Praying the Prayer

Praying is very personal.  I would not begin to advise anyone how to pray, but before we discuss Jabez’s Prayer  any further, I would like to share with you how I pray the prayer.

I pray my version of Jabez’s Prayer after I pray my regular prayer.  This is what I say:

Dear God and Blessed Jesus, please hear my prayer.  I pray that you will bless me and my family and friends indeed, I pray that you will enlarge my territory and give me the strength and wisdom and knowledge and everything I need to handle it. I pray you will keep your hand upon me, I pray you will keep evil away from me and I pray that you will let me cause no pain.  I ask these things in Jesus’ blessed and precious name.   Amen

In future posts I will let you know why I add the cause no pain portion to my prayer.

Right now, I pray that God will bless you and your family and friends indeed. Amen
