The Prayer of Jabez

1Chronicles 4:10 "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."

Jabez prayed that God's hand would be on him and protect him from harm. It is not simply missionaries who need God's hand of protection, but also moms who pack lunches and send their kids to school, and dads who face the hostility of a dog-cat-world.

Asking God to keep His strong hand upon our lives and to help us confronts our giants is neither selfish nor wrong. It is only a reminder that we are God's children, which is our privileged to ask our Father who promised to never leave nor forsake us. Prayer is also our communication with God, it brings us into harmony with what God wants in our lives.
