A Model Prayer by Isaac

Gen 32:9-12 = A prayer for a time of crisis
  1. He identifies God as his god & refers to his relationship with the Lord (v.9a)
  2. He refers to the circumstances that led to this current crisis (v.9b)
  3. He speaks to God with humility (v.10a)
  4. He speaks to God with gratitude for other blessings already received (v.10b)
  5. He makes his request very clearly known (v.11)
  6. He refers to God’s promise (v.12)
-- from a class with Dr. Duane Garrett, Professor of Old Testament, SBTS
