What do you mean by the prayer of/by Jabez?
---Jack on 11/25/07

Spruce - You are right. The New Testament teaches us to pray to the Father in the name of the Son. Jesus also says to not pray repetitiously.

Deceptive Jabez prayers. Old Testament prosperity prayer in which the Name of Jesus obviously does not appear, and people are taught to recite this 33-word prayer in 1 Chronicles 4:10 every day to receive great blessings in their lives. Recite the prayer regularly and receive prosperity.
But often the miracles/properity do not materialise despite unceasing recitation of the Jabez prayer.

Then you will discover the truth of Matthew 6:7.
But when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think they will be heard for their many words. A New Testament prayer must be prayed in the Name of the Lord Jesus and in accordance with Gods will (John 14:13; 1 John 5:14).

Not for the Chinese and Afganis.

I like this answer."The prayer of Jabez was for Jabez, however the principles apply to all in terms of seeking God."
---Mikey on 5/7/07
and if you can pray this prayer for yourself you may be pleasantly surprised.

We can adopt the prayer as our own but it is not mandatory that we do. All scripture teaches us something and is useful to us in one way or another. The entire bible was written for God's saved children. It is like a road map for our lives but many of us do not read it and certainly dont follow it. That is why we often get lost and have many wrecks, so to speak. We can live a prosperous and overcoming life as Christians if we are obedient to God's Word. Follow the map!

Jabez's prayer, in principle can be applied as all scripture accordingly. I was surprised as to the wide response to that over the publication of that little book when it came out long ago.

Jack, this is the Prayer of Jabez, its a prayer for anyone I think.

"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, that I may not cause pain!"

If you have a Bible, you don't have to buy the book. It's in the Book.
---Laura on 5/6/07

Get yourself the book:The prayer of Jabez, from Bruce Wilkinson. It will explain all. This prayer is to everyone who calls themselves Christian. 1 Cron.4:9
