Product Description

In The Circle Maker, Mark Batterson introduces you to the possibility of a deeper, more passionate, persistent, and more intimate prayer life. Sharing powerful insights from the true legend of Honi the circle maker, a first-century Jewish sage whose bold prayer ended a drought and saved a generation, you will learn a new way to pray. Discover the power of bold prayer and even bolder faith in God's promises.

In Matthew 21, Jesus tells us, "If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." However, most of the time we pray, we only ask for the small things. We're afraid to ask for what we really want, or to be passionate in our petitions. Do you ever sense that there's far more to prayer, and to God's vision for your life, than what you're experiencing? What impossibly big dream is God calling you to draw a prayer circle around? Paperback.

Publisher's Description

According to Pastor Mark Batterson in his book, The Circle Maker, “Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn’t just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It’s a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us.” Do you ever sense that there’s far more to prayer, and to God’s vision for your life, than what you’re experiencing? It’s time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker—a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his prayers for his people. What impossibly big dream is God calling you to draw a prayer circle around? Sharing inspiring stories from his own experiences as a circle maker, Mark Batterson will help you uncover your heart’s deepest desires and God-given dreams and unleash them through the kind of audacious prayer that God delights to answer.

    The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson is not a new book at all. He published it back in 2011, and I had started to read it shortly after it came out, but I never finished it. I think that was because God knew I needed it right now and not because it was in any way a lackluster book. {This happens to me sometimes. I'll start a book, put it aside, and come back to it in the perfect God-timing. I've learned not to be irritated by it when I "can't" finish a book, because I know it means God has another plan.}

    If you're not familiar with this book, Mark introduces reasders to Honi, a first-century Jewish sage who boldly drew a circle in the dirt, stepped inside and prayed fervently for rain in the midst of a drought that threatened to kill an entire generation of people. Honi's bold prayers brought rain, and the concept of praying circles around everything from problems to dreams was born.

    This book is filled with examples of HOW you can pray. Not that they are the only ways to pray, but they might be ways you've not considered. From recording your prayers to be able to look through them later, to praying literal circles around things you desire, Mark offers very practical suggestions, and I practiced some of them in these past few weeks of praying for our house to sell. There is indeed something powerful about putting actual feet to your prayers.

    He also shares heavily from his own experiences of drawing prayer circles, sharing specifically and vulnerably about how those times strengthened his faith. I think many of his stories resonated extra with me right now, because they were based on real estate prayers, just like mine have been! {If you're not familiar with Mark, he's the pastor of National Community Church in Washington D.C. and the church has worked to purchase several prime locations in the heart of the city so they can use them for ministry centers. As you might imagine, acquiring those properties was not an easy task, and much prayer was required.}

    Mark is careful to say we should steer clear of "name it and claim it" type prayers or of treating God like a genie in a bottle, required to fulfill our wishes, but he also says that praying specifically and boldly often brings about miraculous answers we couldn't even have imagined.

    I came away from this book both challenged and encouraged. I'm excited to grown my own prayer life more and more. {I'm still reading the 40 day companion guide.}
