Day 6 – Prayer of Jabez

Want a bigger vision for your life

Day 6 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)

It was a fairly uneventful day. My eyes are almost better. I worked on the household budget and did some rearranging in the basement. Both girls were home for supper and we spent some family time carving a jack-o-lantern.

I connected with a few special people through text. A very ordinary day at home. And best of all I got to miss out on the chaos of Halloween at school.

I thought after six days of praying for blessing this would get easier. But asking for God to bless me still seems unnatural and I am still not sure what I am looking for. I do, however, feel a shift in my heart towards those I would have previously judged.

These words struck a chord in my heart this week. True compassion demands action. Am I ready to pay the price for caring?
