And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:1-8)
Today’s Morsel: I heard this guy once say that he had so many problems that every time he thinks that he sees a light at the end of the tunnel, it’s another train load of problems coming straight at him. Do you ever feel like that? Jesus said that we should always pray and not faint. You see the value of prayer is that no matter how bad it may seem or look, you are still trusting God to come through for you. Prayer doesn’t change the situation. Prayer changes you during the situation. Prayer keeps you focused and helps you stay faithful. Prayer builds faith in the storm and sees you through to another day. We must always PUSH! Pray Until Something Happens!
Sing: Somebody’s praying for you! Somebody’s praying for you! When you feel all alone, and your heart would break in two, remember somebody’s praying for you.
Thought For Today: Hang in there, Jesus has already prayed that your faith would not fail.
