The Parables of Jesus 10: The persistent neighbour

Barbara explores the story of the persistent neighbour; examining the nature of our relationship with God.


She explores how this story reveals that God wants us to be so very honest with Him and speak Him as we would a friend for those things we would genuinely want to share with him. It is ok to be true to yourself and honest with Him.

Jesus is keen for us to know that we need to be persistent to keep on asking, not as a nagging child but as part of our ongoing conversation with our friend.

It may be that there are issues in your life where you have given up that you believe the candle of your hope has blown out.  This story invites us to believe again, to ask again, and to Hope again.
