Previous verse:
 parastos.deviantart.com/art/Ma…

And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

Except that Jesus said not to use repetitive prayers and many words, but to worship in spirit and truth (from the heart), but there he is, with prayer beads, before an icon.

He said not to use VAIN repetitions, as if repetitions by themselves can win us favor with God (Jesus used the same prayer while in Gethsemane three times; contrast with priests of Baal who try to win a miracle from their god by getting louder and louder).
Also, St. Paul said to pray without ceasing and Jesus, again, teaches us to seek first the Kingdom of God; there's only so much you can say in a prayer.

There is. Eventually I have to shut up, if I want God to answer me! Otherwise I'd just repeat myself ad nauseum, and that's not good for either of us!  :D (Big Grin)
