1 Then Jesus taught the followers that they should always pray and never lose hope. He used this story to teach them:
2 “Once there was a judge in a town. He did not care about God. He also did not care what people thought about him.
3 In that same town there was a woman whose husband had died. She came many times to this judge and said, ‘There is a man who is doing bad things to me. Give me my rights!’
4 But the judge did not want to help the woman. After a long time, the judge thought to himself, ‘I don’t care about God. And I don’t care about what people think.
5 But this woman is bothering me. If I give her what she wants, then she will leave me alone. But if I don’t give her what she wants, she will bother me until I am sick.’”
6 The Lord said, “Listen, there is meaning in what the bad judge said.
7 God’s people shout to him night and day, and he will always give them what is right. He will not be slow to answer them.
8 I tell you, God will help his people quickly. But when the Son of Man comes again, will he find people on earth who believe in him?”
