Draw The Circle – 40 Days of Praying for the Country and Election

Happy September!

Later this month, I will be starting another read through of Mark Batterson’s Draw the Circle, The 40 Day Prayer Challenge. This time I will be praying for our country, our leaders and the election. Earlier this year I circled Ohio for 40 days.

I have a new copy of the book because the other one was so worn that I did not think any new words or thoughts would jump out at me.

Again I will be writing my daily prayer in a spiral notebook. The same one I used when I prayed for Ohio as there is a lot of space left in it.

I encourage you to get a copy of Draw the Circle and write a prayer after reading that day’s devotion. I believe writing out your prayer helps you increase your faith so you can live out the saying on the coaster below –

“Faith is not believing that God can, it is KNOWING that He WILL.

Thirstystone coaster I bought at Bed, Bath and Beyond many years ago.

I am not sure how I will handle these 40 days here on the blog. Weekend Wisdom starting the 26th of September will consist of quotes from the book.

Starting on September 24th, I will read the introduction and start with the Day 1 devotion on the 25th of September.

So join me on the 24th of September and pray as you feel led for this country, our leaders and the election.

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14

 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Romans 13:1
