Luke 18:1-8 The Parable of the Widow and the Unjust Judge
A few years ago I had a situation happen to me that was rather funny. I had been praying for a family member who needed to change. I actually had prayed about this situation for over nine years. I finally got a bit frustrated and started to complain to God about it – I reminded him about the widow and the unjust judge. I pointed out to him that I had been praying for nine years and this situation hadn’t changed. One week later, through an unusual set of circumstances this person revealed to me that they had made the change I was praying for – a year earlier – but for their own private reasons never told anyone.
I know that many of us are frustrated about the situation in our country over abortion. We pray fervently, we wonder why! But we need to pray and keep praying. There is a new project called Luke 18:1 (yes, the parable mentioned above.) Click here to see their website.
What they want to do is begin a prayer campaign on March 25, 2010 (the feast of the Annunciation, when Our Lord was conceived in Mary’s womb). They want people to sign up to pray for an end to abortion. The idea is that individuals would sign up for a 20 minute period during the year and that hopefully they would get enough people so that someone was praying at all times during the year to end abortion. I urge you to check out the website.
