Praying in Circles
So I picked up the book the circle maker. It seems a little offputting at first, but when you dig into it and realize the power in prayer it’s a little bit mind-blowing.
One of the coolest things I took away, is that God doesn’t want our vague or general prayers. He wants us to be specific. He wants us to be real with him. If we”re not, if we”re just praying in vague generalities, then it’s no big deal.
Karla and I are heading out on a pretty long trip to share the gospel through our ministry all across the country. And after reading I found that we have some pretty specific prayer request about God moving in lives of young people. One of the things we want to see is hundred’s come to know Christ. It’s through him and only through him, but that is the coolest part about it.
When I look back at the Old Testament and New Testament and see stories of people who are not ashamed but bold to pray and ask God for things, I see incredible miracles in their lives. It’s one of those things that we take for granted sometimes, Our God is still powerful God is still God of this university can do miracles in our lives if we ask if we allow him.
The author mentions circling Jericho, and the fact that sometimes we take our own plans into actions without God. But imagine what all the military strategist must’ve thought about people marching around the walls of Jericho. instead of invading with siege weapons, they marched silently around the city. They must’ve thought they were crazy, but they knew who was going to fight the battle. That’s what’s so awesome about following Christ we know who goes before us to fight our battles.
He has Overcome the World…
We know in scripture that things may be tough that this world may be too strong for us, but the best part is we know who has overcome the world.
Pray with us and for us as we seek to reach those who are lost around our nation.
