Gracious Father, as we study to be approved, and share what we have learned, increase our territory by your lovingkindness. I humbly ask in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“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).
