The Circle Maker: Devotions for Kids Book Review

The Circle Maker: Devotions for Kids by Mark Batterson, begins with the legend of Honi, the circle maker. He drew a circle in the sand and stood in it with the intention of not leaving until God made it rain. Sure enough, it rained. Prayers should be like circles. You should not just pray once for something but over and over until the prayer is answered. This is the theme of this one-hundred-day devotional book for kids. Each devotional starts with a Bible verse followed by a devotional and then ending with a prayer. After that, there is a section where kids can write down their prayer requests that need to be circled in prayer.

            This devotional is ok but not the greatest devotional. It is ideal for kids about ten years and older. The message is pretty clear and repeats itself over and over: Prayers need to be prayed in a circle. In other words, pray for things repeatedly until the prayer is answered.

            I received this book free from Book Look Bloggers. All ideas are my own.
