Now, a small book has prompted millions of saints and seekers to memorize and repeat the same prayer daily. After three thousand years of obscurity, Jabez has found surprising favor with the world. So, what's the problem with promoting a Biblical prayer that God honored in His Word? After all, our Lord delights in the prayers of His saints -- all the daily thanks, praises and petitions that turn our hearts to Him in faith, worship and surrender.

Using Bible verses as a basis for prayer and worship is a wonderful habit. Because this book -- not Jabez' prayer -- promises rewards from God that God doesn't promise in the Bible. While author Bruce Wilkinson enriches the meaning of Jabez' prayer in the rest of his book, the first part many readers go no further seems to put the book into the unbiblical realm of the "name it claim it" movement.

Consider the opening words: It is brief--only one sentence with four parts--and tucked away in the Bible, but I believe it contains the key to a life of extraordinary favor with God Thousands of believers who are applying its truths are seeing miracles happen on a regular basis.

The Prayer of Jabez - 5 Inspiring Lessons

Will you join me for a personal exploration of Jabez? I hope you will! Millions have joined his quest. Many have testified to miraculous answers which demonstrate God's love, mercy and intervention on behalf of those who seek Him. But these amazing interventions and anecdotal stories don't prove that God "always answers" this specific prayer. Nor do they verify that this Old Testament prayer by itself "contains the key" to extraordinary favor with God. Nor does the Bible suggest that we -- God's people -- have the authority or power to "put Jabez' [or any other] prayer to work," as Christianbook.

Ponder its invitation to potential buyers: See what God will do for you when you put Jabez' prayer to work! It is hard to see how anyone could conclude that Jabez' prayer "works" better than the prayers of Moses, David, Elijah and Paul -- men used by God to liberate His people, slay giants, restore life to a dead boy and bring sight to the blind. The "miraculous power of God" demonstrated through their lives came, not because of the words they uttered, but because they had consecrated their lives to God, humbled themselves before Him, trusted in His provision for sin, and chose to seek and do His will with all their heart and without compromise.

Therefore God forgave their sins, offered His strength in their weaknesses and -- through the Holy Spirit in them -- put prayers in their hearts that expressed His will. Because these men took time to know His Word and will, God "spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. Unlike these friends of God who loved His Word and walked with Him, the church at the dawn of the new millennium tends to be Biblically illiterate. But we all want His help, peace and blessings. In this cultural context, the "positive assurances" and marketing tactics behind Wilkerson's little book raise some searching questions: Does the Bible justify using "the prayer of Jabez" as a formula for success?

If so, why would Jesus give us the model prayer in Matthew 6: In the days of Jesus, rabbis would often use prayer outlines. Today, many faithful students of Biblical history believe that "the Lord's prayer" was such a prayer -- one that provided a pattern or outline for longer prayers. Then as now, its short parts were reminders that God would be pleased if we would include certain points in our quiet times with Him: Praise to our heavenly Father who hears and provides. Confession and cleansing as we bow before a holy God. Thanks for the goodness and glory of His Kingdom. Confidence in His perfect plan and readiness to yield to His will.

Trust that our Provider will meet our needs each day. Faith that through the cross, we have forgiveness for every sin. Prayer for grace to forgive others and be filled with His love. Prayer for wisdom to recognize and resist any temptation or evil. Praise for His sovereignty, love and faithfulness to those who follow Him. Jesus emphasized the Giver.

Since the prayer of Jabez precedes the New Testament call to absolute commitment, it is acceptable to the world. It sounds good whether people serve God or self.

Since it doesn't point to Christ or the cross, it carries no offense. It offers the same blessings to those who pursue a self-made image of God as to those who walk with Jesus. In a recent interview, George Barna, founder and president of the Barna Research Group, shared his concern: I think that there is very little sense of privilege and awe and responsibility that comes along in our culture with the notion of being considered a disciple of Christ. Now let me go to the country club and do my thing.
