Bible: Gen 32:9-12

32:9 Then Jacob prayed, 1  “O God of my father Abraham, God of my father Isaac, O Lord, you said 2  to me, ‘Return to your land and to your relatives and I will make you prosper.’ 3  32:10 I am not worthy of all the faithful love 4  you have shown 5  your servant. With only my walking stick 6  I crossed the Jordan, 7  but now I have become two camps. 32:11 Rescue me, 8  I pray, from the hand 9  of my brother Esau, 10  for I am afraid he will come 11  and attack me, as well as the mothers with their children. 12  32:12 But you 13  said, ‘I will certainly make you prosper 14  and will make 15  your descendants like the sand on the seashore, too numerous to count.’ 16
