Food For the Nations

From out of the blue, incongruously buried within a long list of biblical genealogies, this prayer of Jabez can be found. ( 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 )

This is a prayer for self; but it can also work for any one, and for any or all nations.

“Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, "I gave birth to him in pain." Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh, that you would bless 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.” ( 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 )

Jabez Prayer Warriors pray for a day when all the nations of this world might join hands together to pray and receive God’s blessings, enlargements of their territories, God’s guidance, and protection from harm so that they will be free from pain.
