Fit for prayer?

"Struggling in the midst of conflict or of temptation, therefore, we ought to resist Satan with trust in the Intercessor and say: 'If I am a sinner,' what then? God is merciful.  If I am unfit for prayer because of my sins, well and good.  I do not want to become more fit.  For, woe is me.  I am more than fit for prayer,  because I am an exceedingly great sinner.

Martin Luther
from Scott Murray's "Memorial Moment"
