The Prayer of Jabez – old prayer / new project

Recently I discovered a bunch of cassette tapes in my closet from 1960s forward. I took on the project to digitize a few of them. This is my first success story. You can listen via these links via anything that will work with mp3 files:

Prayer of Jabez Side 1.mp3

Prayer of Jabez Side 2.mp3

The files are too big to attach so these are links to the files on one drive.  Each side is about 30 minutes long.  I thoroughly enjoyed this presentation and have listened several times in the process of digitizing the tape.  You should be able to listen on your phone without downloading but you can download the files as you wish if that works better for you.  The files should be available to share with others if you want to do that also.

This presentation was originally given at an Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) meeting around the year 2000 about the same time the book Prayer of Jabez came out from comments made.  Here is a picture of the book and author I found online.

Bruce Wilkinson is a delightful speaker and shares personal stories that make this teaching come alive – it was rich when I first heard it and richer this time as I rediscovered it.  Moreover, I have been praying it more consciously this week and praying it over others as opportunities arose for me.  I hope it is as timely for you as for me and you will let me know your thoughts.

I am also interested in better ways to share things like this with you so let me know if this method works for you.

The passage being discussed is found in I Chronicles 4:10

Two additional passages have been coming to my mind as I have pondered this verse this week.

First the parallels with the Lord’s prayer found in Matthew 6:9-13.  And the incident wherein Jacob wrestled with the angel (I believe it was Yashua) and said, “I will not let you go unless You bless me.” Genesis 32: 22-31

All that to say be fervent in asking for the Lord’s blessing and praying it over others as well!  His storehouses are never-ending and His delight in you unparalled.

Hope you enjoy!

Love,

Sandie
