As thousands upon thousands of readers embraced the message of The Circle Maker, true stories of miraculous and inspiring answers to prayer began to surface. As those stories were shared, others were bolstered in their faith to pray with even more boldness.
Draw the Circle shares 40 of those true, faith-building stories of God’s answers to prayer, along with daily scriptures and prayer prompts. It's the first forty days on your way to a lifetime of watching God work and believing in the God who can do all things, whether you are a beginner at prayer or an expert looking for fresh inspiration and encouragement.
Prayer changes things. It brings us closer to God and allows us to communicate with the One who loves us most.
When the need is so great, so seemingly impossible that only God's direct intervention will ever bring it about, it takes a different kind of prayer. Your 100 Day Prayer is designed to take you straight to the heart and will of God by seeking him for a specific need. This book includes:A dedicated page to express your need before God on the day you start your 100 day of prayer, 100 entries to help you focus your prayer through the truth of God's Word and character, Leading prayers to give you a jump start, Writing space to capture your conversations with the Father and the spiritual transformation you experience day by day, and A concluding page to memorialize how God answered your prayer and transformed you through the process. Your 100 Day Prayer will help you access the power of sustained petitioning prayer. You will find advice and encouragement for pleading one specific need. And you will discover that God does respond.

In today's Internet age of instant gratification, it's all too easy for Christians to "want it now" and expect the Lord to instantly honor Matthew 7:7: "Ask and it will be given to you . . ." John Snyder's excellent book provides a beautiful pathway to journal our 100 days of focused prayer as we are transformed in the process.
—David Pack, Saddleback Church/ Orange County, Calif. Grammy winning Recording Artist & Music ProducerIn this 100 day pilgrimage, Dr. Snyder has woven four great Christian traditions together—daily scripture reading, devotional insight, prayer, and journaling. You cannot practice these disciplines faithfully and emerge unchanged. I think that you will find when the journey has ended, that God has been your guide and your destination.”

Batterson teaches about how to create prayer lists unique to your family, claim God-inspired promises for your children, turn your family circle into a prayer circle, and discover your child’s life themes. And he not only tells you how, he illustrates why.
As Batterson says, “I realize that not everyone inherited a prayer legacy like I did, but you can leave a legacy for generations to come. Your prayers have the power to shape the destiny of your children and your children’s children. It’s time to start circling.”
