Give Me Justice Against My Adversary
The purposes of this prayer are: Perseverance and Justice.
God Almighty, Jesus taught his disciples to pray and not lose heart. He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected man. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’ And the Lord said, ‘Hear what the unrighteous judge says. And will God not give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily.’” Luke 18:2–8 (ESV). Merciful Lord, we pray that you hear our pleas and respond to them speedily. Help us to be persistent in our praying, and to pray according to your will. Amen.
