Praying Though God’s Word
1 Chronicles 3:1-4:23
“Jabez called upon the God of Israel, ‘Oh that You would bless me …’ And God granted his request” (1 Chronicles 4:10). Help us, Lord, when we ask for Your blessing, to pray for your mercy – “Have mercy on me, O God, a sinner” (Luke 18:13). Help us to make Your blessing the most important thing in our life. What’s the point of having plenty of friends, if we fall out with You? “Oh that you would bless me” – May this be our heartfelt prayer.
