Isaac entreated Yahweh for his wife, because she was barren. Yahweh was entreated by him, and Rebekah his wife conceived. Genesis 25:21 WEB
Rebekah was barren and could not have children, but when her husband Isaac prayed for her, she became pregnant with twins. If you read the details, Isaac was forty years old when they got married, and he was sixty when the twins were actually born.
I doubt that Isaac waited twenty years to pray for his wife. My guess is that Isaac prayed for her and then waited, just as his father Abraham had to. Isaac was a miracle baby himself, and Abraham and Sarah waited a long time for his birth.
Twenty years is a long time to wait, and I am sure that Isaac and Rebekah had both about given up on this ever happening, and probably forgotten even praying the prayer. But God had not, and in due time, it came to pass.
Whatever you are struggling with, pray about it. There is nothing wrong with doctors, but do not neglect the examples provided for us in the Bible. 'The effective, earnest prayer of a righteous man is powerfully effective' (James 5:16).
The impossible is possible with God. The past is not a picture of your future. Signs 'follow' those that believe, and they do not come in advance. Pray, believe, and experience.Prayer: Heavenly Father You know my needs before I ask, but there are a few things that I want to share with You because You told us to pray. (Tell Him what is on your heart). Thank You for hearing me today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
