Circle Maker Finale

Hey ladies, we did it, we have finished the book!!! It’s a wrap – woo hoo…

I have enjoyed spending time with you over these last 9 weeks of this study. I hope your prayer life is forever changed. I am here for you and stay tuned I will be posting updates from time to time until our next study in the Spring!

We had a few growth challenges during this study – I’ve listed them below, you can share them with friends and family. I love meeting God and knowing that no matter where I am He’s always there. I hope you made the commitment but no worries you can do challenges as your schedule permits. We also created our Life Goals List (see Chapter 15).

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.”
– Matthew 6:33 (NIV)

In our time together, it’s my hope that your prayer life has been forever changed and you have a more personal, vibrant relationship with The Lord.

Here's our growth challenges...

21-Day Prayer Challenge – starting today for the next 21 days. Identify a time you will pray every day. Then, pick a place you will go consistently to meet with God in prayer. Be sure this is a place you feel connected to God. Identify a specific person, promise, or problem you will circle in prayer every day for the coming three weeks. Be sure to keep this appointment with God every day and see what He accomplishes in and through you.

A Prayer Walk – if you have never prayer-walked before, use the directions below to help you get started:
 1.   Identify a specific location you know God wants you to pray for. You might even want to draw or take a picture of this place. It could be a home, workplace, school, community building, a block, or even a neighborhood.
 2.   Make a short list of three or four things you believe God wants you to pray while you walk around this area. It could be needs for specific people, salvation for those who are far from God, an in-breaking of spiritual strongholds, or anything else God places on your heart.
 3.   Plan to do your walk (on your own or with others you might invite along). Then go out and do it. You can pray silently out loud. If you are with another person or group and you pray out loud, others will thin you are having a conversation with each other. If you are alone, if you pray in a normal and conversational tone, people will think you are talking on a Bluetooth or phone! 
 4.   Keep prayers for these same needs and concerns after you have completed your prayer circle walk.

From verse 9 of Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, I encouraged us to do TWO things -

Call a Friend & Find an Accountability Partner

In it verse 9 states: “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.”

Our Final Circle Maker Challenge for this study…

Praying Through Your Calendar
Take time to pray through your calendar instead of just looking through it. It’s amazing the difference it makes when you pray circles round the people you will be meeting. It turns appointments in diving appointments. When you go into a meeting with a prayerful posture, it creates a positively charged atmosphere.

God answers every prayer, and He keeps every promise. That is who He is. That is what He does. And if you have the faith to dream big, pray hard, and think long, there is nothing God loves more than proving His faithfulness.

Many are the plans in a man’s heart but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.

Psalm 139:14, 17 Prosper and be in good health even as your soul prospers.

Be blessed and be a blessing,
