Several years ago, there was a popular devotional book out called The Prayer of Jabez. First Chronicles Chapter 4 is where this amazing story is found. The name – Jabez – actually means “pain.” But it was the farthest thing away that Jabez wanted in his life; for him or anyone he met. The whole point of the prayer was that he got right to the blessing of how he wanted God to pour out into his life. That is the same type of prayer we need to be lifting up to God so our own life can be a blessing to everyone we come in contact with too.
