Have you read 1Chronicles lately? There are two verses that talk about Jabez, yet they are very powerful.
Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called him Jabez, saying “Because I bore him in pain.” 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.(NKJV)
What a very powerful prayer that we can learn from. Short but very specific and wide open so that God can bless him and enlarge his territory the way the Lord sees fit. I feel many times we pray little specific prayers, asking God to do one or two little things that we can see, not giving him an open heaven to bless us and give us more influence in our surroundings by enlarging our territory. I challenge you to pray this and see what the Lord will do through you and for you.
Blessings in the mighty name of Jesus.
