The Most Important Thing about Praying by Frederick Buechner

by Richard Long,

I love this quote from the book “Wishful Thinking” by Frederick Buechner.

“According to Jesus, by far the most important thing about praying is to keep at it.  The images he uses to explain this are all rather comic, as though he thought it was rather comic to have to explain it all. …

Be importunate, says Jesus – not, one assumes, because you have to beat a path to God’s door before he’ll open it, but because until you beat the path maybe there’s no way of getting to your door.”
