Prayer: Lesson 13 – The Gift of Sight

Heavenly Father,
Bless our teachers and classes today as they conclude this quarter on the Miracles of Jesus. Help us to realize that while You do not always choose to perform miracles of healing in response to our prayers, You are still a miracle-working God. Increase our faith in You. In Jesus' name, we pray this. Amen.

How is our desire for miracles often misplaced?

In "Biblical Perspective" Gayle Woods writes:

Miracles tend to produce excitement, but not necessarily faith. The disciples had seen many miracles, but they were still having issues with their faith. The people were excited about physical healings and paranormal dis- plays of power, but not many were coming to Jesus for spiritual healing. Today some have an unnatural hunger for the supernatural display of miracles in the physical realm, not realizing that the results are temporary and earthly at best. Our mission is spiritual in nature rather than physical.

Discussion: What should be our greatest desire?

Do you really believe?

In "God's Word for Today" David Fry writes:

All of us have been bound by sin; few have been bound by demons. Jesus encountered sinners and demons with the same authority and with the same result. Jesus is greater than any evil that can possess a person.

Then he asks the question: "Why do you think people struggle to accept or believe in Jesus’ power over evil?"
How would you answer this question?
