Product Description

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?

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 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. Hardcover.

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.

Publisher's Weekly

In his latest book, Washington, D.C., area pastor-author Batterson (In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day) says his method of talking to God “has the power to revolutionize the way you pray”—and he just might be right. Yet this method isn’t packaged with hipster edge or a 10-step strategy. Batterson uses timeless knowledge and tales that predate Jesus to urge the reader to simply drop to his knees. Beginning with the Jewish legend of Honi, who drew a circle around himself and prayed for rain, Batterson examines the answered prayers of several “circle makers.” The circle metaphor is applied loosely throughout the book (e.g., walking in prayer circles, praying in a group, praying repeatedly for a concern), making it accessible in multiple situations. At times Batterson’s excitement manifests as cutesy bumper sticker–like phrases, and he spends much of the book recounting his own church’s miraculous growth. But readers will fall for his intensity and encouragement to pray “tenaciously.” The unearthed technique will have readers drawing prayer circles around everything from buildings and news to their own hopes and dreams.

    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!
