Like this: Our Father in heaven, Reveal who you are. Set the world right; Do what's best-- as above, so below. Keep us alive with three square meals. Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others.

The idea that the message he is spreading is one of new day American Christianity is upsurd. The message he is spreading here is one I can totally identify with. There comes a distinct point in your walk where you desire more.

Not more money, monetary gain could I read this book in a couple of hours which is doable because its so short. Not more money, monetary gain could never fill you. What you desire is a thirst to touch more lives, to do more for Gods Kingdom. I prayed this prayer for the first time this morning and I realized in comparison, my prayers put so many limits on God. This prayer to me and I believe to others who get it is saying, Lord not my will, but give me the territory you want me to have to make the biggest impact for You.

I'm ready to receive it. A former student asked me about this book, which I had never read. So I read it. There really are some worthwhile things in here. Once you discount for the evangelical cheese, which is certainly there let us be frank , the principles outlined are perfectly biblical and orthodox.

This is no "blab it grab it" book. I am now inclined to think the send up we published some years ago The Mantra of Jabez was not entirely fair to Wilkinson. View all 4 comments. It didn't take much time to send this book to its doomed destiny where it really belongs: the garbage can. I found it in a used bookstore where they give away free books which they get inundated with. I was so thrilled to get my own copy for free. I love always to read books on prayer. The book is very "American" and I mean here"American Christianity", Evangelical style where it is mere business, selling and marketing.

Indeed, one doesn't swerve too much from the truth when one says that when Go It didn't take much time to send this book to its doomed destiny where it really belongs: the garbage can. Indeed, one doesn't swerve too much from the truth when one says that when God came to the East, people there worshipped him and even fought over him, when he came to Europe, they sadly abandoned him, but when God came to America they made a business, a profit out of him. The book is simply about how you can use God for whatever you can get from him.

It reminds me of this big hamburger in America and everything is large and extra large even in foods and drinks. I kept reading the book in the hope I would get something out of it, but it is the same flashy, media-craving type of religiosity, and no content. The author in all chutzpa bragged that he had 9, people hearing him preaching on his trademark sermon of the prayer of Jabez.

It is about him and how much big of a preacher he is. By the way, prayer is a favourite topic of mine. Frankly, I have read Muslim books on prayer that are more inspiring and blessed than this book! Jesus says to seek the Kingdom of God first and foremost and all else will be added as a bonus when we least expect it, but not what these super-star American flashy preachers in the Evangelical Christian media. This is frankly the worst book I have ever read in my entire life on prayer. It is a form of prostitution of what is Divine for utilitarian purposes. Tagore the Hindu did a far superior job in his prayers, for crying out loud!

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! It seems almost misplaced with the more than names of the Hebrew family tree.

    Bruce Wilkinson explains that Jabez means "pain. A person's name defined him. Jabez wanted what God did in his life to define him, not his name. Bruce Wilkinson explains the verse, line by line. Oh that you would bless me indeed - It's not wrong to ask for God to bless you the way He wants to bless you. Jabez didn't ask God to bless him with specific things, he just asked to be blessed. This is not being selfish, it's asking God to give you all He has for you. And enlarge my territory - Jabez wanted a bigger "territory" so he could do more for God.

    He knew he was born for more than just being known as one who caused pain. When our territory gets bigger we are reaching more people for God. That Your hand would be with me - Jabez knew he needed to depend on God to be able to do things for Him. Having God's hand on your life is having God's presence and power. Jabez wanted to be directed by God. And that You would keep me from evil - Jabez knew that with all of God's blessings he might fall into temptation of thinking how great he was.

    Also, because we are doing what God wants us to do, the devil is going to try to stop us, by sending evil our way. This book can be misinterpreted very easily. People think that by praying this prayer that they will be blessed with every desire of their heart. The truth is that you will, if you are praying the way God would have you pray. Our goal in life should be to lead others to the saving grace of God that we found. If we are loving God with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind, and all our strength like the Bible says, then we will pray Jabez's prayer the way it is intended.

    I have been praying this prayer daily for more than ten years because I want live the life God has planned for me and not miss out on any blessings from Him. I want all I do to be directed by God and not let evil keep me from doing all I can for God. You have to read through this book a few times to fully understand what the verse is all about. I would recommend this book for everyone. Check out this book and see how this seemingly misplaced verse can change your prayer life.

This book is not for those who are not destitute or not in lack in some way or who do not need God to enlarge your territory in any way.

    This book is for those who have experienced sorrow, who desire increase, who need practice in meditating on God's Word day and night. This book takes one Scripture and teaches the principles of meditating on eac I think this book is great. This book takes one Scripture and teaches the principles of meditating on each of God's promises. It's each promise of God everyday. The prayer of Jabez book clearly teaches increase from God is not always about money.

    He can increase Hope, peace, and increased in love, an increase in a sound mind. It is an increase in whatever your soul lacks from God. So, to those who thought in buying this book you would find the biblical secret to an immediate increase in wealth, I suggest you go back and re-read the book from a different perspective. A perspective that includes an increase for your whole self. Jul 31, Laura rated it did not like it. It bothers me a lot when people try to predict God's behavior based on just one verse or passage.

