Jabez (Discussion Questions)

Categories: Power of Prayer, Putting God First

Read I Chronicles 4:9-10

  • What is unusual about these two verses compared to the verses that precede and follow it?
  • What are the four steps of prayer?
  • How often do we get quiet and ask God to do for us what Jabez asked?
  • How often do we ask God to bless us, give us a better life, stay with us all the time, and keep us from evil?
  • If we do ask God, do we believe that He will answer our prayer? Or are we just asking out of habit? Or are we just hoping that God will hear us?
  • Do we ask for what we really need? Or do we just ask for what we think God could possibly give us (and thus, limit our concept of God)? Or do we ask for things that we don't really need and which won't really bless us?
  • Starting next month for the next four months, we will have articles on teaching the prayer of Jabez.
