The Prayer of Jabez

30 July 2017



1 Chronicles 4:9-10


While the beautiful prayer of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 is a good example, it’s not a one-size-fits-all, formulaic prayer for God’s automatic blessing. However, the full scope of God’s Word does teach us how we should pray, with what attitude and what we should expect to receive from it.

As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
