As for Ishmael, I have given ear to your prayer: truly I have given him my blessing and I will make him fertile and give him great increase; he will be the father of twelve chiefs, and I will make him a great nation.

God Blesses Our Children

Gen 17:20 And as for Ishmael, I’ve heard you. I’ll bless him, and he’ll have many descendants. I will multiply him greatly, he’ll father twelve tribal leaders, and I’ll cause his descendants to become a great nation.
(ISV)

Thank You LORD, for hearing our pleas about our children.
Even when they are not constantly aware of your presence.1)Gen 17:18 So Abraham responded to God, “If only Ishmael would live in constant awareness that you’re always with him!”
Gen 17:19 But God replied, “No, but your wife Sarah will give birth to your son, and you are to name him Isaac. I’ll confirm my covenant with him as an eternal covenant for his descendants.
(ISV)

Thank you for your blessing, Father God.

I Thank You Lord, El-Shaddai,
Father God, You Who Are Almighty All Within Yourself,
Father God, You Who Are Sufficient All Within Yourself,
I Thank You For Giving My Children Everything They Need To Fulfill Their Destiny.
I Thank You In Jesus Name, Amen.
