The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Lord’s Prayer & Perseverance in Prayer

Reflection on the Gospel of the Seventeeth Sunday
In Ordinary Time

Luke 11:1-13

What strikes me most about today’s Gospel reading is that Jesus conveys his message using two relationships. One of being a friend and the other of a caring Father. Yes, indeed building any kind of relationship is basically communicating with the person and getting to know the person. A good relationship is based on trust and therefore we certainly do not trust strangers. A good friend comes to our aid when we are desperately in need, while a good Father wants what’s best for his children. God is good all the time and all the time God is good, he is a good friend and a good Father. He thus knows our needs and desires. The difference between a need and a want is explained as – A want is a temporary desire while a need is essential, making the request persistent and desperate. So, if there’s something that we desperately require, we need to trust our good Father and good friend will certainly give it to us at the right time and of the best quality.
