Ask Big | Joel Osteen

When we pray and release our faith—when we ask God to work in our lives—our asking opens the door for His great work in our lives. But, we have to ask. Jabez prayed a bold prayer to God in 1 Chronicles 4:10. Despite his upbringing and surroundings, he dared to ask God for His blessing. “Oh, that You would bless me indeed.”

  1. Gentle Blessings to all of you from Little Joe Lewis from Mississippi. I believe Joel Osteen can present the Bible so well. His childhood Sunday School teacher and I have prayed many times on the Lakewood Prayer Line. Little Joel was a really good preacher's kid growing up. He was destined to be a leader in spiritually in America and the Earth. Bless you Joel and all of your household.

  2. Lakewood Church please pray for my Mormon friends because the Mormons have had Iconic influence in America all across American History too. I know Joel and his daddy used to be Baptist. I was too. I'm simply a believer–aren't we all by now. Covid-19 and Jesus to make us seek miracles, knock for miracles, and ask for miracles! Amen Joel.
    Gentle Blessings to You All at Lakewood,
