    When I was 18 I had had scoliosis for 2 yrs. I am 75 now. At 18 my left hip was 4 in. higher than my right; my spine was a backward 'S'. In June of '60 the Lord healed me, but I didn't know it was Him for 10 yrs. In '60 I had 'heard' there was a God; that was about it. I 'learned' that much in a mainstream church. So, Jesus does heal without OUR prayers, but I KNOW someone was praying for me.

    Insight777: This is just to help you understand the right meaning of Matthew15:26NIV. "It's not right to take the childrens bread and toss it to their dogs."CHILDREN meansJews. BREAD means the word of God. DOGS means.Gentiles."We" were/are considered unclean to Jews..Jesus wasn't calling her a dog,being mean.He talked to her in a way she could understand.With her answer he was moved,and so healed.

    Im just trying to help you understand the right meaning of Matthew15:26 NIV "It is not right to take the childrens(Jews) bread (Word of God)and toss it to their dogs." (Gentiles) 24:" I have only been sent to the lost sheep of Israel." He was trying to save HIS "lost sheep" first. When the woman gave her reply,jesus found favor in her and healed her daughter. God is good.
