Prayer is not about repetition but persistence. Repetition is about mechanics. Anyone can repeat mindlessly.
Persistence comes from the heart. It shows what we really desire.
When push comes to shove, what do I really want? What am I seeking? What do I think matters?
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things (the necessities of life) shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33, NKJV).
