Prayer and God’s providence!

Scripture reading for January 10th:  Genesis 23-27

Key Scriptures:  Genesis 24:12-15  “Then he prayed, “O Lord, God of my master Abraham, give me success today, and show kindness to my master Abraham.  See, I am standing beside this spring, and the daughters of the townspeople are coming out to draw water.  May it be that when I say to a girl, ‘Please let down your jar that I any have a drink,’ and she says, “Drink, and I’ll water your camels too’–let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac.  By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my master.”  Before he had finished praying, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder.”

God hears and answers prayer.  Abraham was getting old and Isaac, his son needed a wife.  Abraham sent his chief servant on a mission to find a wife from among his own kinsmen.  The servant prayed for God’s guidance and favor.  God answered before he could finish the prayer!

Cultivating thankfulness:  Believers give thanks for all things and know that God hears and answers prayer!  “For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”  (Matthew 7:8)
