    YES! I love that book! Too bad I can't do the journaling/devotional. My hands can't write, due to my syndrome. :(

    I have the Prayer of Jabez too. I did my own study on this, while reading the book. I enjoyed the study.

    I have not seen this one. I will have to look for it.

    I promise I am not trying to be negative or a nasty critic, but listen up fans of B. Wilkinson. The guy has some problems with his theology, and I am a little surprised a bunch of Baptists would not see it clearly. I saw him speak last summer and it was truly a low point. The "prayer" of Jabez is a minor OT ref. That's it. Yes I know Scripture is, of course, inspired, but BW has really made too much out of a couple of verses (inspired to be brief, perhaps?). Oh, and that part about repeating the prayer every day and seeing how your life changes is TOTALLY unbiblical. Christ even says praying like that is akin to what the heathen practice. This is not an op-ed opinion piece, either...Wilkinson is incorrect according to Biblical standards of exegesis and that's the bottom line.

    I still say Bruce Wilkensin is a good author regardless.
