The Persistent Widow

The Parable of the unjust judge isn’t so much a story to compare what God is like, rather to contrast the genuine care, responsiveness, and overwhelming love that our heavenly Father provides for his elect who demonstrate qualities found in the persistent widow..

What kind of attitude does Jesus want to see in us when he returns to the earth?

What were the elect in Rev 6:10 crying to God for?

What can we pray to God for?

What lesson do we learn from the Persistent Widow?

How should we be living in light of the Lords parable of the persistent widow?

Can you find a verse in the Bible to show how God responds to prayer?

What kind of attitude did the Widow possess?

What is the greek work that describes how often we should pray?

  1. 1. He wants us to have a giving spirit and not refuse others “lower” than ourselves, everyone is equal to god, King or peasent. He also wants us to not give up praying. never give up on God beause he hears you each time and the more you ask and persist the more he will uderstand and realise your faith.
    2. God’s elect were being persecuted and were crying for VENGENCE! Even though it takes time God is working with us and protecting us.
    3. They want to have God avenge them because they are being persecuted by the athiests and not being accepted by outsiders because of their belief.e.g. in the old days when you were killed for believing in christ.(saul) 4. We learn from this lesson that we should NEVER stop praying to God for help, because he is there, and will pick us up and carry us over the finish gate of the kingdom where we can spend eternity praising God and celebrating….can’t wait. ;)All the trials that face you, look at it with joy because the kingdom is so much greater.
    5. Be living every day as if it were our last. with everything we do just say “What would Jesus do?” and you will not stray from the path, and with anything too challenging for us just pray, pray, pray and pray for help and he will assist you.
    6. Isa_59:1 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear://///// This verse tells us that Nothing can stop him from saving and helping us in trials. because he is the creator of the heavens and universe and earth and everything, so that one problem is not going to get in his way.
    7. The attitude of the widow was very successful because she persisted and never gave up.
    8. The special greek word is pan’-tot-eh which means always.

  2. Q.1. Jesus wants to find us with a persistent and a humble attitude.
    Q.2. It says that wont God do much more to avenge us than that judge so we need to believe.
    Q.3. He will avenge them of all their sins and all the things that they have done wrong. So that they can have a hope of the kingdom.
    Q.4. That our hope is like a race we all look to the crown or award some the way we need to finish the race is never giving up and we need to follow in Jesus’ foot steps.
    Q.5. He want’s us no never give up and not turn aside. he wants us all to finish and get that award that he has promised us.
    Q.6. Isa 59:1 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear.
    Q.7. that if we never give up and are persistent that we will eventually get what we want.
    Q.8. Because he is happy that we are trying to get some thing and he will eventually get one.

  3. 1) When jesus returns he wants to find a good attitude and that we’ve been persistent and that we never give up.
    2) The elect were actually crying out to him, but God will bear long with them.
    3)They wanted God to avenge them of their sins.
    4) That jesus died for us and we need to recognise what he did and now jesus is at the right hand of God, and he want us to not give up and be like him.
    5) He want us to run this race and finish it and not give up, and we must do good things in our life and those things must be worthwhile.
    6)Behold, the Lords hand is not shortened that it cannot save neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear Isaiah.
    7) The big lesson we learn is that we must not give up and if keep on being persistent like the widow we will get what we want (:
    8) No he doesn’t the word is always which in greek is TTÁVTOTE.

  4. 1. He wants us to be kind and compassionate about his kingdom, also he wants us to NEVER GIVE UP* even if we’re in our darkest times we need to trust in the Lord with all our heart 2. The elect were crying for help, God does not get annoyed with us. The difference between the stories is the Judge was always saying no but God is the opposite he is kind and gives justice to all.
    3. They want God to avenge them of their sins or if they come to a situation like the Widow and the Judge then God will give them justice 4. If we want to get to the kingdom then we need to recognise what Jesus did for us so that we could be saved He wants us NEVER GIVE UP, he wants us to have courage and always know that Jesus and his Father are right beside us also he wants us to pray.
    5. Isa 59:1 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear:
    I chose this verse because it is saying that Gods ears aren’t heavy and that everything we say comes straight to God, this means that God can hear our prayers and always wants to because he knows that nothing could ever deafen his ears and even if scientists try to make a marvellous invention that could somehow make a really loud noise it wouldn’t do anything that could ever hurt God 6. When the widow wants something that is desperate she puts all her energy into trying to get what she wants. When we need something like, if it were trying to stop child labour or stop people from treating other people bad like in India how if you don’t pay for protection then you get whipped until you bleed, then we need to try hard and be persistent like the Widow.
    7. The special word I guess is ALWAYS (pan’-tot-eh), it means From and every when, that is, at all times: – always (-s), ever (-more).
