A prayer

We all have different styles when it comes to praying. Most of us pray directly to God just saying our wants and wishes, or asking for forgiveness or healing; but other people are more inclined to recite sets of prayers from a novena booklet. I guess I've always done the former more often nowadays. :)  Because as much as I've wanted to go to St. Jude in Mendiola (my fave saint), I can't seem to find the time, sad to say..

As I was cleaning my room the other day, I found an interesting book (which I forgot I have!) I bought several years ago at a popular bookstore. I was in a deep rut in my life at that time and so when I read this at the back of the book: "Do you want to be extravagantly blessed by God?" I just had to read it.

The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson

This book has taught me a simple yet powerful prayer:



A prayer that will bless your life

The author challenges us to make this Jabez prayer for blessing be part of the daily fabric of our lives. And guess what...I'm planning to do just that...again.
