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.

Meet Paul E. Miller
Executive Director

How does seeJesus serve pastors? It’s easy in ministry to lose your first love. Having trained pastors now for 30 years, I’ve noticed how often youthful ambition gives way to cynicism. It’s a cancer of the soul. My prayer is that if you immerse yourself in our training and material, your love for Jesus and the church will grow. 

I’m interested. Where should I start? SeeJesus wants to first be a catalyst for restoring your soul and then for equipping your congregation. We are serious about getting your people on the front lines. While you can simply order materials through our website, I encourage you to attend or host one of our equipping seminars.

Paul is Executive Director of seeJesus, a global discipleship ministry which he founded in 1999 to help Christians and non-Christians alike “see Jesus.” Since that time, Paul has taught more than 100 seminars, written a dozen interactive Bible studies, and released three books focused on seeJesus’ core themes: the person of Jesus, love, and prayer. Paul loves to tell stories—most of which start with his own failures and mishaps and end with God’s faithfulness. Paul is married to Jill, who is known for her sense of humor and faith. They have six children and 12 grandchildren and live in the Philadelphia area.
 
In 2001, NavPress released Paul’s first Bible-study based book, Love Walked Among Us, weaving together stories of how Jesus loves with stories of his own struggles to love. Paul’s 2005 release of A Praying Life (NavPress)—a book for “badly-praying Christians”—achieved instant bestseller status and was followed by A Loving Life (Crossway, 2009), a study of love through the book of Ruth.

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
