The Prayer of Jabez

The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson

Do you wish to be abundantly blessed by God? Dr. Bruce Wilkinson teaches that through recitation of the prayer of Jabez, one of the Bible’s little-known heroes of the faith, you can experience the grace, the power and the protection of God.

One spiritual source of positive prosperity thinking is found in the book, The Prayer of Jabez: Breaking Through to the Blessed Life by Bruce Wilkinson. The Prayer of Jabez is taken from the Old Testament of the Bible, 1 Chronicles 4:10:

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.

According to the book’s author, Bruce Wilkinson, from a biblical sense, “blessing” means to ask for or to impart supernatural favor. We’re not asking for more of what we could get for ourselves. We’re crying out for the wonderful, unlimited goodness that only God has the power to know about or give to us.
