I am so much blessed by the book Prayer of Jabez. This book is an exposition on the prayer of Jabez found in I Chronicles 4 :10 ; 'Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my territory ! Let your hands be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain. And God granted his request.' This book was beautifully written by Bruce Wilkinson. I found the book very inspiring and rich in insights. I thought at first that Jabez was selfish in praying his prayer. But after reading the book I am convinced that I should also pray the same prayer if I wanted to do the will of God in my life and that God will be glorified in my life. The Prayer of Jabez is designed for all followers of Christ who want to do great exploits for the Kingdom of God. The prayer of Jabez should be prayed by every Christian who don't want to settle for anything less other than God's best. Reading the book "Prayer of Jabez" is never boring for me. It has lots of beautiful anecdotes which contain rich lessons in life. The writer Bruce Wilkinson is indeed a great servant of God who has deep spiritual experience with God. The book is a reflection of his rich experience in the ministry and wisdom about God's dealings with his children. I highly recommend the book for enriching spiritual wisdom and growth in the personal walk with God. How about you ? Have you read this book ? What can you say about this book ?
