Importunate in prayer

Following on from the quote from Newton's childhood pastor, I was struck by the similarities in this from Martyn Lloyd-Jones in Joy Unspeakable:

Without an element of importunity and persistence, or urgency and almost a holy violence with God, we have little right to expect that God will hear our prayer and answer it.

MLJ, Joy Unspeakable, 382
