Sermon Series: God’s Talking – Real People, Real Prayers
Sermon Title: “Wear Him Out”
Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not become discouraged, 2 saying, “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not respect any person. 3 Now there was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me justice against my opponent.’ 4 For a while he was unwilling; but later he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect any person, 5 yet because this widow is bothering me, I will give her justice; otherwise by continually coming she will wear me out.’” 6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unrighteous judge *said; 7 now, will God not bring about justice for His elect who cry out to Him day and night, and will He delay long for them? 8 I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18: 1-8, NASB)
Why should we be relentless in prayer?
1) Maybe it’s not His will
2) Maybe it’s not His timing
3) Maybe it’s not His best
If you’re persistent because of your lack of faith… it bothers God. If you’re persistent because of your faith… it honors God.
Real Prayer isn’t for changing God’s mind, it’s for realigning our will
It’s possible to spend your entire life saying prayers, but never really praying.
Final Thought – What are you doing, after you say Amen?
A) Address your Predicament
B) Appreciate your Provision
