What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Excellent audiobook on prayer!"

    One of the best audiobooks I have read and listened on prayer. The part on praying as a child is worthy rereading (relistening) more than once. A Call to Spiritual Life by Don Carson will be an excellent book to compliment this book in regards to praying Biblically and Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung to correct the listening to God bit.

    "A book to get deeper into God's life"

    I've read this book twice and am now listening to it on two different devices. Every time I get a chance to listen to a chapter, I glean something new or am reminded of a truth that astounds me about this relationship Jesus offers us!

    A praying life is essential to living life well. Paul Miller's honest and conversational dialogue clears away the clutter the so easily gets in the way. The narration can at times feel a little monotone but overall it helps in the reflection of the words themselves. I am not an audio learner so the challenge of some vision loss has made me rely on this sense more. This audiobook has not disappointed. Two thumbs up!

    "Seek and Find our Lord Jesus Christ in Prayer"
    Would you listen to A Praying Life again? Why?

    This book has changed my life. I have been a Christian for over 25 years, but I have always struggled to have a meaningful, consistent prayer time. Now I look forward to communing with my Heavenly Father in prayer. Prayer is a joy and privilege, not merely a responsibility. The teaching and author's tone in this book gripped my heart and were made effectual by God to change my life. May He use this book to draw many into intimate communion with Himself.

    "Life Changing"

    I have always struggled with my prayer life. I so want to fellowship with God and have on many occasions. However I felt as if I was doing it all wrong and God was shaking His head as I prayed. As I read this book it was if a bird was freed from its cage. My heart feels free and bold to bring God into my battlefield of life, my hang ups, my struggles, my blessings, my disappointments ... He wants to hear it all and will answer in ways that benefit me most. Sometimes that means telling me no, the way I respond to His no is giving me the opportunity to be molded into someone who resembles Him. I love it!

    I have listened to over 200 books, half of which are "Christian". This would be in the top 5.

    "One of the best books I have read"

    This book was incredible. The author weaves theology with practical insight. This book touches on almost all walks of the Christian life to include prayer, suffering, and loving like Jesus. What a great message- there is no magic or secret way to pray- we pray because we desperately need God in this broken life.

    "Miller makes good points"

    I don't know if there's anything out there better than this. It is a pretty practical book about prayer. Miller does not simply say that we should pray more, stating the obvious. He advises the reader to have a designated time and place to pray, he gives a practical method for beating your child like in our prayer, he explains how to react when prayers aren't answered, and he has a few tricks (praying out loud, journaling, using prayer cards) that can help rejuvenate your prayer life.

    I have definitely had longer, deeper, and more frequent prayers as a result of reading this book.

    "Must read for those who want to improve prayer life!"

    This book covers just about everything you struggle with in praying and provides solutions to help you get intimate with Your Father. A very deep and insightful book to say the least.
