How Earnest are We in Prayer?

Good morning. When we prayer, how earnest are we? Consider the words of John Webb...

"We must be very earnest and importunate in our prayers in God and persevere in them till we obtain the mercy we pray for. For to be cold and formal in any prayer to God is to invite denial from Him and therefore, in such a case, to hope for an answer of peace is the most daring presumption"

(Quoted in Revival by Richard Owen Roberts, 54).
