Abraham's descendants continue to speak to God, asking for protection--and giving thanks for it.
Psalm 138 gives us words for please prayers and for thank you ones.
On the day I called, you answered me....
Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve me against the wrath of my enemies;
you stretch out your hand,
and your right hand delivers me.
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me;
your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
Do not forsake the work of your hands.
