1 Chronicles 4:9-10 (ESV)
Jabez was more honorable than his brothers; and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” Jabez called upon the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from harm so that it might not bring me pain!” And God granted what he asked.
Our Father in heaven,
Both riches and honor come from You, and you rule over all. In Your hand are power and might, and in Your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.
We cry out for the students of the Mississippi Delta. Oh that You would bless them and enlarge their borders, and that Your hand might be with them. Oh that You would keep them from harm so that it might not bring them pain. Amen.
1 Chronicles 29:12
