Right now I am reading a book called "The Prayer of Jabez Devotional" by Bruce Wilkinson. It's about how much God loves us and wants to bless us. Maybe you want to give it a looky-loo?

Beware. There is nothing inherently evil in that book; i don't suggest anyone burn it. But it does shift emphasis from the words of Christ to an obscure prayer in the OT. Plus, i've talked to multiple people who've encountered Wilkinson personally, the consensus is that he's a self-aborbed demagogue looking to pad his wallet above all else.

He also believes that by praying the prayer of Jabez, you can literally force God to bless you, and if you don't pray that prayer, that God cannot bless you.

The book does not make those views manifest, just be wary of anything carrying Wilkinson's name. Word to the wise.
