    This was recommended by a friend in Bible College and the next thing we knew we were all reading it together. I usually do not do devotionals but I was surprised and a little disappointed when I opened my E-Book and found I had finished this one. Definitely makes you think and helps keep you encouraged.

    I am still in a study that will take an additional 38 days. So far I've liked what I have seen. It is a good study on prayer.

    This book drew me in, I found myself reading more than one chapter at a sitting. The short concise chapters made it an easy read. I was encouraged and challenged by the faith of the people in the stories the author shared. This book can challenge your prayer habits and perhaps help you change up your devotional time to become more productive and powerful. At times, I found myself rooting for the prayers that were prayed and found myself excited to hear how God answered those prayers, even it it was a not now answer. I too prayed a prayer and God answered with a challenge. The challenge is shared here on my other blog, 42kmfromhere

    While I have not read Batterson's Book "The Circle Maker" Which this book is a spin-off devotional. Overall, I would recommend this book to someone looking at strengthening their prayer life and perhaps their faith.

    I’ve read all of Mark Batterson’s previous books and appreciate his writing style. Several months ago I was able to purchase multiple copies of The Circle Maker to make available to some of our leaders here. Draw the Circle is a continuation of that book.

    In this offering, Batterson builds on the principles of The Circle Maker, but also includes stories and testimonies he has received from people who have read his book. He designed this book to be a 40 day devotional and it came at a good time for me as I was just finishing up a Bible reading plan.

    I have found Batterson to be quite quotable and my Kindle version of the book has a list of highlights from various chapters. While Batterson is a proponent of believers spending time in prayer, he doesn’t see prayer (or drawing prayer circles) as a way to get God to do what we want Him to do. In one chapter of the book, Batterson writes: “Sometimes the purpose of prayer is to get us out of circumstances, but more often than not, the purpose of prayer is to get us through them.”

    Just a few pages later, Batterson makes this statement: “If we’re being completely honest, most of our prayers have as their chief objective our own personal comfort rather than God’s glory.”

    Draw the Circle is a good resource for those looking to grow in the discipline of prayer. I found both Batterson’s words and the stories he shared to be both helpful and challenging.

    Draw The Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge, written by Mark Batterson, is a book centered around an ideology that was instituted within his previous publishing, The Circle Maker.

    Mark teaches his readers that, as they engage in a powerful prayer life, they will receive promises from God. These promises should be encircled until God brings then from concept to conceptualization.

    An example that is utilized to demonstrate the Biblical relevance of this ideology is found in Joshua chapter six. In obeying God, the Israelites encircled Jericho each day, believing that God’s promise of the walls coming down would occur as He stated on the seventh day.

    While some might feel this concept or ideology seems a little hard to accept, it is one that we might consider, at least to a reasonable extent. What is a reasonable extent? That is a question that we must answer ourselves, but we should not try to utilize this ideology to turn God into an answering service for our own personal desires.

    To recommend this book or not is a question I will answer. My suggestion is as follows: Take a moment while in your local bookstore to turn a few pages and decide for yourself.

    Dr. Jeff Krupinski
