Praying is sometimes silent - no response from God. Or there is an answer but it's an unwanted response. Luke 18 records two prayers and two compassionate responses from Jesus. In one, a woman prays, not giving up. In the other, a blind man simply cries out for Jesus' mercy. In both cases, the people praying were considered a nuisance by others but not by Jesus. Be a nuisance. Be a pest. Don't give up. Encounter His compassion.
Luke 18:1-8 & 35-43
