The Prayer of Jabez is a brief prayer found in the Old Testament of the Bible, in the book of 1 Chronicles. Here are the words to the prayer:
“And 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 prayer is often interpreted as a plea for God’s blessing and protection, and has been popularized in recent years by a book titled “The Prayer of Jabez” by Bruce Wilkinson. The prayer is seen by many Christians as a reminder of the importance of faith and seeking God’s guidance and protection in all areas of life.
