Not Calling on the "God of Abraham," but on the "God of Jesus Christ"

"And he said, "O LORD, God of my master Abraham, I pray You, send me good speed this day, and show kindness to my master Abraham."

[Genesis 24:12]


The servant of Abraham made this prayer after making his camels kneel down. In his prayer, he began calling God by a new name that God would adopt for thousands of years afterwards. That new name, which Eliezer gave to the LORD God in this prayer, was,

"The God of Abraham"


Later it was increased into 

"The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob."


Abraham's servant prayed to God in the name of his master, Abraham. But Christians should rather pray in the name of their Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. We are not calling on the God of Abraham, not calling on the God of Elijah, nor on the God of Moses, not calling on the God of Israel; Rather we are calling on the God and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Yes, we call on the "LORD God of Jesus Christ and the Everlasting Father of all."


Abraham's Servant began the era of praying to God in the name of a man of God, after Noah had blessed the God of Shem [Genesis 9:26]. It was the God of Abraham that prepared and provided Rebekah for Isaac, and He became the God of Isaac too.


The Servant of Abraham acknowledged he had a master, and he acknowledged his master had a LORD and God over him. He could talk to the God of his master, Abraham, even without taking permission from his master before talking to the God of his master.


But he was also praying for his master while praying to the LORD God of his master. He asked God to show kindness to his master Abraham, whom God had blessed in all things. He knew God blessed his master Abraham in all things, but what remained was for God to show kindness (favor) to his master by helping his master's servant with good speed or success in finding a good wife.


He who finds a wife has found a good thing, and obtains favor (kindness) of God [Proverbs 18:22].


  • If you are praying to the LORD God of Abraham, and asking something from Him, show how what you want Him to do for you will benefit Abraham.


  • If you are praying to the Father God of Jesus Christ, and asking something from Him, show how what you want Him to do for you will benefit Jesus Christ. Amen.
