Jabez

1 Chronicles 4:9-10
9And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. 10And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
This is interesting as we read the word of God. I thought 1st Chronicles were boring with all the names and all the begat after begat.

Jabez was noted here for his prayer! Here, he asked God to
1.Bless him
2.Help in his work by expanding his land
3.Be with him in all that he did
4.Keep him from evil and disaster

The Life Application Bible commented that we should pray likewise to God to guard us. This reminds me of Jesus praying for Peter. Oh what a wonderful Saviour that we have. All praise and glory be to Christ our Lord.
