"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)
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!
While I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book, listening to the book has not been the same. The Narrator just does not capture my attention or the essence of the author IMHO.
I listen to this repeatedly. I need regular reminders that God hears prayer. Paul Miller's detailed explanations about seeking God while the force of culture often successfully negates the activity of prayer is an encouragement to serious born-again Christians. This is a pretty extensive prayer manual that cannot be fully digested in one reading.
The robotic voice used for this book takes all of the emotion and feeling out of the writing. I had to stop after a couple of chapters and purchased the physical book instead. The content itself, is WONDERFUL. I thouroughly enjoyed and experienced tremendous growth while reading and working through it. However, I absolutely cannot recommend the audio book - the way in which it's read is so strange and really distracted from the content the for me.
I love to read! I love reading even more now with my Audible account. I probably read two to three books a month. And, yes, I have a life!
I have been struggling in my prayer life, and this book helped to put me on track. I now have prayer cards. I still don't pray every day, but I prayer more sincere prayers from my heart. And, I'm much better now at confessing my sins.
Powerful, provoking, encouraging.
This book challenged me to invite God into my whole life, especially with the reminder that He loves me so much more than I love myself.
"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.
