''The Prayer of Jabez'' takes root in a single Bible verse, 1 Chronicles 4:10. The text:
''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.''
