PRAYERS THAT RECEIVED AMAZING ANSWERS FROM GOD

***********************************************

1.THE PRAYER OF JABEZ

Jabez had a life changing experience as a result of his prayer. The first 9 chapters of the book of I Chronicles records a long list of geneology mentioning just the bare details of their names. However in the case of Jabez the scriptures elaborate further and mentions his remarkable experience with God. Jabez stands out among the long list of names. He began his life with sorrow as his mother named him Jabez because she gave birth to him in pain. Jabez faced a stigma in his life as a result. However instead of spending his life blaming his mother for the curse on his life , Jabez decided to seek God for a life changing experience.

Jabez called on the God of Israel and asked for a five fold blessing . He wanted God to bless him and remove all the curses on his life. Secondly he wanted to grow and expand . He did not want to remain stagnant in his life. Thirdly he wanted tha hand of God to be with him . He did not want to labour relying on his own strength alone. He wanted the hand of God to work with him and prosper the work of his hands. Fourthly he wanted divine protection from evil. He realised that he was living in an evil world and sought divine protection for his life. Fifthly he wanted to be delivered from sorrow. He wanted to experience joy and happines in his life. He wanted God to remove needless sorrow and pain from his life.

This prayer was pleasing to God as it was God’s desire that His people should experience all these blessings. Therefore God granted the desire of Jabez and his whole life was transformed.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCE

********************

I CHRONICLES 4:9-10

" Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, "I gave birth to him in pain."

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. "

2. THE PRAYER OF HANNAH

Hannah had a wonderful answer from God to her prayer which exceeded all her expectations. Hannah had no child because the Lord had shut her womb and Peninah the other wife of her husband was humiliating her on this account. This unbearable agony drove Hannah to seek God with her whole heart. She poured our her heart to God and vowed that if God would grant her a son , she would give her child back to God for His service. God answered the prayer of Hannah and the son born to her grew to be the great prophet Samuel. Hannah had desired only a child but God gave her a great prophet as her child.

The provocation of her rival caused Hannah to pray with intensity and receive an amazing answer from God . The Lord had shut her womb and allowed this trial in her life in order to cause Hannah to seek God with her whole heart and receive an amazing answer to prayer. The answers to intense travailing prayers will always be amazing and the Lord allows trials and tribulations in our lives in order to make us seek Him with such intensity and earnestness and receive great blessings from Him.
