“Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.”
And her daughter was healed at that moment.”

Matthew 15:21-28

This woman had remarkable faith even in the face of obstacles, in fact in the face of Jesus dismissal, she still remained humble and tenacious. How are we when we do not understand, agree with, or receive an unexpected response when we pray? Do we automatically dismiss or disregard what we hear; do we give up or walk away? This woman did none of the above.

In spite of coming from a world of oppression and then receiving a further knockback, she was confident of the source of healing in Jesus and she was not going to let an opportunity for this escape her. She believed that even if she would only receive a small taste of God that it would be life changing. As a result of her conviction of faith and her humility, her prayers were answered.
