|11| Kingdom Prayer (Luke 18:1-8)

Charlie Boyd - 8/23/2015

We continue in our summer series entitled, "Kingdom Parables: Keep Looking Until You See". Jesus told parables to make people think about how life in God’s kingdom under God’s reign was different than how we normally go about life. Parables have the capacity to challenge and change the way we usually think about God, life, and faith, and the only way to understand a parable is to keep looking until you see and to keep listening until you hear. This message is on the Parable of the Persistent Widow. As followers of Jesus, we should always pray for God's justice to come and never lose heart, even if it seems like all hope is lost. God has promised that future justice will come when Jesus returns to set up God's Kingdom on earth. The simplest way we can do this is to pray the Lord's Prayer every day. Don't just shake your head; bow your head and pray, when you see injustice in the world today.
