Moments In Time
"Then Jacob prayed, “O God of my father Abraham, God of my father Isaac, LORD, you who said to me, ‘Go back to your country and your relatives, and I will make you prosper,’ I am unworthy of all the kindness and faithfulness you have shown your servant. I had only my staff when I crossed this Jordan, but now I have become two camps. Save me, I pray, from the hand of my brother Esau, for I am afraid he will come and attack me, and also the mothers with their children. But you have said, ‘I will surely make you prosper and will make your descendants like the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted.’” Genesis 32:9-12
When Jacob prayed this prayer to God First Jacob acknowledged God for Who He is. Then Jacob reminded God of what He has spoken and promised Jacob. He acknowledged that in himself he was not worthy of God's good but God gave it to him. Now Jacob needs God to help him and keep His promise to Him so Jacob asks and God answers, because GOD ANSWERS PRAYER.
