Leaders will broaden their understanding of the four components of the Jabez prayer ("bless me; enlarge my borders; keep Your hand upon me; keep me from evil").

The best way to understand any material is to help others learn it. This leader¿s edition of The Prayer of Jabez Bible Study is an excellent resource to help you do that. Further, the essence of the Jabez prayer is to take on greater spiritual tasks for God, and this little book will help you to do so! I suggest that you begin by reading The Prayer of Jabez and then the Devotional that supplements it. When you are ready, start praying in the Jabez format on a daily basis. Next, spend four weeks using the Bible Study to guide your further learning, and keep a journal as you do. Then, invite family, friends, and acquaintances to engage in the Bible Study with you as the discussion leader. Keep up with your journal. Then, go through the Bible Study again on your own. From there, let God direct your steps. One of the benefits of undertaking the Bible Study first on your own is that you will find some minor errors in the Scriptural references. By locating and solving those mistakes in advance, you can help your study group more easily overcome those little hurdles, as well. In that way, you can help amplify God's message! The Bible Study is organized around four aspects of the Jabez prayer. First, blessings from God are discussed. Second, the focus shifts to having an expanded territory to accomplish His will. Third, you look at the importance of having God¿s help. Finally, you address avoiding evil and sin. Each section contains a quiz to help you assess how well prepared you are spiritually to reach out and connect with God¿s purpose. There are also questions designed to challenge beliefs that may be disconnecting you from God. Many scriptural references from both the Old and New Testaments then give you additional proof of the Jabez prayer¿s potential. There are also stories about people who have been using the Jabez prayer. I was especially pleased to see that the Bible Study addressed the discomfort that many Christians feel about having a personal ministry on God¿s behalf. I felt reaffirmed and encouraged to testify my own beliefs and experienced. The Bible Study is also very good for connecting to the goodness and beauty of living for God, rather than some other purpose. After you complete these studies, listen . . . watch . . . and reach out for more of God¿s messages. You will soon be joyfully enveloped in His love and plans for you!
