    No such thing as a small matter in a total war

    In the war against cancer, the doctors sesrch out and eradicate every last speck of the cancer. Because,  if not, that small speck can grow and retake the body.

    Every soldier in a war must be totally focused on victory

    With no extraneous thoughts,  worries or reservations.  He can't fight 100% if he's thinking and worrying about anything back home. 

    The purpose of a car is to get to the destination.  Every one of the thousands of parts (soldiers) have a single minded focus to work with the other parts (army) to get to the destination.  There is nothing but that focus to detract from working only for that single purpose.

    There is machlokis on every page of gemora

    I can't recall exactly where, but there is an opinion in gemora that disputes this.

    Tefilla is like talk therapy

    In traditional talk therapy, the patient speaks and speaks unraveling the layers of his own klipas, cover ups,  terutzim,  until he "hits the spot" where there are no more excuses and rationalizations but an admission of rotzon.

    The therapist often does little but listen and keep the patient on track to get to the spot.

    In davenning, we speak to Hashem. He too, is a great listener, as we peel away the rationalizations and terutzim until we get to the "spot".

    The King splurges His treasures on war

    What goes on down here reflects what goes on up there. 

    We see down here that Kings and Presidents also have unlimited and  uncontrolled spending,  emptying the treasury (and even more by borrowing) to fight  World Wars,  and even a war against a  virus.
