“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
”Prayer, the concept and the practice, exposes our core doubts and desperation for God. Paul Miller captures the promise of prayer as a gift that connects us to the heart of the Father and as a path for transforming the world. Paul Miller's honest struggle with living a life full of prayer and his childlike delight in hearing the heart of God invites us to gratitude and calls us to speak boldly to our God. This book will be like having the breath of God at your back. Let it lift you to new hope.” --Dan B. Allender, PhD, one for the founders and former President of Mars Hill Graduate School; author of To Be Told and Leading with a Limp, among others
“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. If we did, nothing could keep us from being committed to the day-by-day hard work of prayer. Paul Miller 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!” --Paul David Tripp, president, Paul Tripp Ministries; author of numerous books on Christian living
