||In Luke 11: 5-8, we have another parable about being persistent in prayer. The typical poor Israelite family lived in a one-room house. And in many of the poorer homes, the house also served as a part-time stable for the family's few sheep, goats, and chickens.
Getting the whole household to sleep was a considerable undertaking. Once the animals settled down, the parents could get the children to sleep. And once the children were asleep, the parents would do most anything to keep them that way. Why did the man finally get up to give the neighbor some bread?
