Publisher's Summary

Based on his New York Times best seller, The Circle Maker, Mark Batterson shows ordinary parents how to become extraordinary influencers in the lives of their children.

Mark Batterson shares a perfect blend of biblical yet practical advice that will revolutionize your prayer life by giving you a new vocabulary and a new methodology. Through stories of parents just like you, Batterson shares five prayer circles that will not only help you pray for your kids, but also pray through your kids.

You'll see how prayer is your secret weapon as Batterson teaches you how to:

  • Create prayer lists unique to your family
  • Claim God-inspired promises for your children
  • Turn your family circle into a prayer circle
  • Discover your child's life themes
  • and more

As Batterson says, "I realize that not everyone inherited a prayer legacy like I did, but you can leave a legacy for generations to come. Your prayers have the power to shape the destiny of your children and your children's children. It’s time to start circling."

This is one of the best books I've read in years.

although it's only one and a half hours. This book is very dense and I love it because it quickly goes through key topics and points without drawing out and taking hours to make a single point.

This book is a work of God's anointing.

I cried during different chapters because of the testimonies. They just blew me away! I loved learning how big my God is TODAY in the lives of those whom believe. The testimonials, the scriptures, the praying parenting tips- it all just came together so well and as a result I really felt moved to elevate both my prayer life and the way I read the Bible. I'm pumped to pray circles around my family with specific scriptures in the will of God and for his glory. #gamechanger

Encouraging and powerful!

What a wonderfully encouraging and inspiring book! On a personal level a longstanding question for me, has been circled with a promise I never before saw in the Word.

Thank you Mark for a powerful insight and practical ways of making a lasting difference for generations to come.
