Jabez

bytheoncomingstorm©

*based off of 1 Chronicles 4:10*

I am Jabez, that is my name
Born into the world causing pain
I prayed a prayer one day long ago
That prayer changed my life, this is how it goes
Oh God of Israel, bless me indeed
That your hand would guide and lead me
That I would not cause pain but bring joy instead
That I would sow seeds of love and that people would be fed
That you would change my heart and make it new
That I would learn to trust in you
That you would keep me and make me strong
That I would walk in your ways all year long
Open my eyes to truth daily new
That I would rely on you and always speak in truth
I prayed this prayer once and God heard from above
He answered my prayers and filled me with patience and love
My name is Jabez, God hears prayers
In pain and joy His hope, healing, and love to share
