We're looking to add a tool to your fast that I know will help you grow in prayer and will be an aid in your fast.
We'll be offering our congregation four video sessions with author and pastor Mark Batterson. This four-session video-based study will help participants gain a deeper understanding of prayer and, in turn, make a more consistent practice of prayer. It will give viewers new vocabulary and methodology to pray with a holy confidence. It will help participants dream big, pray hard and think long.
The four video sessions combine a teaching element with a creative element to draw viewers into the circle. Through this combination, participants will gain old theology and new methodology for prayer. The four-week study will not only revolutionize the personal prayer life of each participant, but together the group will form a prayer circle around each other’s challenges, opportunities and dreams. Each session wraps up with a practical application called “Draw the Circle,” giving participants the opportunity to put the prayer principles they have learned into practice.
Session 1: Becoming a Circle Maker
Session 2: Little People, Big Risks, and Huge Circles
Session 3: Praying Hard and Praying Through
Session 4: Praying Is Like Planting
I'd like to invite you to pick up a copy of "The Circle Maker" book and read it during the 21 day fast.
Also beginning this Sunday in the gym, during either of our morning services, you can attend 4 video sessions related to the book.
You can also join the Tolley Home Group where you will be spending the first 4 sessions of their Life Group viewing the videos. You can also attend Vicki Young's Wednesday night Life Group in room 240.
Circle Fast guides are available, as well as other resources for school-age children and youth at the table in the lobby.
We also are encouraging you to join "The Circle Maker" group on The City and share your experience there.
Can’t join us on Sunday, or Wednesday or attend the Tolley Home Group? That’s ok…you can view the 4 video sessions at rightnowmedia.org. All we need is a valid email address to send you a link to join our church’s account. It’s free and there are over 1,000 other video sessions on this site you can access and view as well. Send your request for an e-vite to this address.
I can't wait to see what all God will do through this upcoming fast in the lives of our congregation!
