Jabez’ Prayer For My Life

Old Testament Bible reference 1 Chronicles 4:9-10

Two short verses in the Old Testament are packed with big meaning. They’re kind of hidden away. A decade or so ago they became famous when someone wrote an entire book about them and people began praying them for their own lives. I prayed them too. God blessed our young family with an extra $1000 that year.

Currently, as of yesterday, I need new transportation! My car had radiator issues and will cost more money than it’s worth to repair. I pray these words already thanking God for His goodness toward me. I’m trusting Him. Besides He created everything anyway. He owns cattle on a 1000 hills and more! The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.  Thank you God for providing me with this tiny insignificant need when compared to how you care for everything already. I boldly trust in your provision.

1 Chronicles 4:9-10

9 And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.

10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
