The blind receive their sight

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.

         “Go and tell John what you hear and see:
         the blind receive their sight, the lame walk,
         the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised,
         and the poor have good news brought to them.”

                  —Matthew 11.4-5

Jesus, you healed the blind.
You opened the eyes of those who could not see
the miracles of God’s grace all around them.
Remove the scales that cover my eyes,
the cataracts of fear that keep me from seeing
God’s presence so near.
Teach me to see in the dark,
to trust what I can’t yet see,
to hear the promise,
to sense the movement of God,
to know God’s new day dawning over me.
Help me to see justice and mercy where it emerges,
to see glory in the ordinary,
and hope in the gloom.
Help me to see with the eyes of faith.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
