prayer for success
The famous prayer by Jabez recorded in 1 Chronicles 4:10:-
All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.
Lawrence of Arabia, Thomas Edward Lawrence (1885-1932), writer and British army officer
