Wendell Berry capturing the feeling of desperate, stubborn, faithful prayer in the ever-quotable Jayber Crow:

Prayer is like lying awake at night, afraid, with your head under the cover, hearing only the beating of your own heart. It is like a bird that has blundered down the flue and is caught indoors and flutters at the windowpanes. It is like standing a long time on a cold day, knocking at a shut door.”
