Thousands of people have already experienced the movement of A Praying Life—from reading the bestselling book by Paul E. Miller or attending a seminar at a local church. 

This seminar is not for victorious Christians, but Christians defeated in the trenches, asking… How do I focus when I’m distracted with so much to do? How do I pray longer than five minutes? How do I ask when I’ve tried it before and it doesn’t work?

Delving into our frustrations, we look at Jesus’ powerful yet simple teachings on prayer. We practice becoming child-like, patterning after Jesus’ own teaching and style of praying. We learn to ask our Father anything—with eyes wide open to the story he is creating in our lives. Further practical tools and helps are explained and demonstrated. Throughout the sessions people have time to pray, making real what they learned.

What has been surprising over your years of working with A Praying Life? Everyone struggles with the same things when it comes to prayer! It doesn’t matter if someone is a successful ministry leader in the US or a farmer in the third world—the struggles are still the same. 

What do you enjoy about leading prayer seminars? People are excited about engaging the Father from the heart and on a practical level without all of the guilt or feelings of inadequacy. Discovering or rediscovering that God is vitally interested and takes great joy in relating to you, your heart, and your situations needing his help gets people praying again. People crave a genuine walk with God; it’s great to see it!

What People Are Saying

“The A Praying Life Seminar is the most practical training in prayer possible, yet it is rooted in biblical theology. I highly recommend it.” 

Rev. Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York, NY

"The impact of the seminar continues to be felt here at Chessington Evangelical Church. In fact, we have been led on from it to write a church purpose statement, to re-shape our values and write a bold vision statement."  

Pastor Gareth EdwardsChessington Evangelical Church, London

“The ripples this seminar sent through our community have been lasting and significant. Perhaps no more so than the renewal in uninhibited dependent prayer. For Australians who breathe the air of cynicism, a great number of us have been drawn back into prayerfully being a part of God’s story.” 

Pastor Karl PacholkeChrist Community West, Brisbane, Australia

“Your teachings on prayer were the best I have heard. Most importantly, I have begun to pray more and more effectively. God is continuing to teach me about conversing with Him. Thank you for this precious gift.” 

Bill Mauney, Elder & VP of Retail Management, Great Outdoor Provision Co.
