Wrestling with God in Prayer

“[Jacob’s prayer] is prayer for forgiveness of sin and the removal of divine displeasure on account of sin that we here find illustrated. And in consonance with this the blessing craved and received was the bless­ing of pardon and a re­turn to normal relations with God. The event taught Jacob that inheri­tance of the promises can rest on forgiveness of sin and a purified con­science only.” (Geer­hardus Vos, Biblical Theology, pp. 113-114).

Wednesday evening’s Bible study and prayer time at Trinity Presbyterian Church, OPC, starts at 7:00 p.m. Genesis 32:22-32 is among the passages we hope to learn from.
