20 Nov do you annoy God?
Do you annoy God when you pray? I don’t mean that in the sense that God is frustrated with our prayers. But I am asking how “importunate” you pray. Here’s the dictionary entry for importunate:
Would you characterize your prayers like that?
Jesus told his disciples a parable about this…that they should always to pray and not lose heart.
“In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected man. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’” And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge says. And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” -Luke 18:1-8
Today (and tomorrow…and the day after that…etc…) would you pray importunate prayers for the Basque people to respond to Jesus and to have faith?
