Prayer of Jabez Boot Camp
For me the five lines of this one sentence prayer serve as five leaps of faith or Love Leaps that help me connect to a ZipLine of Love. While these five lines represented “Big Faith” for me, I was still missing day-in and day-out “Pocket Faith.” I needed something to reach for in those “Flea bite” moments when I lose perspective and faith in God’s will. I added three Love Lifts under each of these Love Leaps to serve as Pocket Faith and ways to connect daily to the ZipLine. The Prayer of Jabez Boot Camp was designed to cover one Love Lift a week for fifteen weeks. These Love Lifts are what I reach for when I misstep and need to reconnect. They are practical, tangible and lead directly and quite naturally to a Fun-Loving Life.
Prayer of Jabez
Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your hand would be with me,
and that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain!
(1 Chronicles 4:10 NKJV)
