Lent – Saturday – April 16

Mark 10:46-47

“Lord Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me,” the blind beggar cried. Imagine you are blind, homeless and hungry. You have been so since birth. Now the chance for life and healing is within your grasp. How would you pray this prayer? Would you mumble it? Would you politely pose it? No. You would do as anyone would do in such a circumstance. You would bowl over people and scream at the top of your lungs, “Lord, Jesus, have mercy on me!” The disciples were embarrassed. Jesus was not. He answers the prayer. He is not afraid of this man’s desperate plea. Neither is he afraid of ours. We can come to him—in any circumstance.
Lord Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me. Amen.
