This article focuses on the book "The Prayer of Jabez." It was in the year 2000 that Bruce H. Wilkinson produced his best-selling tomelet "The Prayer of Jabez" along with a series of inevitable specialised versions. When one prays Jabez' prayer it's probably best to do it in the original language as used by Jabez himself. Somehow it rings truer, sounds better, more spiritual, more biblical even. Worldwide there are stories of those who have faithfully prayed Jabez' prayer. Countless thousands, millions even, of Christians have been blessed with abundant material blessings.
