In Luke 18, Jesus tells a parable about persistent prayer, He tells a parable about the importance of humility when approaching God, He stresses the importance of coming to God like a child, Jesus is approached by a rich young ruler who thinks he can buy eternal life, Jesus assures the disciples of their reward, He warns of crucifixion, and Jesus heals a blind man. I am convicted this morning by Jesus’ parable about the woman who persistently pursued the judge until she attained the legal protection she was seeking. Jesus commends her persistence and says that God will bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night. Jesus told this parable “to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart (v. 1).” Lord, may I persistently cry out to you night and day, trusting that you will bring just what I need? May I never lose heart? Thank you for Your love for me and for always giving me what will make me more life Jesus.
