Prayer (3)

Prayer is a wonderful gift from God. We can pray to Him anywhere or any time. When we pray, we can praise and thank God. And, we can ask God to bless other people and to bless us, too.
Our Bible verses tell us about a man named Jabez. He was a very good man. We don’t know much about Jabez, but we do know that he prayed and God blessed him. Verse 10 says, “Jabez prayed to the God of Israel and said, ‘I pray that you would bless me and give me more land! Be near me and don’t let anyone hurt me! Then I will not have any pain.’ God gave Jabez what he asked for.”
Sometimes when we pray, we ask God for things. God may give us those things right away or in the future. Or, God may not give us those things at all. God knows what is right for us, and He will always give us what is best.
Thank God today that He has given you the wonderful gift of prayer
