Read it Forward Read it first. Read our short bible study further down this page as we explore this question: Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.
When the solution is simple, God is answering. Albert Einstein , theoretical physicist, Jabez was from the tribe of Judah Judah meaning "praise" and his mother had a difficult labour, naming him Jabez, which is Hebrew for "distress" or "pain". We know nothing else about Jabez because there is only one mention of him in the whole of the scriptures and it is here in 1 Chronicles 4: Jabez asks for a big blessing. The heart of God is to give good gifts to His children, and Christ encourages us to ask the Father for these gifts: Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone?
Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake?
If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! Jabez had a big goal.
Out of all the other ancestors 1 Chronicles 4 v. This prayer could apply to many areas of the believers life - not just physical territory as this seems to be in the case of Jabez.
Examples could include: For instance, the overcoming of fears or mindsets. The third thing that Jabez asks for is God's hand to be with him. Jabez is dependant on God in this process of stretching and development. He looks to God for his strength, presence and guidance.

Jabez asks that he would not be a pain!
Jabez was born in pain 1 Chronicles 4: However, as Jabez asks for blessing and expansion he does not want to cause sorrow to himself or anybody else. This shows us that his motivations come from a genuine heart for the good of all and not just his own well-being. Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find.
Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.
Perhaps the most controversial element in this prayer is that Jabez is praying for himself, for his own development. It is easier to pray a blessing on somebody else e. However, this is not the only instance of a character from the bible asking blessing for oneself compare the prayer of Jabez with that of Solomon's request for an understanding mind in 1 Kings 3:
