Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time – October 15-16, 2016 - Persistent prayer.
You know that person, don’t you? One so relentless, he does not yield, he does not back down? She makes the case and does not let it drop? Persistence personified. God invites us, invites me to take this attitude to prayer. “Pray always without becoming weary.” Pray not just for myself. Pray, too, for the needs of others. Do not give up.
• For what shall I pray today?
• For whom shall I pray this week?
• Can I put it all in God’s care – and with my helping hands?
