Never give up

Always Pray.

Always Pray.

At today’s Parish Eucharist we hear the words of Jesus saying to his disciples that they should pray always and never give up. Revd Julie said how Jesus told his followers the parable of the widow who was so persistent with her request to a judge who had no compassion or care for anyone or anything, give in to the poor widow because he couldn’t stand her continually going on at him, he just didn’t want the hassle. Revd Julie asked us what would make us persistent? William Wilberforce was campaigning for some twenty years to stop the slave trade and he did. And we heard recently how the couple who lost their son to a driving accident go all the way to the White House in the USA in a bid to bring the driver to justice. Will their persistence pay off? We will have to wait and see, but in the meantime, we are told by Jesus to pray always and to never, ever give up – Amen
