Will He find faith on the earth?

“When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”  (Luke 18:8)  The great danger in all true prayer is discouragement.  Unlike the widow in Jesus’ story,  if the answer is slow to come we are conclude that the Lord, for whatever reason, does not intend to give what we have asked.  Forgetting that God uses time with His people, we give up.  We lose focus.  When did the “answer” come for Joseph?  When did the “answer” come for the Lord who prayed with tears over the city of Jerusalem?  Most of God’s answers are still not clear to us.  Only faith, however, can receive this patient certainty from the Father.  Only faith can continue to ask.  When the Lord returns, will He find such faith on the earth?  Will he find it in our church?  In me? What are those prayers that you believe to be in line with God’s will that you still have not received?
