Biblical Prayer Focus
Luke 18:7-8
“And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”

Ask Jesus, the Son of Man, to help you anticipate His soon return and to deal patiently with the injustices of life until then. Ask that He strengthen your faith in the midst of the challenging times of waiting.
