Prayer for Matthew 15:24

“He replied, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."”

Praying through Matthew 15:24

Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful compassion that Jesus showed to this Samaritan woman who came to understand that the Jewish Messiah was the Lord Jesus, the perfect son of David, and eternal Son of the most high God. Thank You that He is my Saviour too. Thank You that by grace through faith in Him, I have received forgiveness of sin and life everlasting. It is wonderful to realise that the whole Law was fulfilled when Jesus died as Israel’s perfect Passover Lamb and my precious Sin-Sacrifice. As I trace the wonderful plan of redemption from Adam’s sin, through Israel’s history, to the birth of Jesus - His sinless life, His sacrificial death, His glorious Resurrection, and Ascension into heaven, I am filled with awe and wonder that You loved the world so much that You gave Your only begotten Son to die in my place. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
