Prayer of Jabez



On the Monday, June 7 podcast, Fr. Michael shared a beautiful reflection on the Prayer of Jabez. Below is the scripture reference, along with the prayer.


The Prayer of Jabez

1 Chronicles 4: verses 9 & 10


Jabez was the most distinguished of his brothers. His mother had

named him Jabez, saying, “I bore him with pain.”


Jabez prayed to the God of Israel:


“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!”

And God granted him his prayer request.
