Where is the line between persisting in prayer and vain repetition?

Scripture: Matthew 6:7
Where is the line between persisting in prayer and vain repetition? Jesus warns us in Matthew 5 not to pray with vain repetitions of many words. God wants us to pray intelligently. Now Elijah knelt down seven times and plead with God to send rain. Parents ought to pray for their children every day. It is not repetitive if it is from your heart.
