The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Parable of the Widow and the Unjust Judge

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

Luke 18:1-8

Jesus during his ministry was busy with teaching and preaching the people. Most of his teachings are in the form of parables and useful for our day to day life. In today’s gospel passage Jesus is sharing with us a parable of a unjust judge and encourages us to be persistence in our prayers. Let’s reflects on the word “prayer”.

Prayer means: A conversation or dialogue between God and man. Prayer helps us to build a relationship with God. Prayer make unites us with God. Prayer reveals the strength of our Faith, and our trust and confidence in the Lord. All the prayers raised in the name of Jesus will never be unanswered. There are 4 types of prayers which will never be unanswered

  1. The Prayer of a Just person: God is always pleased with righteous people. If we live our life in a righteous way like Noah, Abraham, then God definitely listen to our prayer.
  2. Selfless Prayer: Always intercede or stand up in the gap for wicked and righteous people and pray for them. Definitely our prayer will not go in vain.
  3. Justice Prayer: All our prayer should be just in the eye of God and always pray for people suffering in the world due to injustice happening to them. If we do so, then God is pleased with us and listens to our prayer.
  4. Repentance Prayer: God always sits near to the broken hearted and listens to them. Each drop of tear rolling from their eyes is precious in the eyes of God. Hence never shed your tears in front of others instead pour it out in the presence of God.

Friends, sometimes many of us say that our prayer is in vain, and are upset with God and stop communicating with God. Some say God remains silent and they struggling alone in their life. Some say God never approves of their prayer, so it is better to leave and change their intention and move ahead in life. Whatever situation you could be in today, friend, Jesus is encouraging you to sustain in prayer. Prayer is a strong weapon and the solution to your problems. Hold your shield (prayer) properly and renew it and continuously. Hold on to it and you will see the reward of it very soon in your life.

“The prayer of the just is always rewarded by the Lord”
