You can google the Man on a roof, story but I will try to make it short here.



A man is on his roof during a rising flood, a man with a row boat comes by and offer to help him, the man replies "No my God will save me"

The water is now at his knees, a man comes by in a motor boat, he too offers to help, again the man refuses, his God will save him.

The water is at his chest, a helicopter comes by, more help is offered he refuses again, cos he believes his God will save him.

Finally a wave sweeps him off and he dies. He goes to heaven and is angry at God, he asks him "Lord why did you not save me" ? God replies " What do you mean? I sent two boats and a helicopter" !!



So only an idiot thinks just prayer alone will help, you pray to God for the guidance and strength to help you, but it takes action on your part as well. I don't know anyone that does as you suggest.

Do both. You can really psych out your opponent by striking a pose and/or just shouting a request for divine strength.
