Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request. 1 Chronicles 4:10
Father God, Oh that you would bless me and my sisters that are reading my post. Each one of them desires your blessings today. Lord, Jabez prayed that his territory would be enlarged. For my sisters that are barely making ends meet, I pray for abundance. Lord, for the woman that needs a job that you would provide the right job. Lord, for the woman that is contemplating returning to school, make this choice evident to her. Lord God I pray there is so much violence in our world and it seems to touch us. I ask for protection and that you keep us from harm. Lord so many of us suffer from pain. I understand pain and for those with physical pain give us endurance to run the race of functioning with pain. God for those with emotional pain open your word and give hope to the hopeless, peace to those who are struggling, and joy to those who are sad. In Jesus’ name Amen.
Beloved, the end of the verse. and God granted his request. Love God Greatly just started a study on prayer at http://www.lovegodgreatly.com
