    When Israel split, Judah was left to care for Jerusalem while the rest of the siblings of patriarch Jacob-- God protect Israel-- eventually disseminated into the nations as the lost son. Jabez a name in the midst of Judah's family tree mentioned in 1Chronicles 4:9-10 refused to settle in the mentality of bitterness or sorrow and chose to seek help. King Solomon the wisest of any man who lived or live also had a prayer to God that was answered. I love jabez prayer and l pray that it be the children of Jerusalem prayer. " ...Your Hand be with me.. " this prayer has something about walking with the Holy Spirit of God, guidance and His protection from pain or harm, God answered his prayer. Jacob told Pharaoh of a few and evil days of his life -- evil, meaning painful as a result of all he had gone through Genesis 47:7-10. Experience is honored as best the best teacher therefore Jabez wished to have a change and not rediscover the wheel. In this case of a better Jerusalem Netanyahu wish, if for peace or good can bring results in through prayers.
