17/21 Days of Prayer
“Let Your hand be with me…”
1 CHRONICLES 4:10 (NIV)
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.
We need God’s presence in our lives in order to make a lasting impact in people’s lives. Through His power at work within us, God can do more than we could ever ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). As we ask for blessing and influence, we need to ask for His presence as Jabez did. This prayer reminds us that we are not operating out of our own strength, but through the presence and the hand of our Almighty God.
In humility, acknowledge your need for God’s presence. Depend on Him, and ask for more of Him in your life today.
“Lord, I know that without You, I am nothing. I cannot do what You’ve called me to do on my own. I am desperate for Your presence in my life. I depend on You completely. I recognize that the same Spirit who raised Christ Jesus from the dead lives in me. Through the power of Your Spirit, I pray that You will help me succeed in the opportunities You’ve given me. Thank You for being with me. I would never want to face today without You.”
