40 Day Prayer Challenge: What I Learned


paintings from challenge

So I am finally getting around to writing about the book I recently read called, Draw the Circle: The 40 Day Prayer Challenge by Mark Batterson. I made a challenge for myself in a previous blog post to read this book daily, read the Bible, journal my prayers, and create a painting everyday for 40 days.

While I would love to say that I completely stuck to these goals, I did not. There were a few days that I totally skipped altogether, and about half way through I stopped doing the daily paintings. Life just happens sometimes, and even though I didn't complete this challenge as I had originally planned, this challenge truly impacted my prayer life in such a positive way.

I just wanted to share a few truths that I learned about prayer that I didn't really grasp before.
