“Jesus!” He called. “Help me! Jesus, help me!”
Now, lots of people were making noise walking. Lots of people were making noise talking. BUT — JESUS HEARD BARTIMAEUS ANYWAY, and Jesus stood still. “What do you want me to do for you?” He asked kindly.
What did you learn?
Jesus hears when people talk to Him. He heard Bartimaeus. When you talk to Jesus, He hears you too.*
