Gospel: Luke 18:1-8
“..always pray and never become discouraged.” (cf Luke 18:1)
What challenges your prayer life? Jesus knows that we may get discouraged when our petitions seem to be unanswered. Yet today, He encourages us to never give up on praying - whether things are clear or
uncertain; whether you feel high or low, pray; whether you feel it or not; whether you are happy or sad. No prayer goes unheard and He answers not in the way that we want, but in the best way that He knows. Let us trust His time, His way, His plans – and surely, He will never disappoint us.
Mother Mary, you never get discouraged in praying to God. Teach us to persevere like you did.
