The Prayer of Jacob
Gen 32: 9 – 12
9 Then Jacob said, “O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, the
LORD who said to me, ‘Return to your country and to your family, and I will deal
well with you’: 10 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies and of all the
truth which You have shown Your servant; for I crossed over this Jordan with my
staff, and now I have become two companies. 11 Deliver me, I pray, from the
hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau; for I fear him, lest he come and
attack me and the mother with the children. 12 For You said, ‘I will surely treat
you well, and make your descendants as the sand of the sea, which cannot be
numbered for multitude.’”
