“Indeed, I have singled him out that he may direct his sons and his posterity to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just, so that the Lord may carry into effect for Abraham the promises He made about him.” —Genesis 18:19
Abraham found it difficult to believe that he was to be the father of a great nation. He may have believed that God had the power to give a child to a couple nearly a hundred years old but may have doubted he was important enough for God to work this miracle for him. However, the Lord considered Abraham so special that He visited him personally and, through his intercession, would have spared the wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Prayer: Father, may I believe that I am Your child and therefore have power to change nations through my intercessory prayer.
Promise: “Is anything too marvelous for the Lord to do?” —18:14
