Here we are, friends! 40 days of crazy prayers. 40 days of circling. 40 days of encouraging each other along the way.
I had no idea what to expect along the way. I just followed the instructions and didn’t do the challenge alone. I found someone to go along with me. WOW! You guys jumped right in and started circling.
Very much like the disciples, we are learning every day and I still find myself asking God to teach me to pray. I don’t have it figured out and the desire to get closer to Him is stronger now than 40 days ago.
If we change the way we pray, everything changes. It changes the way we work, the way we parent, and the way we lead. It changes the way we prioritize and strategize. It changes the way we think, the way we feel, and the way we speak. Prayer changes everything from the inside out. (pg 222 – Draw the Circle)
Lord, thank You so much for changing us – from the inside out. I know that You have a mighty work for us to do. No matter where we are in our walk, Your presence is there. Help us to continue on this journey and never let us go back. Keep drawing us closer to You. Keep us on our knees. Keep us coming before You everyday. Give us a desire to want more of You.
Teach us to pray.
Want to continue daily encouragement until our next study?
Comment below and I will keep you on the team.
We are taking a break for a few weeks before we begin Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker. This study will involve 50 days of short readings and reflection. The start date will be determined soon and I will confirm orders in a few days.
I would love to hear from you in the coming weeks.
Some of you have let me know you need to catch up and that is just fine. Some want to go back and re-read parts of Draw the Circle or The Circle Maker. That’s what I am planning to do. The daily encouragement for the next couple of weeks will include highlights and stories from our experience.
Thank you again for taking this journey with me!
