READING I: Wisdom 18:14-16; 19:6-9 RESPONSORIAL: Psalms 105:2-3, 36-37, 42-43
GOSPEL: Luke 18:1-8
God wants us to grow in faith, he wants us to experience over a period of time the waiting, watching and longing which we could not know if he just gave us our requests at once. In this way we grow in faith. We also have a promise from Jesus that every prayer is answered.
During this time of waiting we often come to see that even when we don't get what we ask, God will always give us what is best for us.
