Critic reviews

"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!

Very practical

This book is a very practical guide to prayer. I was very challenged to deepen my intimacy with Jesus through prayer.

This will change your prayers

This book gives a different perspective on prayer. Very inspiring. Ask like a child. I learned to make prayer cards. Pray with a Bible verse corresponding to whatever I am asking God. Be in the look of God weaving a story for an answer to my prayers. it's Beautiful.

Authenticity is so needed!

Paul Miller opens up his own prayer journal and prayer life, showing us all the messy crevices of his life and how he turned them over to God in prayer, and then the answers that he saw. i learned so much from his vulnerability. It's not a "10 steps to an effective prayer life" book, but a humble "This is what God has shown me through years of struggle." Highly recommend this book. The narrator sounds thoughtful and contemplative, and does a good job.

A GameChanger

For me, this book took me to my next level in my personal relationship with my LORD and SAVIOUR.
