What we can Pray for that isn't Forbidden by Prophecy

To the tune of La Bamba:
Let's go out and move a mountain!
Jesus said that with a little faith we can make a mountain go swimming!
Evil, evil, evil mountain, bye bye bye!
Chorus: Bye bye mountain! Evil mountain! Evil mountain, bye bye bye!
2. I no longer see a mountain!
Where the evil mountain swam
I can see nothing left but a few bubbles!
Bubbles, bubbles bubbles, Mountain, bye bye bye (Chorus)
3. I remember evil mountain.
Jesus told us with some prayer and action
evil would jump into mem’ry.
Thank you Jesus, you make evil go away! (Chorus)
4. Children, they no see the mountain.
They no see that it was evil.
They don’t think it could be so bad. We’re just
old, old fashioned folks who don’t like to have fun!
(Chorus:) Hello Mountain, Evil mountain, Evil mountain, Not again!
But when I talk about really huge goals, the hope and indeed expectation of seeing A LOT accomplished before I die, against evil in the world, Christians tell me such a prayer goal is against prophecy: prophecy says the world will get worse and worse in the Last Days. So how can I Biblically pray for A LOT of accomplishment against evil?
So the article is my prayer. It is my vision of what I can pray for that doesn't "violate prophecy".
First of all, we don't know the Last Days timeline. We don't know how much time is left. I have thought The End must be within the next half dozen years for the past 60 years. We should not make a limit we can't establish our excuse for making our struggle against evil small. In fact, to do so makes us part of the evil that strangles the world.
Second, even if Antichrist reveals himself tomorrow, Bible prophecy says he will have enemies that he will fight against. I aim to be one of those enemies, if I live that long. In fact, I aim to be one of those enemies who are so successful that Antichrist will have to send his armies out to stop me.
Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
