Superb again Derek. I believe that there is a bit of Jabez in us all and I can see that we can imitate him in the regards of his humility, which by the way, reminds me much of you my brother for which I thank God for.

Derek Hill May 3, 2013 at 4:02 pm

Thank you brother! This article was a privilege to write and I learned a whole lot while writing it. It is amazing how much knowledge can come from such a short little prayer. God bless you!

Hey, Derek. I have a question. I’m on holiday in Whitby and my parents and they say I have to go to the amusements with them. In case you don’t know, amusements are where you put coppers in these arcade machines, and if your lucky, you get loads of coppers spilling out onto a tray. Which is gambling in a way. When I’m at the amusements eventually, (caps coming up) WHAT DO I DO??? Thanking you humbly, Jack H

Derek Hill May 3, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Hello Jack. That is a great question! God expects us to use the money we earn wisely. After all, everything you and I own comes from God, including money. With that being said, we all use money for entertainment and other things that aren’t necessary parts of life. I don’t see a problem playing these a few times. The problem arises when you are addicted to these gambling machines and want to keep trying. Gambling is an addiction and it devastates families with divorces and other problems. So, I would say if you have an “addictive personality” to STAY AWAY from these. If you can play a few times and then quit, I don’t see an issue with it. I hope this helps you. God bless!

I am, I am so so amaized that really that u think, is Gods will and He will answer u immediately. Man of God i dont know what pushes me to yr website bcos i didnt know about it i only goodled asking questions only to find u Men of God. I thank God for this. You are my angles both of u. This morning when i woke up i was thinking of asking question about gambling. As a child of God i suffered a lot raising kids alone but it was before i recieve Jesus Christ as my Lord and my savior. I went to an extent of falling in love with gambling and i was winnhng even though it was not big money. Now since i recieved my Jesus this spirit is still in me and it hurts me so much bcos i was to give my yearly harvest but i couldn’t, all my money is been swallowed by the machines. I dont know what makes me not to stop when i see my money been swallowed by the evil. Men of God, i dont want to go back there pls pray for me. I am really hurt but i told satan that he will never get my money again. Really i can see that God is with me by letting me open Jezabel prayer. God bless u n yr families. S Africa

Hello Rebecca. I don’t think that God will answer our prayers immediately. God answers our prayers whenever He sees fit. It is up to us to stay trusting in Him while we wait for His answers. I will definitely pray for you and for your gambling addiction. You are very wise to stop this habit, as you have seen the negative effects already. When temptation comes, run away from it. Prayers are on the way! Bless you!

DAVID MWANGI May 13, 2013 at 2:28 am

The article about the prayer of jabez has made me almost cry especially zephaniah 3:17.i never knew God rejoices over us with gladness.i recently gave my life to christ and this site has been a major help esp when am in doubt like now.may God bless you

Derek Hill May 13, 2013 at 5:46 pm

Hello David. I was so excited the first time I read Zephaniah 3:17! Just like you I was taken back at the fact that God rejoices over us with singing! We serve an amazing God and I am glad that you are drawing closer to Him through this site. God bless you!

Philip July 15, 2013 at 9:01 am

David … i found Zephaniah 3:17 when helping the youth praise band at church learn “Mighty to Save” by Hillsong … check it out … i honestly forgot Zephaniah was a book in the Bible before that song inspired me to go find it … like the Prayer of Jabez, it’s easy to miss

Derek Hill July 30, 2013 at 10:34 am

Speaking of easy to miss, I totally missed this comment LOL! I love Zephaniah 3:17! It is one of my favorite verses of the Bible. It is amazing to ponder our God singing loudly over us! We have an awesome God!!! Bless you Philip!

Praise the lord brother.
Thank you for your message on prayer. From many years I was waiting for Lords reply for his call on my life. I was a evangelist since 10 years. I am not able to get Govt jobs and asking lord to help me. So many times I question my self and asked god to give reply. While I was reading this scriptures I learned so many things from your Bible study. Thank you and pray for me so that I can get Government job to get financial assistance to the Lord’s work here. God bless you.

Emmanuel Olajide July 8, 2016 at 12:50 am

I just searched for the story of Jabez and found this really amazing. I was so absorbed with every word in the passage and despite my inadequacies, I believe the lord will help raise my faith in him and work for him. I am very optimistic that the bible verses will never leave my hear again.

May God continue to increase your strength, dear Derek.

Femi Ojo November 25, 2016 at 5:27 am

I am at present believing God for divine direction for my life and intervention in my family. I pray my family know more of God and His wisdom. Thank you Dereck and God bless you!

Christie July 20, 2018 at 3:00 am

Thank God for showing me the direction to this site, I have been enquiring from my husband where the story of Jabez is in the bible until he told me to ask Mr Google. Indeed my spirit is lifted. To God be all the Glory and I believe He is going to intervene in my own story in the mighty name of Jesus.

Tara pressley December 31, 2018 at 1:15 am

I believe in this prayer a lot I know that God knows are hearts and our and where we stand in life I know that he sits high and look low and that in our time of need he wants us to call on him and to walk in he’s likeness.we all have pain and sorrow that we can handle our self’s and need him to lead our way of life I say this prayer everyday so that God can show my life favor.I am bring my aNew Years saying this prayer and asking God to take this pain of the world that I bore without him and to increase my way and understanding. Thank you for breaking down this prayer

Thanks be to our Lord Jesus Christ the beginning and end of life. Jabez answer came through the covenant which exist between he and the Lord.
Any covenanted child of God prayer is answer faster because you base you request on the covenant. Therefore, Brenden I’m Christ Jesus have covenant with your maker.
