This post is for Ginny Hartzler, who wanted me to expound a little, and for the several others of you who had similar questions.

Draw the Circle is a 40-day Bible challenge I have done several times over the years, and recently felt led to do once again. Each day has a short Scripture, a true story of God's answer to prayer, and prayer prompts, to inspire and encourage us to pray bold, persistent prayers, believe God can do all things, and be observant to see how He is working,

Basically, I read the chapter for the day, write my prayers down in a journal, and then draw circles around them. There's nothing magical about the circles. It just helps me be more persistent.

Nobody joined me this time around. Seems like everyone I invited was too busy. But that's okay. I don't mind doing it on my own, and something new that was not available before, is a daily video you can sign up for that corresponds to the chapter of the day. The videos are short--only about two minutes each, and they are free.

I've enjoyed going back and reading the old journals I kept when I took this challenge before, and seeing how God has responded to those prayers. Many have been answered, although not all of them in the way I thought they would be, and some prayers I am still praying for. 

Well, I hope I've answered all your question.

Be blessed,



  1. Thank you so much for the explanation!

  2. I love that you have kept your journals and go back to see the answers to prayers. Isn't that the way it is? Answers yes, no or still to come?
    Keep on , keeping on...

  3. This sounds so good, "Each day has a short Scripture, a true story of God's answer to prayer, prayer prompts, and an encouragement to observe how He is working."

  4. I've heard this is a good book. I'll have to look for it.


Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed your visit and found something to make your day a little bit brighter.
