The Legend of Honi the “Circle Maker” has impacted my prayer life significantly. During this 21 day fast I’m learning that bold prayers honor God and God honors bold prayers. God isn’t offended by your biggest dreams or boldest prayers. He is offended by anything less. If your prayers aren’t impossible to you, they are insulting to God. Why? Because they don’t require divine intervention.
It’s imperative during this 21 day fasting journey that you come to terms with this simple yet life-changing truth: God is for you. If you don’t believe that, then you’ll pray small timid prayers. If you do believe it, then you’ll pray big audacious prayers. And one way or the other, Your small timid prayers or your big audacious prayers will change the trajectory of your life and turn you into two totally different people.
Prayers are prophecies. They are the best predictors of your spiritual future. Who you become is determined by how you pray. Ultimately, the transcript of your prayers becomes the script of your life.
During this fast determine to answer the question that I believe God is asking you: “What do you want me to do for you?” Be specific. Be bold. Be amazed at what God will do as you begin to infuse faith into your prayers. I am believing with you for great breakthrough and miracles this year. Remember, If God be for you, then who can be against you! Pray circles around your biggest dreams and greatest fears and watch what God will do!
