In 2 Kings 4:17-37 we find a Shunammite woman who the Bible says built a room onto her and her husband’s home for Elisha and his servant, Gehazi to use when they would come into their town. Elisha tells the woman that she will have a son, and she did. The boy grew and one day while with his father in the field he said, “My head! My head!” The father told a servant to carry him back to his mother. The boy sat on his mother’s lap until noon and then he died. She took her now dead son and carried him up to the room that she had built for Elisha to have when he came to town to minister to the people and laid him on the bed.
Immediately after doing this, The Word tells us, “She called her husband and said, “Please send me one of the servants and a donkey so I can go to the man of God quickly and return.” 23 “Why go to him today?” he asked. “It’s not the New Moon or the Sabbath.” “IT’S ALL RIGHT,” she said. 24 She saddled the donkey and said to her servant, “Lead on; don’t slow down for me unless I tell you.” 25 So she set out and came to the man of God at Mount Carmel. When he saw her in the distance, the man of God said to his servant Gehazi, “Look! There’s the Shunammite! 26 Run to meet her and ask her, ‘Are you all right? Is your husband all right? Is your child all right?’” “EVERYTHING IS ALL RIGHT,” she said. (Verses 22-26)
