Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" Jesus answered, "Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. John 9:1-3 (NKJV)
Lord Jesus, help all those who are struck down by disease or infirmity. Let your Father be glorified by their healing.
They brought him who formerly was blind to the Pharisees. Now it was a Sabbath when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes. Then the Pharisees also asked him again how he had received his sight. He said to them, "He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I see." Therefore some of the Pharisees said, "This Man is not from God, because He does not keep the Sabbath." Others said, "How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?" And there was a division among them. John 9:13-16 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, set us and our shepherds free from legalism.
They said to the blind man again, "What do you say about Him because He opened your eyes?" He said, "He is a prophet." John 9:17 (NKJV)
Jesus, open our eyes as well to who you are.
And these things we write to you that your joy may be full. 1 John 1:4 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, help us know Jesus better so that our joy may be full.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:8-9 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, set us free from self-deception and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
