Thursday of the 27 week in ordinary time

LK 11:5-13

“Mom, can you buy me this or that?” “Daddy, can I go there?” I think all parents hear or used to hear these requests all the time. Children can be very persistent in asking for what they want. They can be so persistent that parents may even give in when they run out of patience or simply to avoid being asked for something over and over again. In the Gospel for today Jesus tells us that God is like a loving parent who will grant us what we wish for just because of our persistence. We may think at times that God doesn’t listen to us because He doesn’t answer our prayers right away, but God is there and He listens, and He knows what is best for us. But maybe He wants us to wait a little bit longer and to be a little more persistent in asking Him so that He might give us what we ask for. He knows how important this request is to us. And no, God never loses His patience with us. “And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
