Be all you can be, for God

"With 321 minutes of Bible-based teaching, this powerful set is perfect for study groups, for personal growth, or whenever you need some guidance and a little extra push in your relationship with the Lord.
Dr. Wilkinson mentions the many misconceptions that surround his message; "The Prayer of Jabez" is not about asking God for a new car and a promotion, it's about getting one's life in line with God's will, and there is nothing wrong with asking for a blessing, as Jesus told us to do in Matthew 7: 9-11, " much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask". Nevertheless, there are those who claim Dr. Wilkinson's message is not Biblical, seemingly not having knowledge or understanding of what his message really is.There is a wide range of topics, and some are hard-hitters, especially in the last session, when he talks about how sin can creep in and ruin your life; lust, pride, and the danger of the desire for possessions, "for those who desire to be rich fall into temptations and a snare" (1 Timothy 6: 9-10), are discussed in depth.
Another subject is "stepping out of one's comfort zone", a topic that I believe is essential, and most of all, hearing and obeying God's will, where our primary aim should be "my will is choosing to do Your will".Dr. Wilkinson is a dynamic speaker, and also has a good sense of humor. I have read all his books (my favorite is "Set Apart"), and heard him lecture in person, but consider his video teachings the most significant of all his work for those of us seeking a closer walk with the Lord.
The production values are excellent, and at the start of each tape there is a dramatization of Jabez that is quite effective, with some lovely music by Julie Larson.
A word of caution: There is a time lapse between "Sessions", so don't stop the tape too soon ! The "Sessions" are broken into the lines of the Jabez Prayer:
Session One: "Bless me indeed !"
Part A and B: On how to come to God, and the variety of blessings in scripture.
Session Two: "Enlarge my territory !"
Part A and B: Moving beyond the comfort zone and doing more for God.
Session Three: "Put your hand on me !"
Part A and B: Learning God's power and purposes.
Session Four: "Keep me from evil !"
Part A and B: How to stand firm against temptation and Satan.There is so much content in these sessions that it would take countless viewings to absorb it all, and is the kind of teaching where one will hear new things as one grows with the Lord. So take the "Jabez challenge", and perhaps you too will find your life revitalized and radically changed by God's mighty will for your destiny."

"I loved the book and it did change the way I pray. I loved it! This DVD is unbelievable. Bruce is an incredible communicator and is able to convey both content and emotion in a most powerful way. I just cant recommend this DVD enough. It is full or grace and love. It it will challenge you and inspire you to pray for The Father's fullest in your life so that HE can make you a blessing to this world HE gave so much for.
As they say, Dynamite comes in small packages, well here is ample proof. This is a treasure chest of life impacting and relationship deeping lectures. This DVD is over four hours long so you are getting your money's worth no matter what. I initially rented it and loved it so much I bought here and have been lending it out.
Take my advice get this and be blessed and changed as your prayer life is changed with depth and purpose and knowing the character of your heavenly Father. GOD bless JB"
Better than the bbok

"This DVD goes way beyond the book. Dr. Wilkinson adds a great deal of pathos to the excerpts from book, and he also spends time dealing with many of the myths associated with The Prayer of Jabez. The prayer by itself is not a magic bullet, but a personal committment to deepening one's prayer relationship with God can lead to a blessed life."
Bruce is a gifted teacher

"Bruce is a gifted teacher. This class was so special to me, I finally decided to take a Bible Study class and this was it. Bruce is an amazing speaker, easy to listen to. After the class where Bruce was teaching us to enlarge our territory ( on Thursday ) that Saturday the police came to our front door and informed us that our oldest daughter - Lisa - had been killed in a car crash. Boy did I need the class I has just taken. At the funeral I got up with my husband in front of a full church and spoke. That was an enlargement for me, and the lesson from Bruce gave me the confidence to do it. Blessings from Jesus to all of you."
