The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Parable of the Widow and the Unjust Judge

Reflection on the Gospel of the Saturday
Of The Thirty-Second Week In Ordinary Time

 

Luke 18:1-8

Through today’s parable Jesus teach us persistent prayer. Prayer is a two way communication, between man and God. Through the “Our Father Prayer” Jesus taught us how to seek our heavenly father for our needs and wants also assure us all our needs and wants are granted by  heavenly father. Let’s reflects on “Prayer”

For our daily needs we pray to God  and many times our prayers are answered by God. Some times we feel our prayers are unanswered or delayed and there is no chance or hope to receive it from God. For such a time and person today there is a good news from Jesus. In the parable the widowed woman focused on her wants and was continuously seeking a just judgement from the unjust judge. The unjust judge too finally, out of pressure from that woman, granted her a fair judgement. If the unjust judge of the parable can give a fair judgment to a unknown person who  was seeking him everyday for a fair judgement, then how much more our heavenly father can give to his own sons and daughters when they seek him persistently.

Yes, friends never lose hope or heart when there is delay in answering your prayer. Silence from God is also a way of communication to us.  When the sculptor carves a statue from the rock, there is absolutely silence until he finishes his work and the outcome is definitely awesome and admirable. Similarly, when God is carving you, there is no communication between God and you. It does not mean that God has forgotten you or forgotten your prayer or your prayer is not as per God’s will, instead God is going to do a mighty work through you which in the past or present no one has heard or seen, hence wait patiently till God complete his master piece in you.  

Isaiah 40:31 says, “…those who hope in Lord will renew their strength…” Hold on to your faith, and patiently stop struggling, knowing God has/is answering prayers.”
