We offer up the Prayer of Jabez to you. We see this buried in the midst of the lineage of the Tribe of Judah. He is one of us! One of those who praise the Name of the LORD because You are worthy to be praised!
“Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bore him in pain. And Jabez CALLED on the God of Israel saying:
“Oh, that You would bless me indeed” ...
Bless my goings and my comings.
Bless me in the field and in the city.
Bless the work of my hands.
Bless my children and their children.
Bless my city, my community amd my church.
“and enlarge my territory” ...
Enlarge our borders and our boundaries.
Enlarge our reach.
Enlarge our tents.
Enlarge our hope, faith and love.
“that Your hand would be with me” ...
That you would lead and guide us.
That you would keep us from falling.
“and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” ...
Keep our hearts and our minds centered on you O Holy LORD. Let the words of our mouths and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable in your sight!
“So God granted him what he requested.”
I Chronicles 4:9-10
O Gracious LORD. You are our God. You are the only God. There is none beside you. We call upon you. Hear our requests over America and the Nations. Grant us our petitions and give us peace!
In Jesus name. Amen and amen.
