The Prayer of Jabez
Breaking Through to the Blessed Life
The Prayer of Jabez is written by Bruce Wilkinson who also wrote The Dream Giver.
It is based on 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, a very short story placed in between a long line of Old Testament genealogy. The book itself is not very long at just under 100 pages. If I were to write a long review here it would be uncharacteristic of both the Biblical story and the book itself. In spite of this there is a lot to learn from the short story of Jabez.
Similar to The Dream Giver, in this book Mr. Wilkinson is trying to stretch us to grow closer to God and reach for his will in our life. He also challenges us to pray the same prayer that Jabez did many years ago asking for His blessings on our life.
The Prayer of Jabez is a short quick read that is very interesting. I think you will enjoy it and be challenged by it.
The chapters include:
