“And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?” Luke 18:7

God isn’t an unjust judge. This is a how-much-more parable. If the wicked sometimes do the right thing, then how much more will God who is good, always do what is right. How much more will God listen and answer those who persist in prayer. Jesus’ told the parable to encourage us to pray in faith (verse 1, 8). He reminds us God is a good judge who wants to answer our prayers.
