100 Words on the Daily Gospel in Coptic Lent - 3rd March

Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart

In Luke 18:1-8 our Lord calls us to always pray and not lose heart. We lose heart when we expect God to answer our prayers immediately and in the way we have in mind. When we persevere in our prayer we are confessing our faith in God as the only means of our salvation and the provision of all that we need. There is no-one else for us to turn to, and so we turn to God and offer unceasing prayer, often with tears and in confusion. The prayer of the blind man becomes our constant friend – Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.

Prayerfully consider making an offering to God to support Orthodox Missionary work in the UK
