Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. (Luke 18:1)
Are you going through one of those times when it seems every attempt to solve one problem is met with another difficulty? Perhaps you go to bed at night believing for great things in the morning only to wake up to find that something else has gone wrong and another problem surfaces.
Now we can understand why Jesus told the parable in Luke18. The lesson to His followers is very clear: always pray and never give up.
Prayer is not a way to force God to do what we want. It’s also the process of recognising His power and plan for our lives. Prayer is the means where we yield our lives and circumstances to God, trusting Him to act in His own time and His way.
Praying for grace for you to trust in God’s wisdom and care today and not give up as we await the outcome of our requests.
