Key Verse: “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.” (I Chronicles 4:10, NIV)
Prayer Point: That the Lord would demonstrate His glory by doing something more abundantly than we could ask or imagine through the Celebration Of Hope.
Prayer: We pray for wisdom and strength to endure and an open heart to receive more than we asked for, more than we imagined could be. We pray that the God who saw us in the darkness of our weakness will raise us in His mercy to the light of His spacious places, larger lands, and unpredictable conquests. May the dreams You give us lift our hopes to new heights. May You increase our expectations to what You are truly capable of and may we experience the most unrelenting, overwhelming breeze of Your unfailing, unconditional, incomprehensible love. Show us glimpses in shadowed moments of Your matchless glory, in small humanly bearable portions. For if we truly knew, if we could experience the whole of it, would we be able to stand? We are undone by You. Amen.
