Sermon: The Parable of the Persistent Widow

(This is a brief sermon outline taken from ‘The Parable of the Persistent Widow’ (Luke 18:1-8))

Main Thought –We should always pray and not give up (18:1)

From this Parable, we will look at 4 reasons why we can and should persist in prayer. They are as follows;

The persistent widow came to a wicked Judge; we come to a loving Father (18:2,7)

  • The Judge was extremely evil and we should never compare him with God.

“In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men”. (18:1)

  • God is totally the opposite to this wicked Judge

“Will not God bring about justice for His chosen ones, who cry out to Him day and night? (18:7)

Devotional : The Power of Prayer

“…, people brought the sick into the streets and laid then on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by… and all of them were healed” (Acts 5:15-16).

As you think of the Apostle Peter’s ministry in the book of Acts, what comes to mind? Is it fearlessness, anointing, miracle worker, dynamic preacher?

Yes, all these are true and God used Peter powerfully. Through Peter God healed a crippled (Acts 3:6-7) and a paralyzed man (Acts 9:32-35), raised the dead (Acts 9:36-43), opened prison doors and gates (Acts 5:19, 12:8-10) and brought thousands to salvation [Both Jews and Gentiles](Acts 2:41,4:4,10:44-46). As the opening scripture in this devotional records, people even expected to be healed by having Peter’s shadow fall on them as he passed by.
