Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road. Mark 10:46-52 NIV
Look at the original request of the blind man. He asks for mercy. Not the mercy which this world offers, but divine mercy from God. Did this blind man realize the wisdom within his request? He would not be denied by those surrounding him attempting to keep him from calling out to Jesus. When Christ asked what the man wished him to do, he was humble, just making the statement that he wanted to see. It truly was his faith which healed him. When we make a request of Christ, is it like this blind beggar, asking for mercy, or do we go into specifics? Remember that Christ already knows that which you need. Why not seek His mercy, letting Him decide the manner in which mercy shall be shown to you? Trust in Christ. No one knows better than He that which you need. You may not even know what you really need, but Christ does know. Ask for divine mercy. Let Him provide that which you truly need.
