It is the custom of the Jews when praying, to refer to the “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our forefathers” in their daily prayers and in the Scriptures. More than a repetitive formula, the phrase forms an important literary motif in the Scriptures. A motif provides unity to a given context, but in other cases it may reflect a dominant theme, often one that is well known and thus point to an earlier event. “The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” forms just such a motif.

This motif is important in relation to God’s covenant with Israel. Praying with this motif, reminds all the long-lasting covenant God has with the Jewish nation. Who were these men that should be included in this motif?

Abraham, was the founding father of the nation of Israel, a man of great faith and obedience to the will of God. His name in Hebrew means "father of a multitude." The Lord changed his name to Abraham as a symbol of the covenant promise to multiply his descendants into a great nation that God would call his own. Prior to this, God had already visited Abraham when he was 75, promising to bless him and make his offspring into an abundant nation of people. All Abraham had to do was obey God and do what God told him to do.

Isaac was a miracle child, born to Abraham and Sarah in their old age as the fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham to make his descendants a great nation. It seemed impossible because Sarah was 90 years old and Abraham was 100! Sarah, who was eavesdropping, laughed at the prophecy, but God heard her.

Jacob was one of the great patriarchs of the Old Testament, but at times he was also a schemer, liar, and manipulator. The blessings continued through Jacob's father, Isaac, then to Jacob and his descendants. Jacob's sons became leaders of the 12 tribes of Israel. The younger of twins, Jacob was born holding on to his brother Esau's heel. His name means "he grasps the heel" or "he deceives." Jacob lived up to his name. He and his mother Rebekah cheated Esau out of his birthright and blessing.
