In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus teaches his disciples to pray and says that those who pray should be like someone knocking at their friend’s door in the dead of night, not leaving until they have received what they ask.
Are we too easily discouraged in our prayers? Have had prayers unanswered for lack of asking?
Let us hear our Lord’s teaching and persist! Let us rouse our best, our heavenly friend, and stir him to bless us even in the dead nights our our souls.
And let us also persist in beseeching our Lord for the sake of our neighbors nearby and around the world. May we be like the impudent friend banging at the door of heaven, not leaving until we have our answer.
See you Sunday,
