Aug 14, David rated it did not like it I read this book about 10 or 12 years ago when my pastor at the time gave me a copy to read. At that time it seemed like everyone in the church was into Jabez and the book was passing hands like hot potatoes As one author put it so well: "For Wilkinson, the prayer of Jabez has become the secret to success in every endeavor. God is viewed as a butler who responds in a mechanical manner when certain words are recited.

I found it kinda funny that for thousands of years, no one ever seemed to have heard of Jabez among Christians I certainly don't remember reading about him growing up in church world Another author in response this book wrote a little book of his own called "The Prayer of Jesus" to which I chuckled because it was obvious that author was annoyed with the Jabez fad as well.

The Prayer of Jabez: Breaking Through to the Blessed Life

When the disciples of Jesus came to Him and asked Him how they should pray, He didn't tell them to go look up Jabez in the scroll and pray like that!

Furthermore, Jesus didn't tell them to beg for prosperity. He said to simply pray that God would give them their daily bread and keep them from evil.

I believe it contains the key to a life of extraordinary favor with God Always answers? Are you sure? God's ways are much higher than our ways and certainly His path doesn't always make immediate sense to us. Jesus, as a matter of fact, told us that in this life it was a guarantee that we would suffer and even that we would be hated by many just because we followed Him.

He also prayed for His followers and asked that the Father not take them out of the world to escape from suffering, but to keep them through it. The apostle Paul talked about suffering hardship, sickness and poverty but still counting it all joy.

The apostles repeatedly taught that we should be content with what we have and not greedy. Yet, somehow, Mr. Wikinson, ignores all this instruction and instead teaches that if you pray a rote prayer the exact same prayer, verbatim from Jabez , every day, over and over, that God must grant you prosperity!

Many people now know about this prayer through a short 92 pages best-selling book, The Prayer of Jabez: In fact, over 4 million copies have been sold since the book was published about sixteen months ago. They get a whole new vision of what can happen to them. God can bless them a whole lot, but they must ask for it Are you ready to reach for the extraordinary?

To ask God for the abundant blessings he longs to give you? This petition has radically changed what I expect from God and what I experience every day by his power.

A true call to prayer should be welcomed anytime, and such a call to prayer takes seriously what the Word of God teaches on prayer. The Prayer of Jabez fails miserably in this regard. The book unashamedly deviates greatly from historic Christian teaching on prayer that is consistent with the Word of God and the Reformed confessions and catechisms.
