A Forgotten Key to Maximize Impact

“Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.” 1 Chronicles 4:10

When we get to work, we usually jump into the work. That is why we are there – to work. As we so often get quickly consumed with the work, we easily forget the key ingredient to maximize your impact throughout your marketplace.


But it is more than traditional prayers. We so often ask for so little, just enough to get by because we feel selfish or greedy, or heaven help us, may be stepping into actual Kingdom prosperity.

For today, though, I. simply exhort you to pray BOLD prayers just like Jabez. His prayer is a fantastic model of a petition not for personal gain but for impact. He cried out – that is – SHOUTED from his gut – for God to bless his work.

Now don’t start running around your run shouting out a prayer to “bless me indeed.” I want to stay employed!

Yet I do exhort you to petition the Lord several times every workday to do His mighty works through you.
