A Word about Prayer

source of image unknown

This parable tells a story of need. That’s fitting, since the disciples have just asked Jesus, “Teach us to pray.” They sensed their need—not just for inadequacies generally, but even for the inadequacies of their praying—and Jesus met them where they were.

And in the process of telling this story, Jesus identifies two reasons we don’t pray, and points us to the only hope we have.
