I returned home to Omaha from the annual Pastor’s Prayer Gathering in Sioux Falls, SD around 3:00 PM on Wednesday.  I cleaned up and went to Harvey Oaks Baptist Church to get ready for a dinner to raise funds for a mission’s trip to Haiti this summer.

Then I led the mid-week Bible study on Jesus’ parable of the persistent widow in Luke 18:1-8…

The Parable of the Persistent Widow

1 And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. 2 He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected man. 3 And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ 4 For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man, 5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’” 6 And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge says. 7 And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? 8 I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”

Will Jesus find faith, that is, persistent prayer on earth?
