Hello friends! Today is a pivotal day in our “Radical” series. It’s our hope that we would all choose to say, “I will pray the Jabez prayer each day for the next YEAR!” I can’t even begin to imagine the impact it would have on us as a church if we would all spend the next year asking God to pour out His blessings on our church, families, businesses and dreams.
The Radical Prayer we’re looking at today has been written about in the bestselling book, “The Prayer of Jabez” by Dr. Bruce Wilkinson. This prayer and book were pivotal in the life of our church back in 2001, and we’re eager to make it a priority again in 2011.
If you’ve never read the book, stop by the Next Step Bookstore and pick up a copy. It’s very inspirational and instructive as you read how this prayer has impacted millions of people. While you’re in the bookstore, go ahead and check out the Pastor’s Picks for this series. You never know when one of these books may ignite a spiritual fire in you.
We’re so glad you’re all here today and may you sense God’s presence during our time together.
