Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 18,1-8.
Jesus told his disciples a parable about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary. He said,
“There was a judge in a certain town who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
And a widow in that town used to come to him and say, ‘Render a just decision for me against my adversary.’
For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought, ‘While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
because this widow keeps bothering me I shall deliver a just decision for her lest she finally come and strike me.'”
The Lord said, “Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them?
I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
Prayer is powerful
- Prayer: You are not aware that prayer is very strong in life and how it can work for you. It is an important aspect of life that we usually neglect or avoid. Remember prayers can lead to break boundaries in our life, it can give you security and encouragement and also clarity. Do not get discouraged because prayer is an important tool to achieve what you believe is impossible to accomplish.
- The widow: it is here we see the values of humility and perseverance, two key elements that we must cultivate in our lives. We are not constant in the pursuit on what must be done or it is hard for us to accomplish things that we must. Please remember humility and prayer are the pillars of holiness.
- The judge: Prayer can help soften tough hearts. Do not be afraid of asking, praying and persevering. Fight for what your heart tells you with clarity and do not let anyone dampen the plans God has for you. Do not be afraid, prayer changes everything in life.
God bless you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Always remember, heaven is our goal.
