Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith has saved you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.
Throughout his ministry Jesus insisted on the importance of faith. We are challenged to see as Bartimaeus did, with the eyes of faith. It is this faith that recognizes the light of Jesus’ presence and provides freedom from all that blinds us. It is this faith, touched by the gentleness of the Lord, which allows us to follow Jesus on the way.
(Pray to Jesus, using these words or words of your own.)
Jesus, your healing brings life. Give me the grace to see the places in my life most in need of your healing touch so that I may be made whole.
