The Bible is the WORD of God; it includes 66 books – 39 in what we call the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament.
Reading your Bible every day will bring you nearer to God and the nearer to God you become the more He will listen to you whenever you pray.
In the Book of BIG Prayers you will discover many scriptures that will greatly enrich your life.
Prayers do not have to be lengthy ones; God is always very happy to receive your prayers, whatever the length, providing you are genuinely sincere in all that you are asking of Him.
Jesus said “Ask and it shall be given unto you” (Matthew 7: 7) – and thus it is, you will soon discover, on many many occasions when you pray.
One of the most powerful prayers in this book is the Prayer of Jabez. Not much is known about Jabez but what we do know is that Jabez was a very honourable man and that his mother called him Jabez because he gave her much pain when he was born.
And Jabez called on God – in prayer – saying:-
“Oh that you would bless me and expand my territory.
And that you will protect me from evil, so that I may not cause pain to anyone”
You will find Jabez’s prayer in 1 Corinthians 4: 10.
And the Bible goes on to say that God granted Jabez’s request.
Jabez’s superiority of honour lay:-
- In piety towards God, the true source and characteristic of honour
- In his pursuit of advancement being in dependence upon God
- In his complete dependence upon God’s protection
- In his unshaken confidence in restraining and preventing grace
In the Lord’s Prayer – of which I hope you are already familiar – we say ‘Thy will be done’. Not your will, remember, but God’s will!
God is the Father of us all. He is a wonderful parent and looks after each one of us – individually.
However, the saying ‘God looks after those who look after themselves’ is also very true as God can only help us if we are prepared to listen to His inspirational parental guidance. God loves us all equally.
By praying at least once every day – more often if possible – you will soon be able to establish a very deep and personal relationship with God.
