Every Spring we like to do a church-wide campaign where all of the small groups at our local church do the same study together. We have found that by offering these campaigns, we can promote the small group concept and usually end up adding at least a handful of new small groups to the mix.
This year we have decided to focus on prayer and found the 40 Day Prayer Challenge from Mark Batterson. The 40 day time frame aligns perfectly with the Lenten Season and the marketing materials for this campaign are included with the curriculum kit.
Our group will be joining in the fun and kicking off the series in our group on 3/10/19. The goal will be to take a moment each day to focus on God. We loved Draw The Circle by Mark Batterson and this is simply a way to apply the principles covered in that series.
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 Times bestselling 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.Mark Batterson
