In today’s parable, Jesus tells us much about the nature of God and how we are to pray. In this outlandish story a man in need is rebuffed by his neighbor. Only by sheer persistence does the Friend at Midnight receive his request. How much more will our Father in heaven give good gifts to those who come to Him in prayer!
First Reading: Ephesians 3:14-21 (A Prayer for the Church)
