Jabez prayed to expand his territory. In other words, to made his circle larger.
He did so with passion and with purpose. Name after name was listed in his family lineage and others family lineages in 1 Chronicles. But there was more than just his name mentioned. Jabez was the one that was honorable.
Because, in expanding his territory he did so calling out to God. Be bold with your requests before the Lord. In every request do so with love and with intent. Before a loving God and FOR a loving God...and make circles as you go.
Learn it. Live it. Love others with it.
