“Paul Miller refuses to separate the spiritual life from the rest of our daily living. In A Praying Life, he shows the difference that constant communication with Christ makes in the everyday experiences of life, especially the life of the family. Reading this book will help you make prayer a more important part of your own life story by integrating prayer into the daily routines of life.”
— Philip Ryken, senior minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church (Philadelphia, PA); author of The Message of Salvation
“In my library, I have perhaps twenty different volumes on prayer, but none captured my heart or propelled me into fresh communion with our Father as much as A Praying Life. Finally, a book that applies the radical implications of the gospel of God’s grace to prayer! With childlike wonder, sage-like wisdom, and heartfelt candor, Paul shows us that to pray is to see Jesus more clearly and meet him more regularly in every single aspect and moment of the day. Thanks, my friend, for calling me back to what really matters.”
— Scotty Smith, pastor for preaching, teaching, and worship, Christ Community Church (Franklin, TN)
“The timely word and work of Paul Miller has had a profound effect on me. Now with A Praying Life, here he is with another right-on-time delivery! This book reveals that the secret to a prayerful life is an active understanding of the stories you are living. In every story a prayer; in every prayer a story.”
— Charlie Peacock, singer and songwriter; codirector, Art House America; author of New Way to Be Human
“Like many Christians, I struggle to maintain a meaningful prayer life. Too often my prayers are hurried, shallow, and perfunctory. In A Praying Life, Paul Miller has provided an inspirational and helpful resource for all of us who want to pray better. Paul uses compelling stories, solid scriptural support, and insightful spiritual principles to first explain the nature of prayer and then to provide practical suggestions on how to pray. You will enjoy reading this book and then, I think, marvel at how much more meaningful your prayer life can become.”
