The Prayer Of Jabez

Pretty interesting little book. I'm going to try praying it every day for 30 days. While I certainly don't believe that there is anything magical about the actual prayer, there certainly must be something to praying for those things specifically. I think it will also make me more aware of God's blessing in my life.
My greatest takeaway was the power of being convinced that God can do anything and asking him to perform miracles for his glory. "Because for the Christian, dependence is just another word for power." I love that line. The more I am dependent on God, the more I have to rely on his power as opposed to my own gifts and talents. That right there is enough reason to pray that God would overwhelm me. JM
