Prayer what lies behind that word? What do we know about prayer and our prayer? Evangelist Lukas wrote Jesus said to the disciples parable that they should always pray and never become discouraged.
The Gospel talks about the last things of for which is necessary to prepare. And with prayer. We would be wrong to say, that we should only pray from morning to evening. This does not mean, that in our lives there should not be a regular, devotional, focused, persistent prayer of various kinds. Our prayer is to be a truly intimate conversation with God. Prayer teaches the love of God to the neighbor and to himself. The judge from Gospel is not a gentile but a Jew not practicing faith. Who lives as if he never had to rise before God who would judge him. He was not interested in either justice or public option. He makes unjust judgment not interested in the oppressed. The second figure from the Gospel widow represent misery helplessness, she is isolated and exploited. However, the widow is persistent and adamant. She will not give him peace until his patience passes. The judge although not in the interest of justice, but to be free from the widow, takes up her dispute. The parable is a lesson for us, when the unjust judge has granted the persistent widow. What more good and righteous God will enforce the righteous cause of his faithful towards their enemies. Jesus’disciples in this world will be victims of injustice by the children of this world. Believers will bear theoretic hardships in this world. Believers will bear the hardships in this world. But when they persist faithfully in fulfilling their duties to the end. Christ on his second coming will become their reward., This does not mean that one in prayer to be done with faith, hope, and love. We must not be disgusted. Our Christ’s second coming to the world is unknown and therefore those ,who believe in his love ,they have, to persevere in their prayer and pray continuously. We are instructed not to lose patience in prayer. God did not give us the gift of prayer to answer each of our prayers with miraculously. Although not immediately responding God, does not silence. Prayer is also a manifestation of our faith of our faith. There is most much to talk about God knows our needs before we say them. The parallel of the Jung and widow is a challenge for the faith to learn to trust God. Although many things we receive from God as a matter of course it is necessary to realize at least from time to time. Who is God and who we are? What is our mission on earth, Where is our goal. How do we use the means to achieve the goal of our lives in accordant with his words. Our actions must not contradict with words. Our actions must not contradict his law.It goes without saying that God demands perseverance in good and faithfulness in fulfilling his commands and words. Prayer and every act should not be done by us spirit less. Our life should bear the seal of faith. Our words and deeds by which we manifest externally speak of our love of hope and faith for God. Do we know the meaning of prayer for our lives? Do our children and youth see their fathers praying. We think they will be well-prepared, to live if they don’t pray. Who will give them strength, who will help ,them. I do not think of prayers that students pray for far before exams ,but prayers that keep us, in constant communication with God, and they give us the strength to handle our problems. Thank God, that he gave, is the ability to pray. God our father he wants to hear our prayers.
