Daily Prayer - 2013-10-20


"Come to me all you who are burdened
and I will give you rest"
Here I am, Lord.
I come to seek your presence.
I long for your healing power.


Dear Lord, instil in my heart
the desire to know and love you more.
May I respond to your will for my life.


How am I really feeling? Lighthearted? Heavy-hearted?
I may be very much at peace, happy to be here.
Equally, I may be frustrated, worried or angry.
I acknowledge how I really am. It is the real me that the Lord loves.

The Word of God

Luke 18:1-8

Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. He said, "In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people. In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, 'Grant me justice against my opponent.' For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, 'Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.'" And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them? I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"

Some thoughts on today's scripture

  • This story reminds us that for many people who have been wronged, great persistence is needed to try and ensure one’s rights.
  • From this story about the widow, Jesus tells us not be to see God in the same light as that of the judge. Although, God may not answer your prayers exactly and as quickly as you would like, he tells us to persevere in our requests.
  • Our prayers then become an exercise in pure faith. But our prayer is a conversation with a very close friend who knows best what we need and frequently answers us in a surprising way.
  • From our continual prayer our special friendship with Jesus develops into the best gift we could ever have - friendship with him.


Dear Jesus, I can open up my heart to you.
I can tell you everything that troubles me.
I know you care about all the concerns in my life.
Teach me to live in the knowledge
that you who care for me today,
will care for me tomorrow and all the days of my life.


Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be,
world without end.
