Luke 11: 1-28.

Many of us are familiar with Jesus teaching his disciples the Lord’s Prayer and His parables about persistence. However, they’re worth looking at again, especially if we go on to see what Luke includes next. Jesus’ ministry challenges evil powers that hold people captive. So-called spiritual warfare is a dimension to prayer that we should not overlook, even if we’re wise not to over-emphasise it. Wisdom is also found in obeying God’s word, so that our lives are filled with good things.
