Jay Dennis invites you to participate in an experiment that can change your whole outlook on what God can--and will--do for and through you. It starts by meeting an obscure Bible character named Jabez. Buried in the "begats" of the Scriptures, "Jabez means "my pain"--but in God's eyes, the name stands for a man who dared to pray a big prayer that got even bigger results.
Like Jabez, most of our lives are forged in difficulty. We see ourselves at best as minor players in God's kingdom. But God sees us in a very different light. The Prayer Experiment will open your eyes to just how much power and impact your plain, "ordinary" life can have.
Praying the prayer of Jabez has transformed Dennis and his congregation. It can do the same for you. All you need is a willingness to commit thirty days in exchange for a lifetime of possibilities. This is no formula, no name-it-claim-it approach. Filled with illuminating, often humorous vignettes, The Prayer Experiment is an inspiring invitation to pray in a way that breaks you out of the status-quo into new, untapped realms of faith, vision, and radical Christian living.
In God's hands, your life is bigger than you ever imagined. How big? Only God can show you--starting today, if you choose. The biblical guidance is here, along with application questions for each chapter. Now can be the time you begin a prayer experiment that will lead you to a God experience.About the Author:
