Persevere in prayer!

Scripture reading for March 28th:  Luke 18

Key scriptures for over-comers:  Luke 18:1, 6-7  “Then Jesus told His disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.  .  .  .   And the Lord 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?   Will He keep putting them off?  I tell you, He will see that they get justice, and quickly.  However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?””

Jesus wanted to encourage His disciples to persevere in prayer so He told them a story about an unjust judge who neither feared God nor cared about men.  A widow came to him seeking justice and would not give up until finally the judge gave in because she was wearing him out.  The point of the story was that God’s people should more persistently pray and seek out the Judge of all the Earth who always does right!  Would Jesus find that kind of faith on earth when He comes again?  Disciples know that their highest privilege is to seek help from a God who is just and answers prayer and they apply themselves by faith!

Observations for over-comers:  Over-comers will always pray and never give up, knowing that Jesus will hear and answer!   “O Lord, I call to You; come quickly to me.  Hear my voice when I call to You.  May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice.”  (Psalm 141:1-2)
