How do you understand and respond to this question? "Do you want courage?"

Yes. "He doesn't want courage." The word "want" means to lack sth. According to Oxford Learner Dictionary, it is just informal in this sense.

The meaning Michael mentions, I'd expect to see as "want of" or "want for".

Here, "want" may be being used in the now-rare, older sense, of "lack" - Do you lack courage? Are you afraid? Of course it could be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, talking to the Lion.
