Squeaky wheels

Re: Verse reading – Luke 11:1-13; 18:1-8 (day one) 
“Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart.”  (18:1)
[Sorry for the late post. Yesterday was a full, happy day at FBCSA.]  Jesus believed it.  Squeaky wheels get grease.  People who pray get answers.  Significant effort is required.  Maybe, that is why the Lord knew he needed to encourage us not to give up.  Sometimes when I don’t talk to Holly, don’t tell her what I feel or want, it is because I don’t know, myself.  It is an attempt to avoid the emotionally taxing exercise of listening to my own soul, being honest with myself and with her.  Talk is easy.  Truth is hard.  Same with God. Is it possible to live without prayer?  Yes.  It is possible to do so and experience what He promised?  NO.  “Come let us reason” says the Lord.  Talk!  Be honest!  The squeaky wheel . . .
