Is it wrong to pray the prayer of Jabez or other such prayers that Jesus didn't mention?

When asked about instructions on prayer, Jesus taught his disciples the Lord's Prayer. Does it follow that to pray other types of prayers is not okay?

1 Chronicles 4:9 - 10

ESV - 9 Jabez was more honorable than his brothers; and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, "Because I bore him in pain. 10 Jabez called upon the God of Israel, saying, "Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from harm so that it might not bring me pain!" And God granted what he asked.
