Always Pray and Never Give Up

Luke 18:1 -- “One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up.”

There are time when situations look bleak, or when suffering continues with no end in sight. There is no denying the world is a hard place to live in. But there is hope -- Jesus tells us to “always pray and never give up!”

The story Jesus tells (Luke 18:2-8) is of a widow who relentlessly asks a judge who neither feared God nor cared about the people. However, even he yielded and gave the widow her request for justice. If a wicked man would act justly, then would not a God who loves also grant justice and quickly.

The true question here is not whether God will act, but whether the people have the faith to cry out the Him relentlessly (Luke 18:8). Do you have the faith?

Dear Lord,
I seek to always pray and never give up. I want to have the faith to relentlessly cry out for justice. I can’t do it alone, please help me Lord, help me to be relentless in my faith.
