Prayer of Jabez

“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 NIV

“Oh, that you would bless me.” 
Ask God for His blessing. Recognize your need for His provision, and set your heart toward wanting more than you need so that you can be a blessing to others.

“Enlarge my territory.” 
Pray for more influence. Knowing that God can make a way, trust in Him to open doors and lead you on the best path for your life and for His glory.

“Let your hand be with me.” 
In humility, acknowledge your need for God’s presence. Depend on Him, and ask for more of Him in your life today.

“Keep me from harm.”
Trust God to protect you. Tell Him specific areas where you feel the need for His protection, and ask Him to cover areas that you can’t yet see.
