What do you desire?
Jesus asks the blind man, "What do you want?" He asks us also. He is not asking what we want as far as material goods go, but what are our deepest desires. Am I in touch with what I really want? I think the Holy Spirit gives us the desires and then helps us to discover them. Sometimes they are hidden deep in our hearts and we are almost afraid to acknowledge the fact that we are longing to be loved, or to encounter Jesus in a more tangible way, or to be able to give his love to others, etc. I think we need to discover our desires and then not be afraid to pray for their realization.
