Then he said, “O Lord God of my master Abraham, please give me success [qarah] this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham.”
Would you like to know how you can pray for and experience God’s divine positioning for good success?
In Genesis 24, we read about how Abraham sent his servant to look for a bride for Isaac, his son. The servant arrived at a well outside the city of Nahor in the evening and decided to stop there. There were so many young women gathered to draw water there that he did not know who would be the right woman for Isaac. So he prayed this prayer: “O Lord God of my master Abraham, please give me success this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham.”
The word “success” here is the Hebrew word qarah. And with the Lord’s qarah or positioning for right happenings, the servant found a beautiful, virtuous woman named Rebekah, who became Isaac’s bride.
Beloved, we need the Lord to give us qarah every day. So I encourage you to pray the prayer of that servant every day. Tell the Lord, “I’m looking to You, Lord Jesus, to give me success—qarah—this day,” and depend on His unmerited favor to cause you to be at the right place at the right time. He will cause your paths to cross with that of the right people who will be a blessing to you and to whom you can be a blessing!
