A sting in the tail

The sting is in the tail of the Gospel reading. “… he marvelled because of their unbelief.” His audience believed in God otherwise they wouldn’t have been in the Synagogue. They had the faith that is commitment to God and his Law. What they didn’t have and what surprised the Lord Jesus was that they lacked expectant faith. They fell to criticising him instead of hoping for miracles. When I pray do I really expect God to hear and answer me?
