No "Success" in Prayer

Father Donald Haggerty
"The recommendation not to think many thoughts in prayer, not to speak many words, would have more worth if it were not at times impossible. 
"On the other hand, to accept as the will of God the prayer given on a particular day, whether it be dry, distracted, or serene and insightful, shows a healthy realization that prayer is not a pursuit of efficiency and success.”
Contemplative Provocations, page 91
