This year I committed to reading at least a book per month and I ended 2015 reading this book, “The Circle Maker.” This book has literally revolutionized my prayer life. Batterson begins the book by sharing insights regarding a legend by the named of Honi. Honi, had a prayer life like no other and you truly learned from his example. Batterson also shares a lot about his journey as the pastor of National Community Church in Washington, DC and how many of the things that have come to past are due to his bold and consistent prayers.
This book is so rich and inspired my current prayer circle of wives. We have all read this book together and now we pray for one another daily! If you find yourself in a rut with your prayer life! Get this book! If you find yourself wanting to learn more about prayer, get this book! If you are a prayer warrior already, get this book! If you found that there are certain things that you once prayed for and now you no longer pray for them because they have not come to past, get this book! If you’re afraid to pray for the big things, get this book! No matter what level you are on in life this book will change your life. It has now become a staple in our library and we will always go back to it for refreshers.
“Don’t just read the Bible. Start circling the promises. Don’t just make a wish. Write down a list of God-glorifying life goals. Don’t just pray. Keep a prayer journal. Define your dream. Claim your promise. Spell your miracle.”- Mark Batterson
