1 Chronicles 4:9-10  "Prayer of Jabez"

This short prayer of a man we know nothing about is very interesting.  We see in this prayer four requests that would make Jabez's life the very best at serving God.  His prayer is not selfish as some say.  These requests were not to be used for Jabez, but used so that God's kingdom would be enlarged.  Jabez wanted from God the ability to serve Him better.  We all need to be praying such a prayer.  Let this prayer encourage you to pray for what will help you be a more effective Christian.
