Faith Gives Prevalency to Prayer
Matthew 15:21-28
Then Jesus went there, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.…

In the several precedents of praying saints upon Scripture record you may see how the spirit of prayer ebbed and flowed, fell and rose, as their faith was up and dawn .... This made the woman of Canaan so invincibly importunate; let Christ frown and chide, deny and rebuke her, she yet makes her approaches nearer and nearer, gathering arguments from His very denials, as if a soldier should shoot his enemy's bullets back upon him again; and Christ tells us what kept up her spirit undaunted — "O woman, great is thy faith."
