Powerful Prayers: Seeking God’s Blessing (Jabez)

We are continuing our “Powerful Prayers” sermon series by looking at the prayer of Jabez found in 1st Chronicles 4:9&10. Jabez boldly asks God for four main things: (1) blessings, (2) enlarged borders, (3) having God’s mighty hand upon him, (4) keep him from harm and pain. God graciously grants Jabez all that he requested. However, that does not mean God did it in the exact way Jabez envisioned or in the timing he hoped. The Jabez prayer is no promise or magic formula that God will do what we ask and when we ask it. Ephesians 3:20 says “God is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we could ever ask or think, according to His power.” Let’s remember though, it’s on God’s terms, not ours.

We invite you to listen to this message on the prayer of Jabez.
