Wings [Week 7]
There is no question, as I land on Week 7 of our kick-off series outlining 8 drivers of growth, that prayer is not only the most underutilized tool for growth, but also the most powerful. I can only tell you my story and the life changing impact prayer has had for me, not only through transition, but in my never-ending pursuit to be the very best husband to Lauri and father to my four children.
Praying circles for and with my family was never given a second thought; however, never before did I pray circles around my biggest dreams and greatest fears [in my profession!]…until I read Mark Batterson’s book, The Circle Maker. So I prayed circles around how God would use me in this next chapter, aligning my gifts towards helping and serving others.
And boy did God ever show up!
In just the last few months, from being blessed with an adopted, healthy newborn to launching a new business, you can only begin to imagine how His love has poured over our family. Not to mention, incredible clarity and focus on our purpose as a family and how my business might impact others.
Not only will I never stop taking my boldest dreams and ambitions to God through endless prayer circles, but I am now praying circles around my clients and their business.
God showed me something I never knew I had before.
You may not know it yet, but you have them too.
