So Jesus went with them. But just before they arrived at the house, the officer sent some friends to say, “Lord, don’t trouble yourself by coming to my home, for I am not worthy of such an honor. I am not even worthy to come and meet you. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed. I know this because I am under the authority of my superior officers, and I have authority over my soldiers. I only need to say, ‘Go,’ and they go, or ‘Come,’ and they come. And if I say to my slaves, ‘Do this,’ they do it.”
The Roman solider, despite earning many accolades in the military, says that he is not worthy of the presence of Jesus. It took a lot of humility to ask for help and then say he was not worthy. The world had built him up to be prideful, but he humbled himself before God and asked for help. He has faith in the power of Jesus and how it can help.
You can come to God in humility, praying for healing and for help in the way that only He can.
