Call on God

By Dr. Phil Wilkes () on September 24, 2017 as part of the God Empowered Living series
A man named Jabez (his name means “pain” or “hardship”) calls out to God with specific requests. His prayer is very different from the name and claim it prosperity gospel preachers. This message examines the 4 requests of Jabez as he calls out for God to work in his life. It’s implied in the text that Jabez was a man of prayer. It seems that he already walks with God. He makes prayer his first resort, not his last. Jabez wants to be able to serve God, have greater influence for God with other people and asks God to remove those things that could hinder his effective service to God. It’s a picture of one man putting himself in God’s hands trusting God to do good work in his life.
