Luke 18:1: And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Meditation: A good friend would often quote this verse when we would be talking about the troubles of life. He would simply say, “The Bible says, men ought always to pray, and not to faint”. His name was Chuck and he went home to be with the Lord about a year ago. I can say this, Chuck practiced what he preached. Chuck endured many trials in his life, but because of prayer he never gave up. Sometimes life can be hard, but if we continue in prayer God will sustain us just like he did Chuck.
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for the example of men that taught me the importance of prayer. Forgive me for not coming to you with every need and every care. Thank you for the privilege of prayer. Amen.
