The persistent widow

“There was a widow in that city, and she KEPT COMING to him”.  (Luke 18:3)  Remember the story?  It was the Lord’s illustration of persistent prayer.  Eventually the unrighteous judge gives her what she was asking, just to get rid of her!  You are the widow in this story!  Like her, you are at the mercy of your adversaries until you remember your true power, to ask and not stop.  Friends, when the Church of Jesus Christ learns this lesson, we will discover our true power for service.  When we “cry day and night”, asking  God to visit us with His power, when we KEEP COMING to Him with the request to fill our hearts and our churches with His presence and power, then we will  become what God intended.  It is NOT stubbornness to pray this way.  It is faith.
