Song Lyrics

Oh that You would bless me indeed (x2)
And enlarge my border
That Your hand would be with me
That You’d keep me from evil
That I might not cause pain
Oh when I call on Your name
Oh that You would bless me
That Your hand would be with me.

Song Notes

Not much is mentioned in the Bible about Jabez, but his now famous prayer is helping millions around the world to find answers to prayers we had long forgotten to pray. God does want us to live the blessed life, and we have not simply because we do not ask. The prayer is a simple one: "And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, 'Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain.' So God granted him what he requested."

Dr. Bruce Wilkinson, author of the book "The Prayer of Jabez", says he has prayed the Jabez prayer for many years and testifies to the powerful effect it has had in his own life. He challenges readers to pray the prayer every day and notice the changes that occur in their own lives. He says it is not the prayer itself that brings the changes, but "rather, the power is in what you believe will happen as a result of the prayer, and the action you take."

Four things Jabez prayed for.

1. Oh that You would bless me!
The power of blessing from God is such that to bless means to “cause to come to pass”. The coming to pass of the blessing is effective in the blessing itself. When God speaks it sets in motion a series of creative miracles that brings the words spoken into the realm of reality.

2. Enlarge my border.
Oh that you would increase my sphere of influence! Make me great, not just for greatness sake but so that I might be used by You to increase Your influence and goodness in the earth.

3. That Your hand might be with me.
When You are with me who can be against me? Your mighty power leads me, protects me, strengthens me, and I find all things working together for good. You are everything I need.

4. That You would keep me from evil.
The world seems full of trouble, and I want none of it! Please protect me from all of my enemies, and please don’t let me be one. I don’t ever want to hurt anybody. Please don’t let me cause anyone any pain or sorrow. I just want You to bless me, so I can be a blessing in the earth.
God granted his request! God is always ready to hear any prayer from a sincere heart.

This little book has challenged my faith to do greater things for a great God, and to believe Him for the miracles necessary to get the job done. After reading the book I felt inspired to put Jabez's prayer into song. Memorizing scripture isn't one of my strengths, but I've found that when a verse is set to music I have no problem! Download this song in mp3 format and sing it every day! You'll soon find yourself on the way to the blessed life, "sitting on the front seat of a life full of miracles!"
