A servant’s prayer

The aging Abraham must have completely trusted his eldest servant to send the man on such a long journey and important mission: To travel to Abraham and Sarah’s homeland to get a wife for their son Isaac. Genesis 24:12 – a prayer of Abraham’s servant from the King James Version of the Bible and the Book of KJV prayers "And he said O Lord God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send me good speed this day, and shew kindness unto my master Abraham." Genesis 24:12 prayer paraphrased from the Book of Bible Prayers   "Oh, Lord God of my master, please grant me success today and show Your steadfast love!" Today, the Lord Himself is our Master! So we can be sure of His positive response to us as we pray this servant’s prayer and go about, doing God’s will. Mary Harwell Sayler , ©2019 …
