Making the Prayer of Jabez Personal
Call Upon the God of IsraelOh God, you are the Holy one of Israel. You are powerful and mighty and have called us to be set apart - holy for You. Your Holiness not only stretches over evil but also leads us in knowledge, justice, mercy, goodness and love. Lord, your commands reveal your character and we praise you today and ask that you cleanse us and remake us into the image o your Son through the power of your Spirit.
That You Would Bless MeDear God, Thank you for your great love and blessing over our lives. Thank you that your favor has no end, but it lasts for our entire lifetime. Forgive us for sometimes forgetting that you are intimately acquainted with all of our ways, that you know what concerns us, and you cover us, as with a shield. We ask for your guidance so that we might walk fully in your blessing and goodness today.
We ask that your face would shine on us. That you would open the right doors for our lives and for our loved ones, that you would close the wrong doors and protect us from those we need to walk away from. Establish the work of our hands and bring to fulfillment all that you have given us to do in these days. We pray that you would make our way purposeful and our footsteps firm out of your goodness and love. Give us a heart of wisdom to hear your voice, and make us strong by your huge favor and grace. In Jesus' name, Amen.