I received this little book for Christmas from a friend. It's a quick and easy read. It's based on a couple verses in the Bible 1 Chronicles about a man named Jabez and a prayer he gave.

    He goes on to break down the prayer into four parts and talk about each part and how to apply it in our lives. He had some good thoughts and insights. Sometimes I felt like he reached too far and assumed too much, but it was a nice message overall. Some things that stand out to me are the idea of praying for more responsibilities, more opportunities to grow, more ways to help people, and recognizing that we can only do those things with his help. If we are not depending on God very much in our lives, maybe we are keeping things too safe.

    Maybe we need to stretch ourselves to the point that we need his help. He will provide opportunities for growth and also the help that we need to achieve that. It is kind of a scary thought to step out into doing things that are too hard for us to do alone, but I can see the wisdom in that. I also liked his thoughts on praying to keep us away from evil.

    I hadn't thought about it, but generally I would pray to be strong in the face of temptations and to withstand evil, but I hadn't really thought about praying to just keep evil and temptation far away from me so I don't even have to deal with it. Sounds nice. So while I didn't agree with every word, I did find some things that inspired me and got me thinking. Jan 03, Jacob Aitken rated it liked it. It's easy to beat up Wilkinson this book.

    And maybe one should. I won't, though. Others have done it more thoroughly than I. For all of the silliness this book spawned, Wilkinson did catch on a real truth that many of his detractors missed: when you pray, you better pray in faith as though, wild thought it be, God will answer. Who in the world is this knucklehead to suggest that praying the words of some obscure mention of a dude named Jabez in the Old Testament over and over, day after day, is THE key above all keys to God's favor? To me this is absolutely disgusting to even suggest and I tend to believe that only a person who has not truly experienced a revelation of the Gospel by the Holy Spirit would dare even think such a thing!

    I also remember reading several Roman Catholic publications at the time that Jabez was so popular and Catholic leaders were commenting that they were encouraged by the Protestant excitement over the prayer of Jabez because, while Protestant Christians have long criticized Catholics for the futility of rote praying i. So Catholics were actually praising Protestants for coming on board with long-held Roman Catholic mindsets concerning prayer!!!

    Still is! Hey look I'm glad things worked out awesome for Jabez. God is good and He loves to bless His people. It's cool to know that God blessed this man The book The Prayer of Jabez, in my opinion, is basically just a form of Christian witchcraft. Sorry, but that's how I see it.

    Maybe the prayer of Jesus isn't quite as interesting for some, but the spirit of those words Jesus spoke as an example for us have always produced blessing in my life I believe Jesus simply gave us an example of how our heart should be in approach to God. Humility, simplicity, hope, forgiveness, praise, thanksgiving and faithfulness The following in closing is the Lord's prayer from the Message paraphrase. How different is the heart of this prayer from Wilkinson's Jabez concept: Matthew - Jesus said "Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won't be tempted to role-play before God.

    Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace. The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They're full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don't fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply.

    Like this: Our Father in heaven, Reveal who you are. Set the world right; Do what's best-- as above, so below. Keep us alive with three square meals. Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others. Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil. You're in charge! You can do anything you want! You're ablaze in beauty! View all 3 comments.

    They hardly know it exists. This is a prayer not to face temptation, Wilkinson says. In conclusion, Wilkinson asserts that God does have favorites. The nature of Wilkinson's message has drawn immediate comparisons among some critics to the health-and-wealth gospel of the televangelists. But Baptist advocates of the book say that's not what the book teaches at all.

    See a Problem?

    Johnny White, associate pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in San Antonio, acknowledged the book "skates on the edge of health and wealth," but he does not believe that was Wilkinson's intent. In using the book at Trinity, where people recently discussed it in home Bible studies, "we've tried to focus on the natural human tendency to turn inward.

    We've tried to draw from that passage the outward focus -- bless me that I might reach out. Even though he likes and advocates the prayer, it should not be seen as a "quick fix" or a "magic formula," said Jeff Williams, pastor of First Baptist Church of Denton, Texas. When he does, however, he presents it as "a biblical example of when a man prayed a bold prayer and God said yes.

    While he believes God answers all prayers, Crawford asserted that God doesn't always answer all prayers in the affirmative. The value of the Jabez model is to encourage Christians to pray boldly, Crawford said. It should not be construed as a "hocus-pocus magic formula," he warned.

    Even so, scores of people are reporting that they have discovered life-changing results by praying the prayer of Jabez. Reviews of the book on Amazon. Elmore said he and other members of his family have found personal blessings through the prayer of Jabez. Yet he understands how the prayer and the book might be misused. A person who feels the need to pray this specific prayer as a formula to achieve God's blessing is "a person who's more concerned with prayer than the God who answers prayer," he said.

    White, likewise, has found the prayer of Jabez personally beneficial. And he's heard from other members of Trinity that they have too. Yet it's not the only thing he prays, he said. Christians should not fall into using the prayer of Jabez as a "ritualistic prayer," Crawford added. That's throughout the Scriptures. I don't think it's totally dependent upon us asking for it in some kind of ritualistic prayer.
