Here’s a little prayer motivation today. With Easter still 19 days away, read chapter 10 of Mark’s Gospel verses 46 to 52.

Here, Jesus is heading toward Jerusalem, the Passover, and His Passion. He’s been telling His disciples along their journey south toward Jerusalem what is coming.

In these verses, even though Jesus knew Bartimaeus was blind, He asked him to speak, to name, the healing he wanted. Now imagine Jesus is asking you, “What do you want Me to do for you?” Perhaps you would like spiritual sight to see and know Jesus better, which theologians suggest is why Jesus picked Bartimaeus to heal here as He approached crucifixion. If so, ask Him for spiritual sight.

Now in your journal write what you would like Jesus to do for you. Let’s pray together, “Jesus help us see You better.”
