Friday - Jesus said, "What do you want me to do for you?"

Friday June 14
Prayer:    Jesus,  Son of God,  have mercy upon us.   Jesus,  Son of God,  heal our infirmities.  Jesus,  Son of God,  grant us Your peace.  Amen.

Read St. Luke 18:  35 – 43

As Jesus and the disciples are heading toward Jerusalem via Jericho,  a blind man hears a group of people walking past.   The blind man asks someone who is walking past.  The person says to the blind man, “It is Jesus!”  

At this moment,  the blind man calls out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”   The crowd try to shush him but the blind man calls out in a louder voice, “Jesus, Son of David,  have mercy on me!”  

Now the blind man is sitting by the roadside because his blindness is considered a sin and unclean.   The blind man can not go up to people and ask for money  nor healing.  But this blind man used his voice.  

Jesus stops and orders the blind man be brought to him.   Jesus asks the blind man, “What do you want me to do for you?”
The blind man answers,  “Lord I want to see”.     Immediately,  the blind man is healed and praises God and then follows Jesus. 

Today,  meditate upon the question that Jesus asked the blind man ….   “What do you want me to do for you?”           Picture Jesus sitting beside you right now.     How will you answer Jesus’  question…..   “What do you want me to do for you”?

Prayer:   Divine Healer,    You are our life and our love and our strength.   May we be aware of You throughout this day as we reflect on Your love and Your healing and Your wisdom and Your strength.   This we ask in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
