“Therefore, return the man’s wife — as a spokesman he will intercede for you — that your life may be saved. If you do not return her, you can be sure that you and all who are yours will certainly die.” —Genesis 20:7

Abraham again passed Sarah off as his sister rather than his wife (see 12:10ff). When Abimelech took her as his own wife, he became sick and his wife and maidservants barren. Therefore, he returned Sarah to Abraham. The Lord takes care of His people.

Prayer: Lord, may I trust You to protect me rather than trust in my own efforts.
Promise: “Abraham then interceded with God, and God restored health to Abimelech, that is, to his wife and his maidservants, so that they could bear children” —20:17
