I think Jesus sighed and looked to the heavens in order to show the man where his healing was coming from. After reading this, I am able to picture Jesus standing in front of a man who can not hear, can not speak and has no clue who this man is or what is about to happen to him.  So Jesus takes him aside and (I think) Jesus looks at him, puts His fingers in His OWN ears, spits (meaning "bad"), then Jesus grabs His OWN tongue (while the man stares at Him) and then looks to the Heavens to show the man where this miracle is about to come from. I think Jesus was signing, long before anyone had a clue.  He is amazing....

THE HEALING PROCESS

I beleive when he looked up to heaven, He was glorifying his father for the work he was about to do. He knew his source of power and he acknowledges it.

As for the sigh, I think Jesus has seen some things in the future that those around him cannot see. The sighing signifies the weight of what he saw.

Rev. John & Paula Stevenson Teach You.
The sigh and the looking up to heaven were for the deaf man`s benefit.As he saw Jesus looking up to heaven,he would realize where the power for this miracle was coming from.As he saw Jesus breath a deep sigh,he would perhaps understand that Jesus is praying on his benefit.

In Mark Jesus told the people not tell anyone what he did for the deaf and mute man, what do you think about them telling anyway?

What do you think about the people telling about what Jesus did for the deaf and mute man when he told them not to?

Why do you think Jesus looked up to heaven and then sighed before the healing?
Maybe he was very tired exhausted after so many healings brought and all the multidudes following and proclaiming his healing powers ''he did not tell to say it as he was not looking for fame and some charlatans even for money but had to come from the conviction rooted in the people testifying with their eyes''. Pleading His father to concede him a moment for some prayerful rest ''restful prayer''? :''

Have you never looked up to Heaven while praying, and been so overcome with the love that you feel, that the only response you have is to sigh? I believe that Jesus looked up to His Father, with compassion in His heart and for permission to heal. What He received was His Father`s love, so strong was His acceptance of His Son`s actions...Jesus felt that overwhelming love...and could but sigh.

The men`s ears were opened..Jesus was doing what God hasd promised to do when He came to redeem His people. Seeing all the people suffer , he was compassionate for them.

Jesus heals a deaf and mute man
Jesus is looking the Father at heaven, by whom he was sent, and from whom, as man, he received his authority and power. Then Jesus sighed before the healing, as commiserating the case of the poor man, and reflecting with concern upon his sin, that had been the occasion of it. These actions of looking up to heaven and sighing, as they may be understood in a spiritual sense, or with relation to the spiritual healing of a sinner, may show that such a blessing comes from above ie. from the Father of heaven. Jesus had done nothing without the permission of the Father.

The Healing of a Deaf and Mute Man

Again he departed from the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and came to the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the region of Decapolis. They brought to him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech. They begged him to lay his hand on him. He took him aside from the multitude, privately, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat, and touched his tongue. Looking up to heaven, he sighed, and said to him, "Ephphatha!" that is, "Be opened!" Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was released, and he spoke clearly. He commanded them that they should tell no one, but the more he commanded them, so much the more widely they proclaimed it. They were astonished beyond measure, saying, "He has done all things well. He makes even the deaf hear, and the mute speak!"
