Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. And there was a widow in the town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’
“For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care about men, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually wear me out with her coming!’”
And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
There are four lessons about prayer that come from this parable that directly reflect a woman’s inner beauty.
- We are to pray without ceasing (see also 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18). A strong woman has the desire to be in constant communication with God and demonstrates her faithfulness through persistent prayer.
- God always hears us when we pray (see also Psalm 4:3). A wise woman believes God hears her prayers and seeks His will above her own.
- We are to approach God with confidence (see also Ephesians 3:12). An influential woman boldly approaches the throne of God knowing she’s most powerful on her knees.
- We can pray for anything (see also Ephesians 6:18). A woman of faith prays in all circumstances trusting God is just in all things.
