Each life has a story, a plot. Blindness was part of the plot of these men’s lives.
However, their persistent faith changed the plot and ushered them into a new destiny.
They asked Jesus for a new story. And he said,

.Matthew 20 29-34
Two Blind Men Receive Sight
29 As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. 30 Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
A desperate faith.
31 The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”
They wanted what they wanted so badly that they were not going to snubbed into silence.
32 Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.
As he asks us.
33 “Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.”
That is prayer. A simple statement of need.
34 Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.
God is a compassionate God
