A Praying Life
Connecting With God in a Distracting World
We all know it — prayer can be hard. In fact, prayer is so hard that most of us rarely pray unless an illness, or a public setting, such as saying grace at a meal, demands it. Prayerlessness is rooted in a core unbelief that can shape our lives, even as Christians. Because of prayerlessness, our lives are often marked by fear, anxiety, joylessness, and spiritual lethargy.
If prayerlessness marks your life more often than not, then this book is for you. Paul Miller writes to the heart of the matter. This book is for any Christian who wants to know the joy and power of a vibrant prayer life.
“Honest, realistic, mature, wise, deep. I highly recommend A Praying Life.”
— J.I. Packer
“This is as fine a book on prayer that you will ever read, but it is so much more. It is the story of our struggle to actually live like we believe that our Heavenly Father really does love us. Paul exegetes our struggle in a way that is convicting, insight-giving and encouraging. This is a book on prayer that actually makes you want to pray!”
— Dr. Paul David Tripp, Author of Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands and other books
“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.”
— Scotty Smith, Founding Pastor, Christ Community Church, Franklin, TN
“A great book on prayer – biblical, practical, readable. This book will help you generate a culture of prayer in you and those around you.” — Tim Keller
