Editorial Reviews

Review

I know there are a million, zillion books about prayer out there -- but this is really one you should sit with for a while, a long while. I learned an awful lot from it -- but more importantly, it actually motivated me to stop reading and start praying --Lauren F. Winner, author of Girl Meets God and Real Sex<br /><br />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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From AudioFile

With simple clarity Arthur Morey delivers the author's practical thoughts on prayer, emphasizing the commitment to and the practice of daily prayer. Miller says people make prayer their focus instead of communing with God and nurturing their relationship with Him while asking for His advice and help. He explores what motivates prayer, the practice of daily prayer, and the importance of praying alone, with boldness and honesty, as well as discusses prayer successes and difficulties and the crisis of faith that breeds doubt. In 32 chapters, divided into five parts, Morey explains Miller's views on childlike prayer, issues of trust, and "real-life" prayer. Listeners will find Morey's meticulous narration of Miller's honest look at prayer insightful and inspiring.

Paul is the author of more than a dozen interactive Bible studies and books, including the best-selling A Praying Life and J-Curve. If you read any of Paul’s writing, you’ll quickly see that he loves to tell stories—most of which start with his own failures and mishaps and end with God’s faithfulness.
