Prayer for Exodus 1:5

“The total number of Jacob's descendants was 70; Joseph was already in Egypt.”

Heavenly Father, as I begin to understand Your amazing plan of salvation, which had to come through a perfect, sinless, kinsman-Redeemer, I begin to understand the incredible significance of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the nation of Israel – for through them was to travel God’s promised human SEED, Who was to be born as the holy, eternal Son of God – into the race which He Himself created. Thank You that the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us and thank You that He died to pay the price for the redemption of the whole world. Thank You that Jesus rose again to give us new life – and thank You that He is my Redeemer, Who dwells in heaven and lives eternally in my heart. I pray for the nation of Israel, that they will one day come to national repentance, and cry out to HIM, Who comes in name of the Lord.. for salvation. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
