Luke   18: 1-8

18:1 Now he also told them a parable, that we should continually pray and not cease,

18:2 saying: “There was a certain judge in a certain city, who did not fear God and did not respect man.

18:3 But there was a certain widow in that city, and she went to him, saying, ‘Vindicate me from my adversary.’

18:4 And he refused to do so for a long time. But afterwards, he said within himself: ‘Even though I do not fear God, nor respect man,

18:5 yet because this widow is pestering me, I will vindicate her, lest by returning, she may, in the end, wear me out.’ ”

18:6 Then the Lord said: “Listen to what the unjust judge said.

18:7 So then, will not God grant the vindication of his elect, who cry out to him day and night? Or will he continue to endure them?

18:8 I tell you that he will quickly bring vindication to them. Yet truly, when the Son of man returns, do you think that he will find faith on earth?”
