Jesus Told the Unjust Judge Parable


Luke 18:1-8


The Navarre Bible notes are instructive.

“The parable of the unjust judge is

a very eloquent lesson about the

effectiveness of” prayer perseverance.


Our mandate is to pray without ceasing.

Let us overcome laziness and pray.

If we are a praying delegation,

then we will be a great sensation.


In the public square, we can say a prayer.

During a quiet walk, let us not squawk.

At your workstation, pray for our nation.

As we do a task, don’t forget to ask.


“Prayer nourishes faith, but faith, in turn, grows

when it is enlivened by prayer.”  Amen.
