Jesus did not answer a word.
She was a Canaanite woman. Her daughter was suffering terribly, being demon-possessed. All she wanted was for the Son of David to heal her child. But she was a Canaanite. What right had she to make her petition to Jesus?
She believed in Jesus, this Canaanite woman, she had faith in him, and Jesus healed her daughter.
We are God’s children. We have the right, through Christ, to petition our Father. May our prayers be rooted in faith like that of the Canaanite woman. Then we will see God working for us.
