Passing a point and returning an image with the point

I would like to be able to pass in a point value (lat,long) to my map service and receive an image with the point in return.  Something sort of like the map image export where you pass in a bounding box and receive an image the size of the bounding box.  I want to do something similiar, but have the point value that I pass to be in the image as well. 
I'm trying to think of the workflow and then the process on how to do it.  Can I pass in a point value, then somehow have the point added to the map service and then generate a standard size image with the point in the center?
