Lord Jesus, I am thankful for Your promises in the Gospel that we will not pray in vain. You said that if even an unjust judge will give in to the pleading widow if she keeps asking Him that justice be done, then should we not expect more from God, who loves us? In another place, You told us to keep asking, seeking and knocking. You give me a reason not to lose heart. I know that Your time is not my time, and Your thoughts are not my thoughts, and therefore I will not be too demanding and impatient. I thank You for Your reassurance that You hear me. Please help me in my present necessity. Amen.
