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?


Even with only 2 Take the City Outreaches under my belt, they have made such an impact in my own personal journey of faith, and others I have crossed paths with! The most special part to me is knowing that even if I meet someone and I never see them again, I know God has allowed me to touch their heart and plant a seed that I couldn’t have done sitting at home. I’m so thankful for this organization because it truly has allowed me to connect with others, with the goal of bringing them closer to Christ, while becoming closer with God myself at the same time.
