Draw the Circle: The Forty Day Prayer Challenge Bye: Mark Batterson

  Synopsis: Do you pray as often and as boldly as you want to? There is a way to experience a deeper, more passionate, persistent, and intimate prayer life.
Drawing from forty days of true stories, Mark Batterson applies the principles of his New York Times bestselling book The Circle Maker to teach us a new way to pray. As thousands of readers quickly became many tens of thousands, true stories of miraculous and inspiring answers to prayer began to pour in, and as those stories were shared, others were bolstered in their faith to pray with even more boldness.
In Draw the Circle, through forty true, faith-building stories of God's answers to prayer, daily scriptures and prayer prompts, Batterson inspires you to pray and keep praying like never before. Begin a lifetime of watching God work. Believe in the God who can do all things. Experience the power of bold prayer and even bolder faith in Draw the Circle.

  Review:  This book really made me want to put to practice all I know about prayer and grow and stretch myself beyond anything I have before.  Each chapter was very short and easy to read daily. 

Prayer is not just prayers before bed or before we set down to dinner.  Prayer is a way of life.  Pray circles around the things in your life that are rough - pray circles around your marriage, pray circles around your kids, pray circles around your neighborhood, pray circles around your illnesses - a circle entrusted to God to work and not me.

I highly recommend this book.  It truly changed how I view prayer!
