Text for the Day -- Luke 18:1-8 ---------- Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. He said, "In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people. In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, 'Grant me justice against my opponent.' For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, 'Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.' " And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them? I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"
Devotional ---------- Persistent prayer. Passionate prayer. "Stay in there!" This is a message we often hear from Jesus. Faith has its work to do in fervent prayer. A part of the Christian obligation is to hold the world in prayer, or at least some hurting or bruised part of it. It may be nations we pray for, or an individual, or even ourselves. Faith is the muscle of prayer. Are you exercising?
Prayer ---------------- Strengthen my desire to be an ardent pray-er, Good Lord. Amen
