           Super-size your life with a prayer straight from the Holy Bible, first spoken by famous shepherd Jabez:
           "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.” (1 Chronicles 4:9-10) (New International Version)
           So God granted him what he requested.
