Persevere in Prayer
Jesus once told a story about a widow who repeatedly asked a judge for justice against an adversary:
“For some time [the judge] refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care about men, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually wear me out with her coming!” And the Lord [Jesus] 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?” (Luke 18:4-7)
Scripture says that Jesus told the disciples this parable to show “that men ought always to pray, and not to faint” (Luke 18:1, KJV). Let us never faint from the privilege of bowing before God in prayer!
Prayer Focus: Praise God for His patient teaching on prayer; Repent of any “fainting” you’ve done when you’ve failed to persevere; Ask for His help to be faithful in prayer in the midst of life’s stresses; Yield to Him by joyfully persevering even when you’re tempted to give up.
Heavenly Father, fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that my mouth speaks words of encouragements. Do not let me speak words that will tear a person down. O Lord, let me choose Your wisdom over foolishness, for a quick-tempered man does foolish things. May every word I speak be pleasing to You.
Kings take pleasure in honest lips; they value a man who speaks the truth.
