PRAYER FOCUS: RISING ABOVE UNPLEASANT CIRCUMSTANCES.
PRAYER FOR 120 DAYS TARRY FOR GREATER GLORY:
1 Chron. 4: 9-10
 Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.”
 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.
As falling down a cliff is easier than climbing a cliff, so also is entering into unpleasant situation easier than coming out of it. Jabez was tormented with foundational problems which had limited his progress in life. But, one day, he chose not to be at ease in Zion. He cried out to God to break the limitations and draw him out of unpleasant circumstances. He got his salvation and the evil yoke was broken and he began to be prosperous. ‘If people who are called by my name shall humble themselves as the prodigal and turn and seek my face, I will certainly turn away their captivity.”
