Weekly Moravian Message, October 16, 2016

Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost

Prayer

Will Jesus find faith when he comes again
to gather his people on earth?
Will he find sure proof that we prayed with zeal
for justice and peace and rebirth?

Though fairness seems fickle and hope long gone,
Christ wants his disciples to know
the power to change life lies in our reach.
Through patience and prayer we will grow.

Consider the widow who pled and begged
and pestered the judge of ill fame
that justice be done for the wrong she bore.
Persistence restored her good name.

So pray without ceasing. Never give up.
Keep asking and pleading your case
to God, who is just and faithful and good.
Then Christ will find faith in this place.
