Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! OVER ONE MILLION COPIES SOLD!

Get ready to make new breakthroughs in your prayer life, knowing that bold prayers honor God and God honors bold prayers.

Do you ever sense that there's far more to prayer 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 impossible prayer for his people. 

Sharing inspiring stories from modern-day circle makers plus his own experiences, Mark Batterson will help you:

  • Discern God's will as the first step to a healthy prayer life
  • Uncover your heart's deepest desires
  • Pursue God-sized dreams
  • Connect with God in fresh ways
  • And, ultimately, draw prayer circles around your family, your job, your problems, and your goals

This expanded edition of The Circle Maker also includes insights on how God answers prayer along with stories that add convincing proof to the reality that God is able to do exceedingly far greater than all we could ask or imagine.

"Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn't just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God," he says. "It's a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us." 

Also available: The Circle Maker Spanish edition, prayer journal, student and kids' editions, parent editions, small group studies, video curriculum, and more.

    " Sometimes you read a certain book at exactly the right time. The Circle Maker was one of those books. Written by my pastor, Mark Batterson, this book not only provides amazing insight into the rather miraculous origins of DC's National Community Church, but also offers a revolutionary way to think about prayer -- especially praying for The Big Things in life, and particularly when those Big Things don't seem to be happening the way you want them to, or according to your timeline. Will probably be re-reading sections of this for a while. "

    " Fresh inspiration for one's prayer life! I highly recommend this book. Very readable. Not dry or boring at all. He goes beyond "simply" prayer with an integrated approach to how it touches and is interwoven with all other aspects of life. In the final chapters Batterson goes into goal setting and how it functions with prayer as well. Thus, if one follows his suggestions, it will change your life in many spheres. "

    " While some of the examples of making circles are stretched (quail in the desert, etc.) I was very inspired to to pray a LOT more specifically. And the stories really did help to enlarge my vision of our almighty GOD and what we can accomplish when we are fully surrendered to HIM and dreaming BIG. "

    " I am having a difficult time with this book. The three circles idea is used in witchcraft, which Christians are told to flee from. Its more of "if you believe, it will come true" type book. "
