Jabez called upon the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from harm so that it might not bring me pain!” And God granted what he asked.
(1 Chronicles 4:10 ESV)
И воззвал Иавис к Богу Израилеву и сказал: о, если бы Ты благословил меня Твоим благословением, распространил пределы мои, и рука Твоя была со мною, охраняя меня от зла, чтобы я не горевал!.. И Бог ниспослал ему, чего он просил. (1-я Паралипоменон 4:10 Russian)
O LORD, the all powerful and all knowing God in whom I put my trust for the next breath. Give me the kind of faith that pleases you as I continue to learn from the people who have been found pleasing to you in the past. Bless me O Lord according to your abundant mercy, so that all my family and friends in the faith of Christ will make it through this life with minimal amount of suffering from personal injuries and illness. If it is your will dear Father, please permit me to witness an explosive growth of faith in Christ throughout all the territories of the former Soviet Union. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
