The Praying Life by Paul Miller

Author Paul Miller shares his insights and conclusions about how to connect the broken pieces of your life and allow prayer—even poorly delivered—to fill the gaps with meaning and substance.

Miller's down-to-earth approach and practical nature will help you see that your relationship with God can grow and your communication with Him can get better.

Parents will find Miller's family-life experiences especially helpful.

“A great book on prayer…biblical, practical, readable…This book will help you generate a culture of prayer both in you and those around you.” --Dr. Timothy Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church; author of the New York Times best seller The Reason for God

“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.” --Dr. Philip Ryken, President of Wheaton College; author

“In my library, I have perhaps twenty different volumes on prayer, but none as so 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

“What a refreshing book! If you're tired of religious prayer games and rote prayers that stop at the ceiling or if you have suspected that God was on vacation somewhere, this book will change your life. And if you're thinking about giving up on prayer, don't! At least not until you've read this book. When you have, you'll thank me for recommending it to you.” --Steve Brown, Professor, Reformed Theological Seminary; teacher on the syndicated radio program Key Life

”Honest, realistic, mature, wise, deep. Warmly recommended.” --J.I. Packer, professor of theology, Recent College; author of Knowing God
