It's a wonderful thing to have heaven's resources to help get through this life. If you're not taking advantage of as many of them as you can, I know you're failing somewhere. That's not harsh, it's just simple truth.
I was at a local church teaching effective prayer last week had a vision of a samurai warrior angel on a path performing a kata with a sword. At the time I had this vision I was praying in tongues and noted in my journal that it sounded very Asian. There was another path below the one he stood on that crossed beneath him. Roadways, highways, paths, doors, windows, etc. exist in the unseen realm so this isn't unusual.
I thought it was the same angel I saw June 11, 2015, but when I was recording the vision I realized it was a different angel. Click the photo below to read the post from this summer.

I'd originally thought the samurai was battling but realized he wasn't moving forward and there was no enemy in front of him. So I looked up the significance of kata. I know what kata is and that that's what he was doing because I took Tae Kwon Do for a couple years when I was young. What I learned recently is the purposes of kata are:
This vision partnered with what I heard as I prayed with a friend the next day. I received instructions that we were to go forward in prayer and business as if we were conducting a military campaign and saw a battlefield being set. That's good stuffs right there. As I've learned and said before God doesn't send us into battle without a guaranteed victory at hand.
I love knowing that what I pray gets heaven's attention. It's quite a faith booster, lemme tell ya. God always confirms His Word with signs and wonders following. You should be experiencing confirmations that your prayers are being assigned to heavenly workers as well.

The warrior I saw was all white, none of the colors you see on the one above, but this is the closest match I could find to what I saw. It's hard to capture the glory of heaven in human ways anyway, but if you have eyes that see you're able to form a more-accurate image.
The Ruach haKodesh said to me (and whosoever will):
I will never send you into a battle without releasing the hosts of heaven to go before you. Fight behind Me. That's what you're actually doing when you go into war. You're not up front. My forces are in front of you. I always win.
I pray that as you go forward in God-directed war to take possession of your inheritances that you'll:

Your prayer language - also called a supernatural language or tongues - is a powerful tool for life and especially spiritual warfare. The logos (written Word) tells us we speak mysteries directly to Dad when speaking in tongues, and we and others cannot understand what's being spoken. That's powerful ... to be able to bypass human and spiritual (demonic) forces in your communication with God Most High.
If tongues hasn't been released for you, ask and press in until you receive the gift. DON'T LEAVE ANY GIFT DAD OFFERS ON THE TABLE. His gifts increase our ability to live abundant life.
Below is a testimony of victory from praying in tongues myself followed by a teaching about why the enemy blocks the gift. It's an outward manifestation of the power of God. The power of God changes lives and that's part of our commission. Don't pass it up if you want all of Dad you can get.
