Faith and Prayer

Jesus tells a parable about the need to pray (Luke 18:1-8).
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. Luke 18:1
After the parable Jesus says,
However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth? Luke 18:8
The question was not "will he find people praying on the earth?"
We begin with prayer and end with faith.

This lead me to ask some other questions:

  • Is a lack of prayer evidence of a lack of faith? Little prayer = little faith
  • If that is true - the question of "how much faith do I have?" is answered by the question "how much do I pray?"
