Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray for just causes and not give up. He said: "In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, 'Grant me justice against my adversary.'
"For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, 'Even though I do not fear God or care about men, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she will not eventually wear me out with her coming!'"
And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?" - Jesus Christ — Luke 18:1-8
This prayer gives us insight about our prayer life. It says here that God will answer the prayers of those who come to him day and night until their prayers are answered. This also harks back to a previous parable we covered titled, "The Friend At Night" discussed in Luke 11:5-8 which reads:
"Which of you, if you go to a friend at midnight, and tell him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, for a friend of mine has come to me from a journey, and I have nothing to set before him,' and he from within will answer and say, 'Don't bother me. The door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed. I can't get up and give it to you'? I tell you, although he will not rise and give it to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence, he will get up and give him as many as he needs."
Just as in this parable, when we have a need, we must be persistent so that need may be met, whether in addressing another person or God for our needs. This gives us hope that the Lord will provide our needs, especially when we call out and the need is great. What are you in need for today? Take a moment and ask for it so the Lord can show his grace and faithfulness to you.
