This Week’s Verses
Acts 7:8 ESV
And he gave him the covenant of circumcision. And so Abraham became the father of Isaac, and circumcised him on the eighth day, and Isaac became the father of Jacob, and Jacob of the twelve patriarchs.
1 Chronicles 16:13-18 ESV 
O offspring of Israel his servant, children of Jacob, his chosen ones! He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in all the earth. Remember his covenant forever, the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations, the covenant that he made with Abraham, his sworn promise to Isaac, which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant, 

This Week’s Prayer
Father, thank You for Your love for us. Thank You for the examples of faith, even with human weakness. Thank You that You remain faithful to Your promises and cause Your plan to come to pass. Jesus, thank You that by Your blood we have become children of Abraham, recipients of the blessings of God. Holy Spirit, teach us to pray without ceasing; to wrestle with God with the faith of Jacob and Paul. God, may our lives glorify You and demonstrate to those around us that You are mighty, gracious, loving and faithful.

For next week look at: Exodus 3:10-22
