Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 16 October 2022
Exodus 17:8-13. Psalm 121:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8. 2 Timothy 3:14–4:2. Luke 18:1-8.
Is God Slow to Answer Prayer? Moses wearily struggles to keep his hands raised in prayer for the benefit of the People. He needs help. Don’t we all! Timothy is charged to remain faithful to the Scriptures. Us, too! Jesus tells a parable about praying. Don’t be weary, he says. Be persistent, he says. Do it always, he says.
- How is my life of prayer?
- How will a small daily dose of reading the Bible foster my daily prayer? If unsure where to start, read and reread the Sunday texts.
- How can I be relentless in praying day after day, even if it seems God is slow to act?
Use this prayer card to be ever mindful of the Works of Mercy.
