Read and Meditate on Today’s Scripture Union Daily Guide for Sunday 29th May 2022. May the Lord bless you through His Word, Amen!


Topic: Persistence and Humility

Opening Prayer: As I read your word O Lord, grant me an insight and grace to do your will in Jesus name.

Scripture: Luke 18:1‐14

Question(s) for Reflection
• Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?

If someone says, “God is sovereign – He knows everything, so there is no need to repeatedly present our needs to Him.” How does the parable of the persistent widow in vs.1‐8 counter that argument? Notice that God’s chosen ones ‘cry out to Him day and night’ (v.7). Some friends prayed for the conversion of someone’s nephew for 19 years before he came to the Lord.

Compare this parable with Matthew 7:7‐11. ‘Ask?, seek?, knock’ are all continuous tense, i.e. keep on asking, seeking, knocking. Jesus’ command could not be clearer! The Parable of the Pharisee and Tax Collector (vs.9‐14) is full of contrasts. How many can you find? Tax Collectors were utterly despised for being corrupt collaborators with the Romans, while the Pharisees were highly respected religious leaders.

Surely God would accept the Pharisee’s prayer rather than the tax collector’s. But here it was the other way round. Why? The Pharisee proudly prayed about himself (vs.11‐12). He was self‐righteous and thought he did not need forgiveness (see Isaiah 64:6). The tax collector was devastated by his sin and humbly pleaded for forgiveness (v.13). Whose prayer was answered and why? Read v.14.

Practice/Word Application
So: We need to be both persistent, penitent and humble when we pray.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
• Lord, please have mercy on me for I am a sinner who needs your forgiveness.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with
Judges 6:23; 1 Kings 3‐5, Matthew 25
