Imagine, whatever you ask HY, He gives you right away, but He won't look at you. He'll give you everything but won't look at you. Not very appealing. That's why in Shmone Esray before we ask for healing and livelihood, we ask HY, "Look at us!"
According the Kabbala, there is a great unification that takes place when someone sees something, because that object is inscribed in the eye of the beholder, bringing them together. So by the very act of HY looking at us, we achieve an amazing unity with Him, as we are inscribed in His eyes.
The blessing continues, "and fight our battles," – imagine that, HY Himself fighting for us, against the evil inclination, and all our struggles.
