According to Pastor Mark Batterson in this Zondervan ebook, 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.

    Insightful book that deals with the struggle we all experience in our prayer life. God blesses our faithfulness when we persevere through our fears and shortcomings. We need to take the first step of faith and God will use us in ways we've never imagined.
  • This book is heretical.

    I have little to say but this: This book is heretical. Read the Bible

    This book encouraged me to look at prayer in a different light. The art of prayer should be mastered above all other spiritual skills. Now to apply…..
  • Circle it!

    By GioAlmaraz
    I am facing a sentencing before the land. I am facing a tag given by society. I am facing an unknown future. I am facing a lost career. I am facing a financial turmoil. FEAR? I think so, but I know …differently. I have no idea what the future holds, but I know HIM who holds the future. This is an amazing book that has increased my faith to Dream big. Pray hard. Think long. We circle so many things with utter confusion with no direction, lost. However, hope rings in with the Circle Maker. My miracles start with locking myself in my room, circling chalk around myself, and allow a revival to burn within me and out of me. There are many miracles that I am circling. But I have learned the value of Prayer and Work, Prayer and Time, Prayer and Tears, and Prayer and Power. My wife and I are circling our promises, our challenges, and our miracles. Not one prayer is rejected by a sovereign God who wants nothing but the best for you. What you pray today, may not be answered tomorrow, but it will ring into eternity where He will wipe away every tear from my eyes. There will be no more death or sadness. There will be no more crying or pain. Things are no longer the way they used to be. He who was sitting on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down. You can trust these words. They are true. Rev 21:4-5. I believe it! There is NOTHING God cannot do! In Gods amazing supernatural power, not only will you receive your miracle, you will reap what you have not sown. CIRCLE IT!
  • Rejuvenates your prayer life

    By LLLLH1
    This book is going to be one of my constants that I both reference to others and look back on during my times of doubt! I absolutely loved all that Pastor Mark spoke on and felt immediate gratification in my faith and prayer life upon reading this book. I feel blessed to have been made aware of such empowering literature and can only hope every other Christian comes across this! God Bless!
  • Changed my Life

    Mark Batterson is truly fulfilling his calling. In writing this book, he has impacted my life and those of my friends. I highly recommend this book
  • Must read for those who struggle with prayer

    By Pschwitz
    Circle maker has truly changed my life. I always knew that praying was important but never really believed it actually could change things. Mark Batterson shows how and why prayer is the life blood of the believer. His approach is practical and more importantly doable. My wife and I have already seen God move miraculously by praying circles. Prayer has now become an exciting adventure. God is awesome ! Thank you, Mark!
  • Life changed to the Foundation

    By Gib with friends
    Every good relationship has one thing in common, good communication. A month into working on my communication with God, I found this book. Not only were the things God had laid on my heart as new habits given biblical and real world explanations, but I was challenged with a whole lot more. I am now walking circles, getting on my face and standing still; all while journaling, interceding and asking for intercession. Prayer life changed for the better for eternity!
  • Awesome

    By Future author of Ghetto Coated
    Lovely! My prayer life is like breathing it keeps me living. Now I know to breath the same breath a million times. Recycled breaths are future miracles. Thank you for blessing me and my children with this masterpiece that is called a book.
  • Right on time

    By CBU07
    As mentioned multiple times in this book, it's more of a prayer then e-book. I love that there is so many testimonies of how when people uses process, there are results and movement of the Lord. Never once did he try to put the power in his own hands about what he has achieved. The book is a easy read and so blessed that my pastor introduced this book to our congregation. Do yourself a favor and just get the book and enjoy watching that movie life.
