Day 14 Prayer of Jabez

Want a bigger vision for your life

Day 14 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 has been a busy week. One of my colleagues is going through a crisis in her family. The stress of her absence as well as the empathy stress is felt throughout the school building.

My mom injured her back. Each of her children deal with the reality in their own way. Comfortable relationships become stretched and strained relationships beg for forgiveness and grace.

My college daughter carries her stress of assignment deadlines. Everyone in the house feels her pain. Even the housetrained dogs, return to their puppy ways.

My other daughter carries the stress of high school and working in the evenings. She has a nagging cough that won’t go away.

Reality of this journey can become overwhelming very quickly.

Romans 8:26 And in the same way—by our faith-the Holy Spirit helps us with our daily problems and in our praying. For we don’t even know what we should pray for nor how to pray as we should, but the Holy Spirit prays for us with such feeling that it cannot be expressed in words.

When I don’t know the right words to pray, I am blessed to know that Christ’s Spirit which dwells in me intercedes on my behalf.

God blesses me so that I can take care of my body, His temple,so the Spirit can live in me and change ordinary into extraordinary.
