The Prayer of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10 雅比斯的祷告

The Prayer of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10 is the inspiration for a book and 2 worship songs.

Were you told that prayers should not be selfish? That it should not be indulgent?

I was. It seems like to pray for our own wants and desires is not acceptable to God. But Jabez’s prayer seems pretty selfish to me. And God granted him what he requested.

10 Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my border! May your hand be with me, and may you keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!”

God granted him that which he requested.

I know such prayers should not be the only type of prayer we pray. In fact, prayer is conversation with God, it goes beyond requests. But it has encouraged me to bring my heart’s desires to Abba God without shame.

Prayer of Jabez The Book

This little prayer was brought to the fore by a little book called The Prayer of Jabez: Breaking Through to The Blessed Life (affiliate link) written by Bruce Wilkinson.

It is not a long book. But God likes to use the small to conquer the world. It was published in 2001 and although 18 years old, it is still in print.

祈愿您赐福与我 扩张我的境界 也常与我同在
保佑我不遭患难 不受艰苦 将我隐藏在您心怀 




因您本为善 您的慈爱永远长存
我要尊崇您万王之王 因您的恩惠

Song of Jabez by Paul Baloche

Lord that You would bless me indeed 
And enlarge my territory 
That Your hand would be with me 
That You would keep my heart from evil 

Bless me Lord 
Bless me Lord 
So that I might be A blessing to this world
