Does not Scripture advise short prayer rather than long Rosaries?

The Catholic Answers

No. Long hypocritical prayers are condemned. Prayer may be prolonged, but it must not be hypocritical, mechanical, or insincere. Christ said, “We ought always to pray, and not to faint.” Lk. XVIIL, 1. Again, “Watch ye therefore, praying at all times.” Lk. XXL, 36. He himself “went out into a mountain to pray, and he passed the whole night in prayer to God.” Lk. VI., 12. “We cease not to pray for you,” wrote St. Paul to the Colossians I., 9. “Night and day we more abundantly pray for you,” he wrote to the Thessalonians I, 3, 10.
