Prophecy is not a prayer but it is a gift of Holy Spirit to hear the supernatural utterance in the native tongue (1Cor. 14: 3). It is a miracle of divine utterance, not conceived by human thought or reasoning (Acts 3: 21; 11: 28; 21: 11; 2Pet. 1: 21; 1Cor. 14: 23- 32). 

It includes speaking to people to edification, and exhortation and comfort (1Cor. 14: 3). 

If God wants you to prophesy against your enemy, you have no choice but to obey the Lord to go to the person and prophesy. This is the duty of a prophet of God. 

In Ezk 11:4, the Spirit lifted the prophet Ezekiel up three times(Ezek. 3:14; 8:3; 11:1); once carried him (Ezek. 37:1); and four times took him up (Ezek. 3:12; 8:3; 11:24; 43:5) to prophesy against the 25 men mentioned in Ezek. 8:16. They were the leaders of the people in wickedness (Ezek. 11:2).

The following Nine Predictions are Fulfilled:
1. I will bring you forth out of the midst of the city (Ezek. 11:7).
2. I will bring a sword upon you (Ezek. 11:8).
3. I will bring you out of the midst of the city and deliver you into the hands of strangers (Ezek. 11:9).
4. They will execute judgments among you.
5. You will fall by the sword (Ezek. 11:10).
6. I will judge you in the border of Israel (Ezek. 11:10, 11).
7. You will know that I am Jehovah (Ezek. 11:10, 12).
8. This city will not be your caldron.
9. You will not be the flesh in the midst of it (Ezek. 11:11).
