Matthew 20: 29-34
verse 32: Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.
Two blind men sitting by the road called out to Jesus as he passed by with a crowd following him. Jesus stopped and called out to them, simply asking them what they wanted from him. ”We want our sight.” Jesus touched their eyes and they received their sight.
This is another example of Jesus letting us know we can ask anything of him. We need the faith to ask, though. My faith is often too weak to allow me to ask with hope. I am so fixed in the present, it is difficult for me to see prayers answered in some other way, at some other time.
Today I ask for suggestions from anyone who reads this, for a book to read about prayer. Why do we pray? How do we recognize answered prayers? How do we pray in a way which is pleasing to God?
Father God, I know you can do all things, and you can do all things without any help from me. Help me, Lord, to see my role in your creation. How can I communicate more meaningfully with you? How can I know you better? Amen
