Scripture Reading: Mar 10:48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me
Reflections: Society had no hope that he could ever recover his eyesight and cease making a living as a street beggar. So when Jesus passed by one day and blind Bartimaus cried out to him for divine intervention, the people asked him to shut up. But he remained adamant. He cried out the more to Jesus for healing. It was his voice versus that of the people. Soon his voice overshadowed that of the intimidating crowd to reach the ears of Jesus. Jesus was moved and had him healed instantly. People may rule you out for a miracle in life but don’t let them intimidate your ability to ceaselessly cry out to God for a divine intervention. Cry out and don’t stop until you break through. The ceaselessness of your prayers will break through any intimidating barrier in the realms of the spirit. No wonder the Psalmist concluded by saying ‘Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice-Psalm 55:17. Cry out!
Prayer: Dear Lord, grant me grace to overcome anything that seeks to intimidate my Prayer life.
Confession: I am louder than any intimidating voice. No voice can limit my prayer life.
