Are you feeling frustrated with your prayer life? Does it seem that your prayers don’t matters? I’d like to challenge you with a take on a familiar parable from Luke 18, the parable of the Unjust Judge.
I got the idea for this video, the other day. Yes, it may appear humorous; however, a point is being made. I’m sure you’ll get the point and remember it when you feel discouraged in your prayer life.
To make things a little easier and a good reference point, here’s the parable that I’m referencing.
18 Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, 2 saying, “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not respect man. 3 There was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me legal protection from my opponent.’ 4 For a while he was unwilling; but afterward he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect man, 5 yet because this widow bothers me, I will give her legal protection, otherwise by continually coming she will wear me out.’” 6 And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge *said; 7 now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them? 8 I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”Luke 18:1-8 NASB
