What happens to prayers that have not been answered? Do they end, fade away, get stored in a prayer bank? Prayers matter to God because they are filled with faith and lasting life. They continue working and influencing even if we don’t see it, feel it or even remember it. In this last installment of the <em>Becoming a Circle Maker</em> series, our hope is that you will be inspired to never stop praying because your prayers never stop influencing God’s heart, the people we care for and our world.
<i>Many of us go through life hoping for better, but not experiencing it.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>When we live this way, it’s often because we’ve somehow missed God’s great invitation to boldly ask Him for better. Becoming a Circle Maker means circling promises, miracles, and dreams we long to see fulfilled and then boldly asking God to move in those circles.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span></i>
Do you believe dreams really do come true? Would it surprise you if we were to tell you God wants you to? Faith demands a willingness to take the risk of believing for what we don’t see. This is a form of supernatural, God inspired imagination. Dreams are a type of imagination. Dreaming of what could be, what should be is an ability God has given every person in order to partner with Him to see the impossible, illogical, unbelievable happen in our lives, the lives of those around us and the world. Dreaming is what becoming a Circle Maker is all about. This talk is designed to help you dream bigger than you ever thought possible!
Circling Prayer is exciting at first but soon becomes hard. We resolve to circle a request, get in the circle and refuse to leave until God comes through. Then the waiting begins ... why aren’t things happening? This talk unpacks several reasons why God doesn’t “seem” to be answering along with encouragement from God Himself to pester Him until He answers. Get ready to learn to pray through, all the way to breakthrough!
