God has demonstrated over and over that He has chosen to work through the prayers of His people. Yet, many of us struggle to pray on a consistent basis. It can seem easy to become distracted, disappointed, or even bored when it comes to prayer. So, in Luke 18, Jesus tells us a story to remind us of why it’s important to pray and not give up on prayer…even when God seems distant, even when we are not receiving the answers we would like to receive, and even when it seems hard and laborious. There is no area of life where Jesus encourages persistence more strongly than in the area of prayer.
