A long story like the one we have today provides many different points of entry for prayer

The blind man was healed. Can you recall occasions when some blindness of yours was taken away and you could see in a new way?
The Pharisees claimed to be the ones who could see, who knew where God was to be found, when in fact they were blind. It was the man born blind who showed himself open to see the hand of God at work in what happened. There can be some of each in us.

There are many characters in the story: Jesus, the blind beggar, the disciples, the neighbours, the blind man’s parents and the Pharisees. Put yourself in the position of each one and see what you learn from identifying with them.
