The Prayer of Jabez

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
Oh that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your hand would be with me,
and that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain!"
So God Granted him what he requested.

1 Chronicles 4:10

This has been on my desk for a while. I prayed this daily for a while, but have kind of forgotten the meaning of the prayer. I think I'm gonna start meditating on this.
Sorry, for such a short post, I haven't had much "free time" today and I'd like to get my daily Bible Reading done before I go to sleep....mmm...sleep.

***

Lord, Bless me-a lot! Take me places I've never been. Guide me to Your will and wipe the evil one out of my path. Use me to bring healing to others.

Amen.

that prayer was so awesome when I first heard about it. people liked to bag on it for a variety of reasons, but I think it was life changing for me. I need to be doing the same.
