Matthew 15: 22-28
A Canaanite woman who lived
in that region came to him. “Son
of David!” she cried out. “Have mercy on me, sir! My daughter has a
demon and is in a terrible condition.”
Then Jesus replied, “I have been sent only to the lost sheep of the people of Israel.”
At this the woman came and fell at his feet. “Help me, sir!” she said.
Jesus answered, “It isn’t right to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs.” ”That’s true, sir,” she answered, “but even the dogs eat the leftovers that fall form their master’s table.”
So Jesus answered her, “You have a woman of great faith! What you want will be done for you.”
at that very moment her daughter was healed.
