The Blind Beggar (Luke 18:31-43)

In Luke 18:31-43, Jesus is walking with His disciples to Jerusalem where He will be crucified, buried, and resurrected to reconcile us to God as an atonement for our sin.  As He drew near to Jericho, a blind beggar cried out: “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” (38-39). As we study Jesus’ response, let us consider our own needs.

  1. Identify Your Needs
    1. Is it a Want?
    2. Is it a Need?
  2. Present Your Needs
    1. Ask in Faith
    2. Ask the Father
    3. Ask through Jesus
  3. Entrust Your Needs
    1. Believe that God Hears
    2. Believe that God Cares
    3. Believe that God Answers

What are your greatest needs?  Take a moment to write all of them down.

Pray the following over these needs:

  • God, I have identified a need in my life and humbly bring it to You in prayer. I will not be deterred by anyone else or any problems that arise.
  • God, I ask You in faith in Jesus’ name. I trust that you hear my prayer and care about me.  I have faith that you will give me the best answer at the best time.
  • God, I will persistently pray over these needs; not because I doubt your mercy, but because I trust that you are pleased with my dependence on You. Help me and strengthen me as I persistently and patiently wait.
