Youths, Pray Like Jabez

Key Verse

“And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted Him that which he requested” (1Chronicle 4:10).

Text — 1 Chronicles 4:9,10


The importance of prayer in the life of Christian Youth is incontestable, as the Lord Jesus Christ Himself in His earthly ministry gave a classical parable on the persistent widow saying, “that men ought always to pray, and not to faint” (Luke 18:1). Persistent prayer can transform the lives and situations of the children of God. It provides a positive transmission link between humans and the Almighty God. Speaking through Apostle Paul, the Holy Spirit commands all Christians to “Pray without ceasing” (1Thessalonias 5:17). Jabez, after realizing his challenges arising from the circumstance of his birth, prayed in the right direction and God granted his petitions.

The recognition of the omnipotence of God and acknowledgement of His capacity to “to supply all our needs according to His riches in glory” (Philippians 4:19), makes it necessary for us to pray like Jabez.  Acting and praying like Jabez is the most appropriate thing to do when you have problems beyond human solution.  Pray like Jabez and victory is sure. Divine assurance of answers to prayers remains the portion of every child of God. There is no impossibility with God.


Pray like Jabez and victory is sure


Bring your challenges before God for solution.
