Application: I find it hard sometimes to claim what it is that I am seeking from God. In the words of my friend Ernie.....that makes me normal, I guess. But I love that Jesus is willing to go there. To ask the mother of her want and desire for her sons (selfish as it may be). To have the blind beggar ask what might be implied. In a way, Jesus has us name it and claim it, both to know of what is ailing us (blindness) and our selfish wants (having our children sit at the place of honor).
How do my prayers reflect my ability to claim what it is that I am seeking that God speak into my heart, change my behavior, resolve a conflict? How do I articulate that if Jesus were to ask me?
Prayer: Lord, help me claim what it is that I really desire from you.
