Have Mercy On Us


I was told that the LORD Jesus Christ healed two blind men in Jericho before His crucifixion in Jerusalem.

I was told that the two blind men were persistent to have their prayer heard even though the crowd told them to keep quiet as they felt that they were a nuisance. But they cried even louder.

The LORD Jesus Christ was compassionate. He heard their prayer from afar and came near them and touched their eyes and they were instantly healed.

The two blind men followed the LORD Jesus Christ all the way to Jerusalem, most probably they also witnessed His crucifixion.

The two blind men saw the Son of God with their own eyes. They had the faith rested in the LORD Jesus Christ.

Sometimes we seek high and low for the LORD, not knowing that He is just beside us.

Sometimes we are too proud to open our mouth to pray. The two blind men didn't speak beautiful language but the LORD Jesus heard them. The LORD heard their cries even from afar. The voices of the crowd couldn't drown the cries of earnest children of God.

The LORD is compassionate and will abundantly bless His people.

High time we carry our burden to the cross and cast upon the LORD Jesus, "Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!" (Matt 20:31)
