Just before this account of Jesus’ healing of the blind men, He taught the disciples a lesson on serving. Jesus modelled His teaching by serving. These blind men could actually “see” better than many who witnessed Jesus’ miracles, for they recognized that He was the “Son of David”, the long-awaited Messiah. They asked for mercy, and Jesus in turn asked them what they wanted from Him. They wanted their sight and Jesus, moved with compassion, touched their eyes and gave them what they asked for.
I read this prayer in “The Open Gate” by David Adam:
For the dullness of our vision.
For the weakness of our faith,
For the joylessness of our living,
Holy Three have mercy upon us,
Forgive our sins,
Help us to seek,
Help us to see,
Help us to serve you.
If Jesus asked you today, “What do you want me to do for you?”, what would you answer?
