Blind, Beggin’, and Bold

February 6, 2022 / Dan McEvoy / Mark 10:46-52

Core Truth: The bigger and bolder we pray, the greater the opportunity for only God to get the credit.

Mark 10:46

How big and bold we pray…

⇒ …is based on how big we God is.

Mark 10:47

⇒ …depends on how we are.

Mark 10:48; Revelation 3:17

⇒ …can open the opportunity for God to respond.

Mark 10:49-50; Mark 10:51; Matthew 7:7

⇒ …allows us to truly see and Him.

Mark 10:52

Spiritual Challenge: Create a Prayer Circle.

Theme: Persistent Prayer

Share Together:

When has there been a place that you had humbled yourself to ask for help (i.e. directions, roadside assistance, a favor from a friend, etc.)? How did you feel asking?

Reflect together:

What impacted you the most from Sunday’s message?

Read Together:

Mark 10:46-52

Discuss Together:

  • What do you think was Luke’s reason for pointing out Bartimaeus’ blindness? How do you think Bartimaeus was treated in that culture?
  • What is the significance of Bartimaeus calling Jesus the “Son of David”? How does this compare with us calling out to Jesus as we are in need?
  • What can we admire about Bartimaeus’ persistence? How does that relate to us as we seek Jesus as well?
  • What was the crowd’s reaction? How have you felt resistance from others as you sought Jesus in your life?
  • What do you admire about Bartimaeus’ response when Jesus called him? 
  • Why do you think Jesus asked Bartimaeus such an obvious question? 
  • What does Jesus mean, “your faith has healed you”? How is this true for us today?
  • In what concrete ways can we pray like blind, bold beggars?

Pray Together:

Take time to share how God has answered prayer and any prayer requests you have today.
