Matthew 20:30,32,33 "Two blind men were sitting beside the road. When they heard that Jesus was coming that way, they began shouting, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!" When Jesus heard them, he stopped and called, "What do you want me to do for you?" "Lord," they said, "we want to see!"
How obvious can it get. Two blind men want to see. Couldn't Jesus have guessed that? Why would he make them to state the obvious? I think the answer is as simple as the request of our two blind friends. Jesus wanted them to ask. He wanted to have communication with them.
Maybe that is what Jesus is asking us today. "What do you what me to do for you?" Perhaps we make our prayers too complicated instead of stating the obvious. "Lord, I want my son to live for you." Lord, I need help with my finances." Lord, I desire to be more creative in my writings." I think this is a powerful lesson our two blind friends and Jesus taught us, and we would be wise to state the obvious.
