The Rev. Dr. Larry Goodpaster
Bishop Larry Goodpaster offers three thoughts to take from Jesus' parable in Luke 18 to help us unleash the power of prayer for living faithfully: First, prayer is believing that God will act. Second, we must be persistent in our praying. And third, we must trust that the power of love and compassion, of God’s justice and mercy, will ultimately prevail.

The Rev. Dr. Paul Tellstrom
The ten lepers in Luke 17 represent ten people isolated from their families, living with physical pain and ostracism, exhausted and friendless, who call out to Jesus. Only one exhibits gratitude, and Dr. Paul Tellstrom says our own authentic faith can enrich our lives and make us more open and loving people--but it all starts with gratitude.
