The Prayer of Jabez: 1 Chronicles 4:9-10

Journal of Biblical Counseling 20:3

In this article, Richard Craven presents a sermon on 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, the passage used in the book The Prayer of Jabez. Craven aims to give a “straight-up-and-down biblical-theological sermon,” not a book review. He maintains that Jabez’s prayer grounds in vast realities: the curse and judgment of God and the pain and futility that is the human condition. Craven concludes that these verses lay hold of vast promises of God that come to fruition, not individualistically, not materialistically, but in the Messiah of the whole earth, Jesus Christ.
