Praying with Paul: 'Abraham's Faith'

Tuesday, September 24, 2024

Hebrews 11:8-19

Holy Father, in whom all faith is safe,

I cannot imagine what it would be like to be asked to do what you asked Abraham to do. He was willing to sacrifice the very son you had promised to him, the son through whom you promised to make a great nation. He believed that you could do what he had never seen done before-raise someone from the dead.

May I stay so close to you that I will never doubt your instructions to me. Like Abraham, I want to be willing to follow you to unknown parts of the earth. Like Abraham, I want to trust you when you ask me to do difficult things.

Abraham believed you and you counted it to him as righteousness. May my faith be counted to me as righteousness as well.

In the name of Jesus I ask. Amen.
