Prayer for the Day:
Forgive us, God, when we think only of ourselves and are blind to the needs of others. Give us a new way of seeing and being – open our eyes to the needs of our world and help us respond as your servants. Strengthen our faith as we journey with you. Amen
Question for reflection:
Jesus, servant and savior, asked blind Bartimaeus, “What do you want me to do for you?” Let me ask you, “What is it you want or need Jesus to do for you?” How can you, as a follower of Jesus, respond to the needs of a hurting world? What cost might you pay for being a disciple of Christ?
