When ordinary Christians decide to reach for an extraordinary life – which is exactly the kind God promises, they become gimpers for God."

A gimper, as Dr. Richard Seume explained, is someone who always does a little more than what’s required or expected.

"Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers" (l Chronicles 4:9). Jabez wanted to be more and do more for God, and-as we discover by the end of verse l0 – God granted him his request. ]abez is remembered not for what he did, but for what he prayed-and for what happened next.

Over the next few weeks, I want to introduce you to the amazing truths in]abez's prayer for blessing and prepare you to expect Gods astounding answers to it as a regular part of your life experience.

How do I know that it will significantly impact you? Because of the testimony of hundreds of people around the world who have applied these principles. Because, even more importantly, the Jabez prayer releases Gods powerful will for your future. Finally, because it reveals that your Father longs to give you so much more than you may have ever thought to ask for.

Just ask the man who had no future.
