Jabez whose name means pain did not dwell upon his situation but instead rise up to pray that God will bless him and extend his borders, would not cause him pain, be with him, and keep him from evil. His prayer was one that requests God to empower him for fruitfulness. 1 Chronicles 4:9-10. God granted his request because it was a whole-hearted prayer asking God to leap his life into one of fruitfulness. God has always desired fruitfulness for His children. Isaiah 54:2-3.
Let us pray for God’s blessings, for more influence, His hand of power upon us and protection from evil like Jabez that we might be fruitful always and multiply. Genesis 1:28.

If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land. Isaiah 1:19. Rebellion only bring devastation. Verse 20.
