Two blind men push through crowds asking the Son of David for Mercy.
They were determined to be heard above the crowds. They had a proper measure of themselves before Jesus in asking for mercy. Although it was an attention getter, Jesus needed a little more specific information on what they needed.
I know that I have used the prayer of "Lord have mercy on us" in a crises and later when I could think straight, talk to Jesus about the specifics of what was needed. It is comforting to know that when we pray, Jesus has compassion on us also and then he touches our lives.Also when we receive clarity from God, like the two blind men, we need to follow HIM. Siobhan
