A Praying Life by Paul E. Miller

A Praying LifeHow do I even tell you about this book? There's too much to say.  It is so rich with encouragement and challenge to develop a closeness with the Father. Author Paul Tripp states that this book makes you want to pray. It absolutely does!!

His honesty and transparency drew me in, making this an easy book to read. I found it hard to put down at times because I wanted to soak it all in.

When I closed the book I began to weep. The tears seemingly came out of nowhere, but I was so overwhelmed by a desire to have a life of prayer like Paul Miller describes that I couldn't stop the emotion from spilling out.  I'm tired of living so shallow. I want a closer relationship with God, one in which I can see Jesus taking my hand and walking me directly to the throne with Him;  I come to Him as a child with every need, every want, to learn to listen to Him, to receive His wisdom, to have hope in Him, and see Him move in me and in others.

My heart is full upon reading A Praying Life. If I could give a higher rating than 5 stars, I would.  I'm so glad that Tim Challies had recommended it on his website, and I'm especially thankful for my friend Judy, who put it into my hands.

  1. Ooh, yea! I got the book this week! I already love it even from the first few pages.

    And I finally ordered The Fear Factor. It came in this week, too. Can't wait to delve into it as well. My shelves are overflowing. Have you finished it or are you still working through it?

    I'm so thankful for Christian authors who share the Lord.
