Quintagesima Sunday (Sunday Before Lent) – Church Back Home- March 2, 2014

This Sunday’s lectionary includes some of the most powerful scripture, but I’d like to focus on one small part – the blind man by the wayside who called out to Jesus.  It shows something about prayer that a lot of us are not taught.  In fact, some of us are taught the opposite of what shows here.

Look at this story and every other story in which Jesus healed someone or brought someone back from the dead.  One thing, comparing those stories to more modern times, is conspicuous by its absence in the stories involving Jesus.  And understanding that will make your prayer more powerful.
