Perseverance in Prayer
There are three conditions for prayer: humility, faith, and perseverance. However, there is really only one condition: perseverance. The other two are are its expressions: perseverance coupled with faith and humility.
The one who prays even imperfectly will be saved, provided the prayer is made in the name of Jesus. The one who prays daily will get the grace to pray well. One who prays testifies to the need for God and the confidence that the prayer will be heard. As long as we persevere with holy tenacity in our request, we show our faith, hope, and charity. And even before we get up from our prayer, we will ahve received the blessing of God.
