One day Jesus told his disciples
a story to show that they should always pray
and never give up.
“There was a judge in a certain city,”
“who neither feared God nor cared about people.
A widow of that city came to him repeatedly,
‘Give me justice in this dispute with my enemy.’
The judge ignored her for a while,
but finally he said to himself,
‘I don’t fear God or care about people,
but this woman is driving me crazy.
I’m going to see that she gets justice,
because she is wearing me out with her constant requests!’”
Then the Lord said,
“Learn a lesson from this unjust judge.
…don’t you think God will surely give justice to his chosen people
who cry out to him day and night?
…But when the Son of Man returns,
how many will he find on the earth who have faith?”
