Luke 18:1-9 How Much Faith Do You Have?

on April 28, 2012

Jesus told a parable to teach the lesson that we “ought ALWAYS to pray and not lose heart.”  This is an expression of great faith.  In verse 7 Jesus painted a more detailed picture of what that looks like–crying out to God day and night.  I’ve heard the term “laboring in prayer” used before, and that is the image that comes to mind.  So often I’m quick to give up or just make unemotional, non-specific requests.  Where there is need and total dependence on God, there ought to be persistent petition at His throne.  At the end of verse 9 Jesus questioned, “Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?”  When Jesus returns will He find people of heartfelt, unrelenting prayer?  How would your life–prayer life–answer that question?
