Genesis 24:42-51

42 “So I came today to the spring, and said, `O LORD, the God of my master Abraham, if now You will make my journey on which I go successful; 43 behold, I am standing by the spring, and may it be that the maiden who comes out to draw, and to whom I say, “Please let me drink a little water from your jar”; 44 and she will say to me, “You drink, and I will draw for your camels also”; let her be the woman whom the LORD has appointed for my master’s son.’

45 “Before I had finished speaking in my heart, behold, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder, and went down to the spring and drew, and I said to her, `Please let me drink.’ 46 “She quickly lowered her jar from hershoulder, and said, `Drink, and I will water your camels also’; so I drank, and she watered the camels also. 47“Then I asked her, and said, `Whose daughter are you?’ And she said, `The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor’s son, whom Milcah bore to him’; and I put the ring on her nose, and the bracelets on her wrists. 48 “And I bowed low and worshiped the LORD, and blessed the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who had guided me in the right way to take the daughter of my master’s kinsman for his son. 49 “So now if you are going to 1deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me; and if not, let me know, that I may turn to the right hand or the left.”

50 Then Laban and Bethuel replied, “The matter comes from the LORD; so we cannot speak to you bad or good.51 “Here is Rebekah before you, take her and go, and let her be the wife of your master’s son, as the LORD has spoken.”

Here’s another amazing part about God’s answer to the servants prayer. “Before I had finished speaking in my heart…” That may have been an exaggeration, but it shows how quickly God answered his prayer. It doesn’t always happen that way, but when you have placed yourself in God’s will, and are praying accordingly, things happen, and quickly.
