"Jacob invoked God. He acknowledged his own failing. He asked for God’s intervention based on the promise God had given him."

This is similar to how Abraham responded when God asked him to sacrifice Isaac.

It also contrasts markedly with Abraham's attempts to interfere, presumably on Lot's behalf. The diffence being that Jacob's approach is honest.

Given Jacob's history of manipulating Laban, Isaac, and Esau, his prayer really seems to stand out.
