The Prayer Of Jabez
A most amazing thing was recently revealed to me. It is a hidden prayer in the Bible that many biblical scholars feel contains the key to a life of extraordinary favor with God.
The Prayer of Jabez
It’s called the Prayer of Jabez and is an obscure prayer buried in the middle of an extensive genealogy listing in 1 Chronicles in the New King James version. This prayer alone has been acknowledged by tens of thousands of people from around the world each year as a miraculous powerful prayer of blessing that many people overlook. It is an absolute life changer as testimonies that you will soon read and hear about concur. Just try it – you’ll see!
The scripture reads:
“Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, ‘I gave birth to him in pain.’ Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘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 so that I may not cause pain.’ And God granted his request.”
1 Chronicles 4:9-10
That’s all there is to it. It has only two verses that include the prayer. It’s interesting to note that this reference is the one and only time that the name of Jabez, an ordinary man was mentioned in the Bible.
The Prayer Of Jabez Will Bless You Into Prosperity
The proclamation of this prayer in recent years over social media outlets has prompted millions of believers and non-believers alike to memorize and repeat the Prayer of Jabez often repeating the specific prayer many times every day. The returning testimonies of what blessings manifested beyond are extraordinary.
I am totally convinced that IF you recite this powerfully designed prayer daily, then you will at some point be surely blessed by extraordinary events and circumstances in your life. If you are in any type of business, the Prayer of Jabez will behold unto you amazing blessings. Read on.
People all over the world are in a grateful, awakening state in asking God to bless them with this humble prosperity prayer and are actively applying it within their own lives at home, in the workplace, at school, at places of business, within their personal everyday, lively relationships of everyone that they are connected to or anyone they newly meet.

See this amazing video of Pastor Jentezen Franklin interviewing Bruce Wilkinson, the best selling author of the book, “The Prayer of Jabez.” Be sure to see the continuing Bible Study Series of the Prayer of Jabez as well that has numerous options for small groups to study.
It was a particular time in late November when the night time temperature was suppose to dip into the upper teens that evening. BRRRRRRRRR!
It turns out the problem was only a small tube that was clogged. Adam fixed it within ten seconds, explained what the problem was and simply said, “no charge folks.”
Our small talk afterwards got around to where do you live, family matters and even church. Adam then shared with us the story of the Prayer of Jabez that was introduced to him by his hair barber.
I was so fascinated by it that I went online later on that evening to research it further and discovered that it is indeed something that everyone needs to share with others.
I went to the bookstore that weekend and purchased the book, “The Prayer of Jabez” authored by Bruce Wilkinson. It has already sold more than 10 million copies and is a New York Times #1 Bestseller book. It’s definitely a worthy purchase and read.
Wow is all I can really say about it! It was so inspirational that I immediately purchased the Prayer of Jabez Bible Study guide book too. It breaks down the original book into a 4 week study course that you can easily share in a group setting. You can also use it for personal self study purposes for more in depth analysis of the Prayer of Jabez.
The Song Of Jabez
It’s funny sometimes how the paths of people intersect at times to deliver a needed message or invitation from God.
