I would buy more copies for friends to read

I enjoyed the short book and am planning to buy more copies for friends. I know it sounds crazy but I read the book, said the prayer and within a few days got a job- and I had been looking for a job for several months.

POJ Review

POJ is a timeless little pocket book w/life changing nuggets about the short prayer uttered by Jabez in the Bible; 1 Chronicles 4:9 & 10. Wonderful insight about a man who wanted and was not afraid to ask God for extraordinary blessings in his life.

A small book with a big message

In his book, The Prayer of Jabez, Bruce Wilkinson challenges Christians to live life more fully by praying a prayer every day and then recording the results. Jabez is a rather obscure character in the Bible who appears in 1 Chronicle 4:9-10. He is described as "more honorable than his brothers", but what sets him apart is his powerful prayer. Wilkinson describes each part of the prayer and explains some of the consequences of praying it each day. Basically, the prayer asks for increased blessings from God which will lead the believer to a deeper and fuller Christian life which will be characterized by greater responsibility and service. Wilkinson throws down a challenge to his readers, gives them a method to revitalize their Christian walk and then leaves it squarely up to them as to whether they have the courage to pursue it.

A little book that can make a big difference in your prayer

The Prayer of Jabez is a little book that can make a big difference in your prayer life. It is based on an obscure passage of Scripture found in I Chronicles 4:9-10. Jabez teaches us that through believing prayer we can overcome any limitation and change our future. Wilkerson does an outstanding job of bringing the passage to life while challenging the reader to apply its truths. Over the years I've prayed the prayer of Jabez over my own life and shared its truth with others, seeing supernatural results. I was excited to see that someone had written a book about the prayer. Little did I realize the great impact it would have. I've heard numerous people comment on the inspiration and encouragement they have received from Wilkerson's book. I heartily recommend it for adding passion to your prayer life.

Little Prayer - Great Insight

This little book about a "little" prayer said by a little known biblical character speaks volumes. It simplifies the focus for Christians who want to expand their influence for Christ. Start with recognition of personal need for God's blessing, ask for opportunity to witness, seek His power, and His protection have the keys. God will answer your prayer. Inspirational and worthwhile reading.
