The Prayer of Jabez- Conclusion

"...and God granted him what he requested."

We have come to the end of our series on the prayer of Jabez, and how fitting that this phrase is the end of the verse. We see that God honored the requests for blessing, increase, protection, and limited pain. (If you are new to the blog, check out the past 6 posts on the Prayer of Jabez- see the labels on the side bar or check out the Link Within boxes at the bottom of this post.)

We have been praying this prayer over here in our little corner of the world, and we have seen God provide, bless, and protect. Do you remember how we began this series by talking about personalizing this verse? Well, this is how I end this prayer during my prayer time. "And God granted her (Suzette) what she requested." And He has. He has been faithful.

I hope that you have been praying Jabez's prayer along with us. As you see God's blessings pour out on you and your family, be sure to keep track of them. I noticed that for us, as we began praying this verse, we became more aware of the blessings that God was giving us. As the blessings, increase, and protection come your way, be sure to make your children aware of them. Nothing is more faith building for a child to see than that the God that they serve did not only work in the pages of the Bible, but He also is at work in their lives as well. Even if your children are small (like our Addie), talking to them now about God's Hand at work in their lives will make a huge impact as they grow.

May the Lord continue to bless you.
