Paul Miller has written an engaging, transparent and practical book on prayer. His connection to his everyday life, filled with trials and tribulations (their daughter Kim struggles with autism and developmental delay). This ‘real world’ approach to prayer lends credibility and quality to the read. Enjoying prayer and our conversation with the Lord is what this book brings to one’s life – returning to a close walk with the God who loves us. In his easy to read style, Miller encourages us to ‘live in your Father’s story.’ By this he means “you can’t listen to God if you are isolated from a life of surrender that draws you into his story for your life.” In essence, this is what the five sections of this book does, using humor, pain and his real life adventures as a backdrop for our return into his presence. This may be one of the best books written on prayer in decades, since it combines sound Biblical truth and tested street leather application. I highly recommend this book and encourage you to pick up a copy for yourself and for a friend – this is a great book for a group journey deeper into God’s presence.
