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) 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 I just have to ask why does everyone have an issue with this prayer. I know me personally I pray this prayer every morning in my personal time and time and time again the Lord has come through. Its not all about prosperity as some people think it is involving so much more than that. So in a Christian way what do these words mean to you?
