Prayer Of Jabez
1 Chronicles 4:9-10 (NIV)
9 Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, “I gave birth to him in pain.”
10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you wouldbless me and enlarge my territory!
Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.
Jabez sounds like the Hebrew for pain.
