"Prayer arises, if at all, from incompetence. Otherwise there is no need for it."
--St. Therese of Lisieux
What possible place could the concept of a "prayer warrior" have in the teaching of Christ to go to your room and pray in secret, and your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you?
He rewards us by allowing us to see our terrible flaws, weakness, hardness of heart in a new light. He rewards us by helping us to see that really what we want more than anything is to love, is to be kind and compassionate and charitable, and to see that on our own we're incapable of any of that.
"The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays."
