"Then Jacob prayed, 'O God of my grandfather Abraham, and God of my father, Isaac—O LORD, you told me, "Return to your own land and to your relatives." And you promised me, "I will treat you kindly." I am not worthy of all the unfailing love and faithfulness you have shown to me, your servant. When I left home and crossed the Jordan River, I owned nothing except a walking stick. Now my household fills two large camps! O LORD, please rescue me from the hand of my brother, Esau. I am afraid that he is coming to attack me, along with my wives and children. But you promised me, "I will surely treat you kindly, and I will multiply your descendants until they become as numerous as the sands along the seashore—too many to count."'"
Jacob is worried, but he goes to God with his fear. He reminds himself and God that God is the one who told him to return to his land and that God promised to treat Jacob kindly and to multiply his descendants. He acknowledges that God is the one who made him wealthy. He knows God has been faithful and loving, though he is undeserving. Here is a model prayer: express your feelings, but focus on God and his promises and faithfulness, not your circumstances.
