Parables on Prayer

1 Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they 1ought to pray and not to 2lose heart, 2 saying, "In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not 3respect man. 3 "There was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, 'aGive me legal protection from my opponent.' 4 "For a while he was unwilling ; but afterward he said to himself, 'Even though I do not fear God nor 4respect man, 5 yet 5because this widow bothers me, I will bgive her legal protection, otherwise by continually coming she will c6wear me out.' " 6 And 7the Lord said, "Hear what the unrighteous judge said; 7 now, will not God 8bring about justice for His 9elect who cry to Him day and night, dand will He 10delay long over them? 8 "I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, 11will He find efaith on the earth?"
