This was my first read from author/pastor Mark Batterson. I had heard people raving over this book, "The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears" for months and how it revived and renewed so many peoples prayer life. It wasn't until our church started selling the book that I to see what all the talk was about...and that was the end of it. Once I picked this book up it was almost impossible to force myself to put it down to even eat or sleep. It is the first book I have finished in a week in probably years!
When I picked this book up I reluctantly admit that my prayer life was in a bit of a rut. I was praying, but my prayers lacked passion and expectancy of answers. This book changed all of this vastly. After reading only 16 pages I was texting a friend telling them they had to read this book ASAP. In the first ten minutes of reading this book I was excited to pray and creating vivid, precise, God honoring prayers. This book was the driving force behind many of my 2013 goals daring me to dream bigger and have a God vision for my life.
Pastor Mark shares prayers of faith in this book that are encouraging, inspiring, and nothing short of miracles that were granted to him because he dared to dream God sized dreams and prayed with an expectancy for God to answer.
I don't recommend that you get this book the next time you go to the bookstore, I encourage you to click the link above and download it to your kindle or iPad or purchase the book right now. It is that good, I promise!
