Jesus Encourages Continual Prayer to Counter Giving Up (Luke 18:1-8)

Jesus the danger of giving of, of “losing heart,” and encourages one practice that can serve to counter this danger – ongoing prayer.  Jesus gives His exhortation for ongoing prayer, and then shares a parable to illustrate and contrast. In the parable, Jesus describes a widow who is effective in “praying” or appealing to a judge that neither fears God nor cares what man thinks. But even with this type of man, the widow succeeds. If prayer can work on a human level with someone that has no care for God or people, think how praying to God can work! God, who is holy and just and caring and loving, invites our prayers, and desires to hear and to answer! Unlike the unrighteous judge, we do not have to pester God, as He is ready to listen and to help.
