A best seller for a reason, this book challenges you to live the life God intended for us all -- one filled with prayer and the assurance that God will answer our prayers (even if its not exactly how we think).

1 Chronicles Chapter 4 is nothing but genealogy. Or is it? In 1 Chron 4:10 there is mention of a man named Jabez, who says a prayer. And then the chapter goes back into genealogy. Who is this Jabez and why is his prayer so important that it would bring a genealogy recital to a full stop?

The author analyzes what Jabez's prayer means and how it reflects our own lives. Just imagine what miracles could happen if you would just ask for God's Blessings like Jabez and so many others in the Bible have.

The book is full of inspirational moments that he has witnessed or participated in first hand while using the prayer of Jabez. HOWEVER, many of these related situations are only half of the story. The author states that the Prayer of Jabez has led him to help many people. People who were about to divorce come back to tell him later that evening that they've changed their minds and will work toward a happier marriage. We are never told of the final outcome though. There's another story where he relates that in one night they "Saved" over 30 people. But did those people continue to live the life of a Christian after that? We don't know. And neither does the author.

This book uses the LORD's name in vain by DEMANDING at least 30 conversions in one night. Or when he DEMANDS at least 100 people show up for an event. That's not a Blessing; that's man's vanity. Numbers don't mean as much to God as a man's sincerity.

In the end, this is just a Christianized version of "The Secret".

A tiny little book with a powerful message. I was so deeply moved by the message that I bought a copy of the book for my daughter. It seemed as if the questions she was asking me were answered as I read the book.

I highly recommend this for anyone who believes. Sometimes it is the simplest of messages that carries the greatest impact.

I thought this was quite enlightening. It definitely is a starting point, not a do-all, be-all like the author seems to suggest. I think this is a good thing to incorporate into daily prayer. Like a few other reviewers, the author's demand for numbers of people is a bit extreme and possibly vain. But I think that at least he is asking and hoping. Again, I think this is a starting point, because I think God will provide, we just need to respond. It is definitely a template for structuring prayers and asking for God's grace.
