Happy New Year! I’m sure all of you are excited about 2012. Our local church is currently embarking on a journey of prayer and fasting. I’m sure many of you are also spending some extra time praying for God to do great things in the new year. As you pray, I would like to encourage you to pick up a copy of the Circle Maker by Mark Batterson. I read the book over Christmas Break and it brought me to my knees. The book really changed the way I pray.
As you pray for your church, please remember to pray specifically for your children’s ministry. Remember the following points about Circle Makers…
- Circle Makers realize that God is for them. God has great things in store for your children’s ministry. Attempt great things because God is on your side.
- Circle Makers understand that God’s promises can be applied to their lives. As you read the Bible, think of promises that can be applied to your children’s ministry.
- Circle Makers define their requests. The pastor of one of the largest churches in Korea once said, “God doesn’t answer vague prayers.” As you pray for your children’s ministry, be specific.
Pray, lead with vision and expect God to do great things.
