Draw the Circle: The 40-Day Prayer Challenge


Week Five - The Ripple Effect
Reminder: Watch this video the week of May 19 - May 25

In this, our final session for this study, we'll see how our prayers can have an exponential, never–ending effect; not only on us personally, but on nations and generations that will follow. Get ready for some great encouragement to dream big, pray hard and think long!

Scripture of the Week

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
~Ephesians 3:20-21 (NIV)

Discussion / Journaling Question

We sincerely believe this five-week online study will encourage you into a deeper prayer lifestyle. Let us encourage you, after watching each weeks' video teaching segment (and reading the corollary readings in the book and study guide if you've purchased those); to review the discussion/journaling questions we provide below. If you're doing this study "solo", let these prompt you in your prayer time, as you journal, or simply to ponder during your study time. If you are in a group setting for this study (face-to-face with others, or via social media or online tools); you may wish to discuss these with others in your "group".

Questions to ponder, journal, or discuss with others enjoying this study with you:

  1. Do you keep a prayer journal? Should you consider starting if you don't already? (We tend to forget what we should remember and remember what we should forget.)
  2. Why do you think God wants us to be specific in our prayers?
  3. Have you ever prayed a prayer that you're glad now that God did NOT answer? What was it?
