A Biblical Model for Praying for Growth

We all have different goals and dreams.  Some of you want to build a business to provide a part time income that gives you the ability to stay home with your kids, help with the bills, or to travel  more and have no interest in growing beyond that point.  

Some of you though… you have big dreams for your biz!  

If you have been a believer for at least ten years you’ve probably heard of a little book by Bruce Wilkinson titled the Prayer of Jabez.

If you haven’t heard of it or if you never got a copy of your own to enjoy, I highly recommend it.  

 The book is based on this verse in the Bible:

1 Chronicles 4:10 (KJV) reads:

“And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.”

If you Google the Prayer of Jabez you’ll find quite a few opinions both good and bad – but you can’t argue with the Bible on this.  Jabez prayed for blessings and God gave it to him!

Don’t let anything stop you from crying out to God about your business and all of its related needs.

God equips you to run your business, if you’re doing what He has called you to do he will certainly be faithful to provide you with the tools and resources you need to make it profitable.
