In Luke 18.1-8, Jesus tells a parable about a widow who persists in seeking justice from a judge who refuses to hear her case. The gospel writer clearly states the purpose of the parable-that we need to pray always and not lose heart.
What is prayer for you? Is prayer about changing God’s mind or is it about changing us? When it comes to the topic of prayer, do we often feel like we have more questions than we do answers? One thing is certain, God is for us. Jesus reveals to us a God who is approachable, a God who wants to listen to the cries of our hearts.
Prayer helps us experience God’s love and presence. It’s also one of the ways we live out our faith. Prayer doesn’t have to be flowery words strung together in long sentences, neither does it have to follow a set of rules about what prayer “should” or “should not” be. Prayer is as unique as we are.
This Sunday, we may not answer every question about prayer, but we will, hopefully, leave invigorated with a new sense of what prayer can be for each of us.
