Prayer Settles Problems

Memory Verse

And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed” (Genesis 32:28).

Text: Genesis 32:24-30

Life is full of challenges and uncertainties. One common denominator is that everyone at one point in time will have a problem that needs solution. At cross roads in our lives, we must know whom to turn to for solutions. God is that solution provider. Someone said, “Nothing lies beyond the reach of prayer except that which lies outside the will of God.”
The story of Jacob in our text proves to us the possibilities of prayer. He was determined to change the status-quo. He wrestled with sincerity of purpose to get a desired change in his life. He was open-minded and did not cover up or lie in God’s presence as he did earlier to his father. Many people seek every other means to solve their problems except those of God. This has led to disappointments, frustrations and retrogression. However, prayer will change the narrative. Jacob, upon recognizing the opportunity to once again grasp his destiny, did so with persistence. Prayer is therefore very important in our day-to-day engagements as it is a guarantee for solving our problems.
