A Praying Life: Connecting with God in a Distracting World by Paul Miller
From All Things Faithful:
For many of us, prayer doesn’t come easy. We get busy or distracted. Prayer can also seem confusing or even intimidating, especially if we are asked to pray out loud in front of family or friends. And then there are times when prayers seem to go unanswered and we become discouraged, pushing prayer to the back of our thoughts.
A Praying Life: Connecting with God in a Distracting World by seeJesus Executive Director Paul E. Miller can fundamentally change how we connect with prayer in our daily lives. One of the most practical books we’ve ever read on the subject or prayer, A Praying Life walks readers through a range of explorations – from learning to pray like children, to overcoming cynicism, to seeing how prayer connects our lives to God’s larger story, to practical tools anyone can use to bring life to their prayers.
Writing as someone who has himself struggled with building a rich prayer life, Miller uses personal stories and experiences to illustrate what a real, messy life can look like when it’s built on prayer. A Praying Life makes meaningful prayer as part of an everyday life seem attainable, and a prayer-less life unimaginable
If you desire to transform your prayer life, we highly recommend this book. You may wish you’d read it years ago!
