Draw The Circle: A Book Review

About The Book:


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 Timesbestselling 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.

My Review:
After recently reading The Circle Maker and Praying Circles Around Your Children, I was very excited when Draw The Circle became available for review through BookSneeze (Zondervan's Blogging Review Program).
The book takes you on a 40 day journey like no other. You will be challenged like never before in your prayer like. While some of the information is repetitive of the original book, it was a nice refresher too. It has definitely shown me new ways to look at praying for others in your life. I absolutely have loved how easy each chapter is to read (only about four pages each) and yet how challenging it is too. As you read through Draw The Circle, you will be encouraged and inspired to dig deep and develop the prayer life you were meant to have all along. You will learn to pray specifically and fervently, and it will definitely help you to grow closer to God in the process. With prayers, scripture and personal stories included, this book will be and encouragement to all who read it.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
BUY IT: You can purchase Draw The Circle online through Amazon. It is also available locally at your favorite bookseller, from Zondervan.
