In Your Heart – Genesis 24:45

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Genesis 24:45
“Before I finished praying in my heart, Rebekah came out, with her jar on her shoulder. She went down to the spring and drew water, and I said to her, “Please give me a drink.”

I can’t tell you how many times in all of my life that I heard the phrase “If you want your prayers heard, you have to pray it out loud.” Well, here is a verse that kind of proves that theory wrong. It should at least make us question it.

This is the servant of Abraham talking here in this verse describing what happened when he was looking for a wife for Isaac. He didn’t even finish saying his prayer and the answer to that prayer was right in front of him. How often does that happen? There is little doubt that this was obviously all being orchestrated by the Father from the start. We should actually pray that the Father orchestrates our days just the same. However, let us never under estimate the power of prayer. Even if it’s being said in our heart.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
