Faith and Persistence
Luke 11:1-13
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  May 31, 2009

When the disciples ask Jesus to teach them to pray, Jesus tells the parable of the persistent friend to set up a contrast. If a human friend will give what is needed, how much more your heavenly Father? The underlying challenge in this parable is not so much what or how to pray, but why we do not pray.
