The Circle Maker Student Edition: Dream Big, Pray Hard, Think Long. (Paperback)
Pray Circles Around Your Greatest Dreams and Biggest Fears
Prayer can sometimes be a frightening thing--how do you approach the maker of the world, and what exactly can you pray for? In this student adaptation of The Circle Maker, Pastor Mark Batterson uses the true legend of Honi the circle maker, a first-century Jewish sage whose bold prayer saved a generation, to uncover the boldness God asks of us at times, and what powerful prayer can mean in your life. Drawing inspiration from his own experiences as a circle maker, as well as sharing stories of young people who have experienced God's blessings, Batterson explores how you can approach God in a new way by drawing prayer circles around your dreams, your problems, and, most importantly, God's promises. In the process, you'll discover this simple yet life-changing truth:
God honors bold prayers; bold prayers honor God. And you're never too young for God to use you for amazing things.
Updated with discussion questions that tie to the Circle Maker video curriculum.
