Prayer, Patience and Perseverance
Then Jesus told them a parable about their need
to pray always and not to lose heart.
He said, "In a certain city there was a judge
who neither feared God nor had respect for people. In that city
there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, 'Grant me
justice against my opponent.' For a while he refused; but later
he said to himself, 'Though I have no fear of God and no respect
for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will
grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually
And the Lord said, "Listen to what the unjust
judge says. And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones
who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them?
I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when
the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"

We ask/pray/beg for perseverance, but it is God who
keeps waiting on us.
We need to be persistent to get anywhere
close to reciprocating.
