their spirits. As we intercede, discernment will be a primary key in overcoming spiritual apathy and empty religious motions. 

Our tongues of fire multiply the more we speak life upon others, especially our enemies who lie and say all kinds of hateful things about us. Fresh oil and new wine tongues upon all heads forevermore, then all wrongdoing will cease and we shall have peace after 6,000 years of strife on earth
