Draw the Circle

SERIES OVERVIEW:

HOW BIG IS YOUR GOD?

Is He big enough to heal your marriage? Is He bigger than a physician’s cancer diagnosis? Is He bigger than your addiction or a secret sin? Is God big enough to deliver on His promises and your dreams?

This series based on Mark Batterson’s New York Times Bestseller, The Circle Maker, shares powerful insights from the true legend of Honi the Circle Maker, a first-century Jewish sage whose bold prayer ended a drought and saved a generation. This series will teach you how to pray in a new way by drawing prayer circles around your dreams, your family, your problems, and, most importantly, God’s promises. God is still looking for circle makers who have discovered the timeless truth:

  •    God honors bold prayers because bold prayers honor God!


(1) BECOMING A CIRCLE MAKER: September 3, 2017


God loves to make promises. He invites us to draw a circle around His promises and pray until we see them become a reality. God is inviting you and me into the adventure of seeing His dreams come true in this world. This happens when we make the decision to become circle makers.

  •    Who you become is determined by how you pray.

(2) DREAM BIG: September 10, 2017


Can the dreams and prayers of one person really make a difference? Absolutely! God is bigger and more powerful than we can imagine. When our dreams grow as big as the heart and power of God, we begin experiencing answers to prayers that can be defined as nothing less than miraculous.

  •     All it takes is little people, big risks,and huge circles.

(3) PRAY HARD: September 17, 2017


Too many people grow weary and quit praying. If we want to see God’s miracles come true in our lives, church, and world, we need to persist in prayer, even when we grow tired, feel foolish, and think the situation is hopeless. Praying hard and praying through requires both praying and doing.

  •    Praying like it depends on God, working like it depends on you!

(4) THINK LONG: September 24, 2017


We live in a time when all the data in the world is available with the click of a mouse. Into our fast-paced culture God speaks and reminds us that prayer is a lot like planting. It demands patience, consistency, and dependence on the only One who can bring rain.

  •    Prayer is the inheritance we receive and the legacy we leave.
