I read in the bom profets who cried unto the Lord all day and all night, but how did they do it without being repetitive?

Pray to a certain extent by its nature is repetitive. Think about why you pray. God knows all of our wants and desires, he knows whats in our hearts. He knows that we want our food to be blessed, that we want grandma to get better, that we want good things for our children. Why then do we ask for the same things over and over?

 

Vain repetition has been discussed and I think we can all agree that this is something to avoid. So OP why do you pray at all?

I think that is a good question. So while I'm still thinking about it, for me, there are several reasons why I pray. To feel close to heavenly father for one. Also to thank him for all he's done for me since i last prayed.  Also to repent. I think this is a great question though, and ill still be thinking about it.
