Demons, Dogs and Answered Prayer

On Mothers' Day Mark 7:24-30 brings us the story of a faithful, stalwart mother who draws near to God for something only He can deliver.

The persistence of this mother illustrates the labour of unceasing prayer.  This story (told in Mark 7 and Matthew 15) arms us with the patience we need, to continue in prayer when it appears we are getting no result.

This Mother goes away successful in her petition and God is glorified by her great faith.  We would do well to follow her example and draw near to God in Prayer.

Thank You for the words God gave you.
The sermon was one I could understand, I will keep praying, I will keep asking the Lord for help, and will continue to watch for an answer like I have been doing for many years.
