Story behind the song
Musical presentation of Luke 18:1-5. This is the parable of the widow and the unconcerned judge.
(hook 1) UNSTOPPABLE FORCE, MEET UNMOVEABLE OBJECT (v.1 the widow) There was a widow, who had an enemy. But she was a fighter, determined to be free. (hook 2) UNSTOPPABLE FORCE (v.2 the judge) There was a judge, who had no God. And no compassion. His heart was hard. (hook 3) AN UNMOVEABLE OBJECT (v.3 widow asks for help) The judge kept refusing to hear her plea. So she kept returning persistently. (hook 4) UNSTOPPABLE FORCE, MEET UNMOVEABLE OBJECT (v.4 judge wearies) He tires of the widow. To him she's a pest. For strictly selfish reasons, he grants her request. (INSTRUMENTAL) (v.5 not a comparison) The judge and the LORD are worlds apart. Comparison is not why the story is there. The message is not to teach about God, But to teach about persistent prayer. (hook 5) AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE THAT MOVES UNMOVEABLE OBJECTS (v.6 extra bonus) When you get a taste of successful prayer, And learn to trust in persistence, (learning to love patience. Romans 5:3-5) You'll start to love being patient, As much as you love the deliverance. (hook 6) AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE THAT MOVES UNMOVEABLE OBJECTS ------------------------------------------------- Luke 18:1-5 1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
