The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears by Mark Batterson …. This book is about a method of praying circle around your problems and dreams and a man named Honi, who the author calls a circle maker, from a time before Christ was born. He says at the being of the book that it will have you praying circles around any situation you are facing. The author gives examples of different people who prayed circle around their situations and results. The author used some examples of people bribing God and turn around and says we can't bribe God. I had a problem this and also with the fact that their wasn't scripture verses to backup this method. Deuteronomy 10:17 NIV
For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes
I believe, Jesus taught us the Lords Prayer in Matthew and also told us to ask and we would receive. The only thing that stands in our way of having prayers answered is our sin that we have not repented of, we need to come to God in prayer with clean heart and He will hear us.
I received a digital review copy of The Circle Maker in Edelweiss by Zondervan.
