21 Days of Prayer Devotional
Day 13
Andrew Chalmers / 1 Chronicles 4


Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let Your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted His request.

Thought of the day

Jabez was mentioned in a long genealogy, but the Lord honored him by mentioning his prayer for the Lord to bless Him. Throughout the Bible this is a common prayer and God seems to love answering it.

Questions to ponder

-Do I believe God wants to bless me? If not, what hinders me from believing and praying this?

-Get specific. In what ways do you want God to bless you? What would it look like for Him to expand your territory?


I learned about Take The City through a young lady at our church about 5 years ago and after going on my first outreach, I was HOOKED. I fell in love with the family environment, organic evangelism, and genuine love that I experience here.  The training, connections, and opportunities that I’ve been blessed with here have been nothing short of life-changing!  God bless my TTC family.
