Title: “Persistence in Prayer”

Scripture Reading: Luke 18:1-8 (NIV)

“Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.”

In a world that often demands instant results, Jesus teaches us the value of persistence in prayer. Today, we explore Luke 18:1-8, delving into the parable that encourages us to persevere in our communication with God, trusting in His perfect timing.

Jesus shares a parable about a persistent widow seeking justice from an unjust judge. Despite facing repeated rejections, she persists in her plea, eventually gaining justice through her tenacity.

The parable teaches us the importance of persistence in prayer. Jesus emphasizes that if an unjust judge can respond to persistent requests, how much more will our loving and just God answer the persistent prayers of His children.

Persistence in prayer is not about wearing God down; rather, it deepens our trust and dependence on Him. It aligns our hearts with His will and helps us recognize the significance of His timing.

Heavenly Father, teach us the value of persistence in prayer. May we trust in Your perfect timing and continue to seek Your guidance and intervention with unwavering faith. Help us to recognize that Your ways are higher than our ways. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
