We took the challenge… Will You?

The forty-day prayer challenge is going to change your life. In fact, the next forty days have the potential to dramatically alter the rest of your life. Mark Batterson’s book, Draw the Circle: 40 Day Prayer Challenge, is a follow up to his book to The Circle Maker.  The 40 day prayer challenge invites the reader to experience the power of bold faith and prayer.  The first week of summer I drove to Alabama and listened to The Circle Maker on audible.  I loved the encouragement to pray persistently, confidently, and expectantly.   So many of the stories reminded me of times I had heard Dr. Falwell share stories of walking and praying over the mountain that would become Liberty University. Five of my friends decided to take the 40 day challenge together.  Everyday we read the challenges and texted our prayers trusting God to work in each of our “prayer circles”.  We all had specific things we were committing to God. Do you ever feel like God is trying to teach you something?

Prayer Circles on a chalkboard

There is a chalkboard in our house with names – dreams – and things we are specifically praying. A playground and the people in G’Mala are in the “prayer circle” of a group that has been praying daily. Praise The Lord as today we turned in all the money for a playground to be built in July in Pueblo del Rio. God is so faithful!!! Answers to prayer build my faith in the One who calls me to seek Him for the other circles on my chalkboard!
