Day 163 Bartimaeus is healed Matt 20:29-34; Mark 10:46-52; Luke 18: 35-45

Guided reflection:

            Have you noticed that these last few days, all three of the gospels have included these stories? 

These days must have made a powerful impact!   I love this story – a man sees his chance to be healed and starts yelling at Jesus… others are embarrassed and try to shush him, but he would not be shushed!  He was so close to a possible miracle, he would not allow the opinion of others to keep him for his miracle!  Then, Jesus hears him and asks “what do you want me to do for you?”  “Heal my sight!  I want to see!”  And Jesus did… and he rejoiced… and all the others rejoiced… what a day!  If Jesus came close to you today, how would you respond to the question: “What do you need from me today?”

Guided Prayer:

            “Jesus, today this is what I need from you:  ____________________________”
