Abraham’s Intervention for King Abimelech
God told King Abimelech, after he had taken Abraham’s wife Sarah for himself, that Abraham would pray for him and he would live. King Abimelech was at the mercy of Abraham.
“And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her. Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.” (Genesis 20:6-7)
