She also said that the spiritual book energized her and made her realize the importance of wrapping one’s dreams with prayer circles.

“After reading The Circle Maker, written by Mark Batterson, I felt re-energized and inspired. I was encouraged to find out that one of the ways in which God does tremendous things in us is through drawing prayer circles around our dreams,” said Mama Rachel.

According to Pastor Mark Batterson in his book, The Circle Maker, “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.”

He gives an example of the legend of Honi the Circle Maker—a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his prayers for his people. Sharing inspiring stories from his own experiences as a circle maker, Mark Batterson helps people uncover their heart’s deepest desires and God-given dreams and unleash them through the kind of audacious prayer that God delights to answer.

Mark Batterson was born on November 5, 1969, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
