"There was a judge in a certain town
who neither feared God nor respected any human being. And a widow in that town used to come to him and say,
'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.'
For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought,
'While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
because this widow keeps bothering me
I shall deliver a just decision for her
lest she finally come and strike me.'"
Pray without ceasing.
In all circumstances give thanks,
for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thes. 5:16-18
