Apocalypse 1:1-4, 2:1-5; Ps 1; Luke 18:35-43

What do you want?

In the Gospel passage, why does Jesus ask the blind man what he wants? Surely Jesus could see he was blind? The man was desperate, screaming to get the Lord’s attention. Not a mild, gentle request but a full-blown plea. Is the force of our prayer a measure of our faith – the mild, gentle request showing little or no faith that our need will be met? The blind man’s forceful cry showed the degree of his faith. So, may we know what we want of Jesus and let our prayer for help be like the blind man’s.
