Camp Heartland Cross in snow 2Scripture – Luke 18: 35-43

As [Jesus] approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging.  When he heard a crowd going by, he asked what was happening.  They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.”

Then he shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Those who were in front sternly ordered him to be quiet; but he shouted even more loudly, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Jesus stood still and ordered the man to be brought to him; and when he came near, he asked him,”What do you want me to do for you?”

He said, “Lord, let me see again.”

Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has saved you.”

Immediately he regained his sight and followed him, glorifying God; and all the people, when they saw it, praised God.



Dear Lord,

We pray for a faith that would lead us to shout out to you as you go by.  We pray for a faith that would allow us to ask for our sight again.  Or for renewed hope.  Or for forgiveness.   Or for healing (of all sorts).  Or for courage.   And then let us glorify you with our words, our hearts and our lives.
