Prayer: It’s Just Telling Him What’s Going On

The two men were desperate.  They couldn’t see, but they could hear.  A multitude was passing by.  Who are they?  What’s going on? Jesus is passing by.  Jesus of Nazareth…the healer.   They started screaming “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!”

More sounds….commotion…people telling them to be quiet.

Suddenly, nothing…

“Jesus stood still and called them, saying, “What do you want me to do for you?” (Matthew 20:32 NRSV)

It’s him.  It’s really him. 

They quickly told him:  “Lord, let our eyes be opened.”

He did it.

I wonder if we would have spoken up or gone quiet.

Jesus stands still and asks us:  “what do you want me to do for you?”

Our answer is our prayer.

  1. I am so thankful we have a God to whom we can go whenever we need/want to. There is no middle man in the way. Also, we know God listens to us and provides answers.
