Matthew 20:32-33

And stopping, Jesus called them and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.”

Insight: Jesus wanted these men to identify what they needed.  How many times have I payed for  general "blessing" but not an individual need?  Asking God for even the little and specific things shows him that we trust him even more.  I wonder if there are times that I did not receive from him what I desired because I simply did not ask ... 

Prayer: Lord, thank you that you are a God of blessing.  That you only want what is best for us.  Help me to remember that in all things that I need from you, that I speak it out and ask for it by name.  Help me to put even more trust into your blessings on my life.  Amen.
