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 Christians who feel victorious, 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.

Meet Keith Grant
Development Associate and Trainer

Pastor Keith Grant used to spend his lunch break devouring A Praying Life in the parking lot of Home DepotKeith’s enthusiasm for the book quickly spilled over from that parking lot and into the church he pastors in the form of an A Praying Life seminar. Still hungry for more of Jesus, Keith took a deeper dive into Person of Jesus, A Loving Life, and The Love Course. 

Keith—who, in addition to pastoring at Riverside Community Church (Horsham, PA), has served as an actor, spokesperson, and corporate trainer—has discovered a happy marriage of his teaching gifts and his passion for Jesus in becoming an A Praying Life trainer. “I get to lead people to the feet of Christ and watch their eyes light up as they see him in new ways.” 

Where has God been at work in Keith’s life lately? Keith reflects, “God is turning me into a lover of people by giving me two ladies who remind me all the time that I’m a servant leader!” Those two ladies are his wife, Melissa, and their three-year-old daughter, Arden. Keith and his family live in Glenside, PA, where Keith also serves seeJesus as a development associate.

What do you enjoy about leading prayer seminars? 
The part I love the most is when I can see eyes of the participants begin to open and the "shackles" come off. There's an "aha!" moment people have when they realize how much of a burden they've placed on themselves when it comes to prayer. It's a joy to be able to lead them to a new love of prayer!

How has the ministry of seeJesus impacted your life? seeJesus has truly changed my life and, more specifically, how I now relate to people. To say I was relationally inept was to put it kindly. As a pastor, I know people are leaving the church each Sunday asking what these truths look like in their everyday lives. seeJesus has allowed me to bridge the gap between the truths I read in Scripture and what I live and experience in my everyday life, moment by moment.

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.
