Our Life Group at our church is in the midst of reading through and studying "The Circle Maker."
This book will teach you how to really pray for the things that you really desire and need. It will take you to a higher level of praying to God.
I also recommend The Circle Maker Prayer Journal. As you begin to write your prayer requests down and begin to circle them in prayer, you will begin to see God answering prayer. You will also have created your prayer list to continue your persistent prayers for your prayers that God has not answered yet.
I recommend The Circle Maker curriculum for group study, or for individual reading.
This was a wonderful book, as timely as it is inspiring. I wish I could give a copy to everyone I know and then force every elected leader to read it also. Don't just sit around and wait for God to read your mind, go to Him daily in prayer and be persistent in your prayer walk. Don't be short-sighted and expect things to happen on your time table but remember that God is always in control and trust that His timing is always the perfect time.
This is a great and uplifting book! It is a great book to give to others who want to find more ways to keep trusting and clarity on prayer and why we should pray! It is also a good book for people who don't have a deep relationship with God and would like to know more!
