1Ch 4:9-10 KJV9 And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. 10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
Oh Lord, increase and enlarge the favor, wisdom, abilities and opportunities for the growth I currently have to a whole new level. I ask for divine wisdom to protect me from making unwise decisions that will lead to painful consequences.
