Today’s Message: Shortest But Most Potent Prayer



“And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.”(Mark 10:47)

Today’s Text: Mark 10:46-52:

A cry for mercy is the shortest, yet most potent prayer. In case you do not know how to pray, you may kneel and while beholding the glory of God, ask Him to have mercy on you.

In all circumstances you will not fail to receive the supernatural intervention of God. “Have mercy on me” is a simple prayer that covers a multitude of problems. Everything you need is in this prayer, have mercy.

As the blind man pleaded for mercy, the soul of Jesus stirred because for such had He come. I do not know how far you have come through those difficulties and pains.Time has come to say the mercy prayer. Jesus stopped when He heard the voice of faith.

He asked, “What would you that I should do unto thee?” Your faith on the mercy and grace of God will make you whole. The greatest physician may not have been able to help you but the mercy of God will.

God’s mercy has ability and power. As you pray, God will show you mercy and every hidden difficulty will come to light and be uprooted. Whatever problems you have, God will address them with the anointing of mercy.

Matthew 9:27-30 says, “And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us. And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.”

The blood of Jesus Christ is an instrument of mercy. The blood was put upon the mercy seat and the forgiveness of mankind was endorsed. Whatever the need, it is only Jesus that can solve it.

Like blind Bartimaeus, call upon Jesus. Present your requests and expect reprieve.
