Prayer of Jabez
Jabez wants to succeed and increase his sphere of influence for God. What is important is that when we want to reach for goals and accomplishments that we have God on our side. Proverbs 16:3 says, "Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established."
It is critical to understand and practice this in a close relationship with God. Further, it is equally important to stay close to God and rely on His continued support and guidance throughout life. Jabez clearly knows and prays specifically to the One who can protect him from evil and pain -- God. At the end of the verse it is clear that God approved of this faithful prayer by granting it. It is also important to see that Jabez was passionate in his plea to God: "He cried out to the God of Israel." God wants to hear that we need Him through passionate prayer.
1. “bless me indeed”
2. “Enlarge my territory”
3. “Your hand would be with me
4 “keep me from evil,so that I may not cause pain!”
Recite the Jabez prayer every morning and keep a record of the changes that occur.
The power, is not in the prayer itself, but "rather, the power is in what you believe will happen as a result of the prayer, and the action you take.
