How to get your prayer request answered by not giving up

In the whole of the New Testament, there is hardly a story that is as amazing as the story of the Syrophenecian woman in Mark chapter 7. It tells us why we should never give up on our prayer request.

Energized by the Word

The Bible lets us know that the Gospel of Christ (the Word of God), is the power of God. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 1 Cor 1:18 In other words, the power, or the energy of God is communicated to our spirits when we listen to, or hear the Word of God.

Could it be that these verses are trying to basically communicate the same event or process to us? When we have less faith, we might know the right things to ... »
