Who we are is determined by how we pray: with small, timid prayers, or big, audacious prayers. In this four-session preaching series and group study, Mark Batterson teaches how you and your congregation can claim God-given promises, pursue God-sized dreams, and seize God-ordained opportunities and through it all bring glory to God.
This dynamic four-week church campaign uses the story of Honi the circle maker, who prayer-walked his way around a devastating drought in first-century BC Israel until the rains came, to help you and your entire church begin to identify the dreams and future miracles to draw circles around to find your answers from God.
Four video sessions expand on the teaching from Mark Batterson’s book of the same name and combine a teaching element with a creative element to draw you into the circle. The participant’s guide provides teaching notes, discussion questions, Bible study, and between-session activities. Each session wraps up with a practical application called “Draw the Circle,” giving you the opportunity to put your prayer principles you have learned into practice.
