The Circle Maker
Give your prayer life a 360. Bigger prayers bring bigger results. Join us, and bring your prayer life full circle. Learn from pastor and bestselling author Mark Batterson how to claim God-given promises, pursue God-sized dreams, and seize God-ordained opportunities and through it all bring glory to God. In this four-week series participants gain a deeper understanding of prayer and, in turn, make a more consistent practice of prayer.
The Circle Maker gives participants new vocabulary and methodology to pray with a holy confidence. It will help participants dream big, pray hard and think long. According to Mark Batterson, “Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn’t just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It’s a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us.”
This series begins on Sunday, August 5. We invite to join us on this journey to make our prayer life more fulfilling.
One of the best known passages in the Bible is the 23rd Psalm. It is likely that everyone has heard this psalm at least once. This psalm is just one of the 150 psalms in the Bible. The Psalms cover all of our human emotions. As we read them, we can relate to them because they convey in poetic terms many of our feelings. Some praise and honor God for who He is and what He has done. Some express doubts about the goodness and care of God. Some are full of angry at people and the things they do. In other words, they were written by people like us. For the Jewish people, the book of Psalms was a prayer book and a song book.
Our Wednesday evening Bible study is looking at some of the Psalms that speak to our live today. We have found that the issues the Psalmist faced hundreds of years ago are the same issues we face in our everyday lives. Recently, we studied about the tears the Psalmist shed because of a difficult situation. That same week a couple in our Bible study had lost their new puppy and they could not believe how God used the psalm we were studying to encourage them. We invite you to join with us on Wednesday evening at 7:00. Who knows, God may speak to you in the same way.
