Then he prayed, “Lord, God of my master Abraham, make me successful today….(Genesis 24 v 12)
How many time have you prayed this prayer?
We seldom know ahead of time the full significance of what we do or don’t do in our lives. The Bible simply says, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…” (Ecclesiastes 9 v 10)
Do you ever pray and ask God to make your work successful?
People sometimes wonder if it is ok to pray prayers like this. Now, if success is becoming your God, you have to find a way to dethrone it. But generally speaking, if you can’t pray for the success of what your are doing, you should start doing something else!
Any good parent wants their child to succeed. Any wise employer wants their workers to succeed, because when they succeed the company succeeds. Here is what God told His people, “Carefully follow the terms of this covenant, so you may prosper in everything you do” (Deuteronomy 29 v 9)
God wants us to succeed in building His Kingdom and doing His will on earth. As you seek to follow Him make your prayer today, a prayer to succeed.
Have a great day
