Genesis 2:18- 25, Psalm 128: 1-5,
Mark 7: 24-30

Let’s learn a lesson

Here is Jesus trying to escape from people but this woman susses him out. She has a need but not for herself. The Lord tries to put her off but wittily she turns his derogatory comment to her favour. Jesus sets her daughter free as a reward for the faith that led her to humbly persevere in asking. cf. Matthew 15: 28. What a lesson in how to pray prayers of petition.
