Spiritual discernment is important when it comes to prayer against witchcraft spirit attacks. The spiritual warfare attacks against you are often referred to as witchcraft attacks. Witchcraft attacks have nothing to do with Wicca, New Age mysticism, or the religion of witchcraft. All these are forbidden according to the Word of God.
"For all that do these things are an abomination (meaning vile, loathsome, and disgusting) unto the Lord" (Deuteronomy 18:12). Witchcraft in this context is the spiritual force that Christians feel when under demonic attack. These kinds of spiritual attacks are identified like great confusion, wanting to give up and quit, and depression.
At other times, some people release witchcraft assignments through the power of words or by controlling actions. For example, the spirit of witchcraft is a master at diverting attention away from itself by turning it toward you. Witchcraft even separates and isolates its victims from friends and family. One that is being spiritually attacked often feels the loss of personal identity and self-esteem. Depression and fatigue can follow as the controller, like Jezebel, gives abnormal attention to those it desires to manipulate.
