The Prayer of Jabez: Breaking Through to the Blessed Life (Multnomah: Sisters, Oregon, © 2000 by Bruce H. Wilkinson)
(written with the colaboration of David Kopp)
Dr. Wilkinson's enthusiasm for teaching the prayer of Jabez is akin to the drive many other godly pastors have in teaching their approach to living an active Christian lifestyle. In his book, he uses the prayer of Jabez, found in 1 Chronicles 4:10, as a guide to praying actively. Dr. Kopp has been using this prayer for 30 years as his guide.
Spiritual principles do not change with the passing of time. Although this prayer was written well before Jesus' days walking the earth, it is still relevant today Many others have come up with formulas for praying, such as following the Lord's prayer from Matthew chapter 6, or using the ACTS approach (Adoration - Confession - Thanksgiving - Supplication), or Seed Faith praying. Many today are following the pattern of the Prayer of Jabez.

What I will be presenting is my way of interpretating of 1 Chronicles 4: 9 & 10. A believer with Bible college training and practical daay-to-day experience, Spirit filled and Holy Spirit baptized, I was raised in the Presbyterian church, born again while a student at Brock University (St. Catharines, ON, Canada), joined the Free Methodist church, and when I recently moved to Winnipeg, MB, I started attending two different church fellowships at the same time, one a Mennonite offshoot that follows the same path as Reba Place (Grain of Wheat Church Commnunity) and the other a quasi-pentacostal independent church (Mount Zion Community Church). I am also a member of Full Gospel business Men's Fellowship, the Winnipeg Chapter.
All of the above means little except for those folk who like to check credentials. However, you would be right if you would expect this presentation to have a holiness/charismatic approach. My approach differs from Dr. Wilkinson's because I deal with the topic in eight parts, while he breaks the prayer into four.
