A Praying Life by Paul E. Miller, book review

A Praying Life is my first review of any of Paul L. Miller's work and I must admit the title attracted me very much. Like all of us I often struggle with just finding the time to pray. There are so many distractions, our lives are so busy, we simply forget the joy praying can actually bring.

I do not entirely agree with everything Paul E. Miller writes in his book but there is much more positive than negative in his statements and altogether, it offers much by way of guidance.

He first offers a kind of Kindergarten through 12 format which makes sense: baby steps are exactly the way we start our lives. Throughout the book you will find his approach getting however more and more detailed and finally in my opinion very helpful.

In the end I found myself intrigued and I can only say this book challenged me in many ways. I particularly liked the following:
"At the center of prayer is God, carving me in his Son's image". That's something I can understand.
How about this question? "How would you love someone without prayer?" I am still working on that one!

A Praying Life is definitively inspirational and practical. It will certainly help you to improve your prayer life and give you a much closer relationship with God. I will certainly add it to my family library and I give it 4 stars.

I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
