According to Pastor Mark Batterson in his book, 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.

I love the ideas in this book. This is a very good read. It is extremely encouraging to hear so many stories about how the power of prayer works and how God is always on our side. This book helped me in my prayer life and with my relationship with God.

This is an awesome book. People will be encouraged to pray big, dream big and believe big! I checked this book out first at the local library and renewed it a couple of times; eventually I purchased the book from a local bookseller. Yes, it's just that good!

Great Book. I will admit that I was a little apprehensive reading a book aimed at Christian development with a main story is not in the bible. That was completely subsided after Chapter 2.

Draw the Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge also by Mark Batterson is a great follow-up
