Praying in faith: Genesis 24:12-15

I just want to offer a quick note on the prayer of the servant in Gen 24:12-15. Before the servant finished praying, Rebekah appeared, and as the servant continued to watch Rebekah, he became more and more convinced that she was the answer to his prayer. The servant prayed in faith, and in the very next moment, he was trusting that God was at work. So often when I pray and begin to see circumstances change, I keep asking and seeking to make sure the “answer” I’m seeing is from God. How much better I would be if I prayed in faith, trusting that my next step. my next thought, the next change in my circumstances was being directed by God – simply because I asked him to do so.
