Discipline of Prayer

Re:Verse passage – Luke 18:1-8 (day two)

Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, vs. 1

Our re:verse passages these last two weeks have included some interesting parables from Jesus. A casual reading may lead one to believe that we can pester God to granting our requests. Jesus uses characters that are not beacons of virtue to illustrate his point about boldness and persistence. I also think there is another lesson to be gleaned from these passages. It is found in verse one of this week’s reading. Not only are we to be bold and persistent, but in so doing we create a discipline of prayer. Jesus is reminding of us of our absolute need to stay tethered to the father. We must have a pattern and routine of dialogue. We must speak, and we must listen. This regularity will change our hearts as we constantly seek audience with the divine.

As you celebrate Independence Day today, take time to thank God, in prayer, for the freedom to worship and share your faith.
