One day Jesus told his disciples a story
to show that they should always pray

“Once there was a judge in a town. He
did not care about God. He also did not
care what people thought about him.

In that same town there was a woman whose husband
had died. She came many times to this judge and said,
‘There is a man who is doing bad things to me.’
