Devotional by Paula Sanders Blackwell
I love to read. Last year, I got a offer from bookbub, to download a free ebook. There were 6 offers but the last one was the book The Circle maker by Mark Batterson. I had never heard of the book so I read the description and downloaded it.
It has taken me almost a year to get started reading it. I started it but had to focus on writing so I didn’t finish it. A few months ago, I saw a friend’s post on Facebook about her experience reading the book so I decided to finish the book.
If you have never read the book I highly recommend it. It’s changed my entire prayer ministry. I’m praying differently and I’m accessing the power of God in a completely different way.
Pastor Batterson has taught me to circle my thoughts and prayer request for others. My intercessory prayers have been remarkable. And I’ve been waiting on some more answers to my prayers for other people. But what he’s reminded me is to claim the unthinkable prayers.
I’m praying for direction this week. I invite you to read my week 1 devotional from my book again this week. See what I mean and let’s revisit the impossible things that God can do. It’s mid year what blessings have you received this year so far? Let’s keep our miracle list updated.
I’ve learned how to restructure my prayers. I’m having some Jericho moments and I’m watching God work. It’s a wonderful blessing to see him answering my prayers for others. It’s even more beautiful to see him answer my prayers. Lesson learned.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
