Day 3 – Prayer of Jabez

Want a bigger vision for your life

Day 3- I prayed the prayer 1 Chronicles 4:10“ Oh that you would wonderfully bless me and help me in my work, please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all evil and disaster!” And God granted him his request. (That is the wording from the Life Application Bible)

To be honest, I thought today God would bless me financially. It was an ordinary day. After having a headache all day yesterday, I woke up with a red eye. My students said I looked like I had zombie eyes. I told them I was getting ready for Halloween. They thought I was really cool.

I looked forward to getting the mail, because I was so sure when I prayed “God would you wonderfully bless me”, He would send me a big cheque. But there was no big cheque in the mail. I did,however, pay all my monthly bills.

I went to a financial education course in the evening. The knowledge I received will help me become a better steward of what God has given me.

When I got home, I spent some time just chilling’ with my two daughters. Life has been very busy this fall so we don’t get a lot of time to just enjoy each other. I would say I am wonderfully blessed but I feel God wants to show Himself in an even more powerful way.

How was your day? Have you joined me in praying this powerful prayer? Leave a comment below.
