“men ought always to pray, and not to faint” [Luke 18:1]

July 20

“men ought always to pray, and not to faint”. Prayer, an antidote to fainting, brings relief as follows:
First, by the knowledge that there is an Advocate who will attend to one’s need. Secondly, that any who are overwhelmed are invited, indeed, welcomed, to take advantage of this offer. Thirdly, as a result of prayer, either additional inner strength is imparted or the load lightened or the problem removed altogether.
Actually, ‘fainting’ includes inadvertently opting out of one’s responsibility, or inability to face life, yet it is only transient and on ‘coming round’ life has to be faced again. Much better to solve the problem than ‘chicken out’ only to be dragged back later. Once you have grasped the reality of the invitation, you keep coming to the Lord in prayer until an answer is received – just as the widow did to the unjust judge in Jesus’ parable.
