Throughout this week we are looking at how a blind man shows us how to pray for a miracle.
“Those who led the way rebuked (the blind man) and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" Luke 18: 39
The Blind man is persistent. He reminds me of the woman who sought healing from Jesus thinking after she had tried every thing else. She believed that if she were only be able to touch the hem of His garment, then she will be healed so she crawled through the crowd to get to Jesus.
I like people like these two who are determined. I admire their tenacity. Nobody's going to stop them from getting their requests to Jesus. That’s the way to approach God, with persistence. The verse says “he shouted all the more”. Even more loudly he said he wanted a miracle!" He's passionate and he's persistent.
Are you relentless in praying for your needs? Or do you just pray for them and then just drop them when the answer doesn't come immediately. Do you give up too soon?
Colossians 4:2 says "Don't be weary in prayer. Keep at it. Watch for God's answers." He's saying, don't quit too soon. Jesus said it like this in the Sermon on the Mount, Ask… Seek… Knock…"Keep on asking, keep on seeking, keep on knocking."
Need a miracle? Be passionate and persistent as you ask God in prayer.
