Christian forums are increasingly being seen on the internet in recent times. This is a good trend as it is always a good thing to spend time on the word of God while you run around, owing to hectic work schedules. However, everyone is caring about their self and not thinking about other people who are missing these blessings. The prayer of Jabez is an important lesson to understand how to extend our territories while getting blessings from the Lord. God is always trying to bless people. However, most of us live in our own small world and do not share these blessings with others. Christian forums offer a good platform to reach out to people all over the world and spread the good news of Jesus Christ in an easy and effective way.

The prayer of Jabez is seen in I chronicles, chapter 4:9-10. Jabez is not a popular name in the Bible. I read on a Christian blog that the name of Jabez is not written elsewhere in the Bible. This is very interesting. However, the prayer of Jabez is very powerful. He asks God to extend his territories and bless him abundantly. It is written in the Bible that God has answered his prayers and blessed him abundantly. What is so special about the prayer of Jabez? It is according to the will of God. The almighty God always wants His children to multiply and be fruitful. When God created Adam, He asked him to be fruitful and fill the earth.

The same commandment was given to Noah after the floods. However, people tried to stay within their entities and build a great tower Babel. God had to change their languages to spread them across. Today, the prayer of Jabez is the need of the church. You need to extend your territories and reach out for people who haven’t heard about Jesus yet. Christian forums or Christian blog sites are a good way to spread this good news and extend your territories as prayed by Jabez.

It is always a good idea to be a part of a good Christian site or Christian forums to be connected with a network of spiritual people. While you get spiritual guidance and prayer support from believers all over the world, they offer you a great chance to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to unreached millions. Pray the prayer of Jabez and ask God to extend your territories to be a channel of blessings for many.

      I remember reading the book many years ago and it was a powerful influence on claiming territory through God's love and guidiance. Enjoyed your hub and thanks for the reminder.
