Readers like 'The Prayer of Jabez'

Many say it's right on

I didn't agree with "Pray like Jesus, not Jabez" (December, page 11). I've prayed the prayer of Jabez for several months, not asking for specifics. God knew I needed a new kidney and blessed me with one--for which I was the only match in the country. The prayer also asks, "Enlarge my territory," which means "send people to me that I may share Christ's love with or help them spiritually." Your article's author has missed the true meaning of this little prayer hidden in the Bible.
