The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears

According to Pastor Mark Batterson in this expanded edition of 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 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. 

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. 

This expanded edition of The Circle Maker also includes Batterson's newest 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.

Foundations of Catholic Social Teaching: Living as a Disciple of Christ (Encountering Jesus)

    chapter but for teachers and students to use as educational tools.
