How are angels facing resistance to answer prayers?

“But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia.” Daniel 10:13
            According to this angel, he faced some kind of resistance in the spiritual realm by demons and needed saving by Michael, a more powerful angel.
            This statement makes us wonder how angels and demons fight, what weapons they use, what damage can they do to each other, can they suffer pain, are they engaged in some kind of never ending World War II, how are some angels more powerful than others, are some demons stronger than others.
            The answer to these questions is—we don’t know.  All we know is that, yes, angels and demons do fight and they have the ability to detain/restrict each other.   The book of Jude references a dispute between Michael and the devil over Moses’ body which means there is resistance and conflict in the unseen world.  Revelation 12 talks about the great war between Michael and his armies.
            Just because this angelic world is invisible, doesn’t mean they are ghosts, see-through reflections of light that your hand can pass through.  This battle happens in another dimension that we can’t see but is very real and has its own physicality.
