Spring 2014 Network Article - Learn what inspired Paul Miller to start working on this study, A Loving Life.
“The A Praying Life Seminar is the most practical training in prayer possible, yet it is rooted in biblical theology.
I highly recommend it.”
— Rev. Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York, NY
What is A Praying Life Seminar?
The teaching from which Paul Miller wrote the bestselling book A Praying Life, the seminar immerses your church or organization into learning what it means to do all of life through prayer, in connection with their heavenly Father. The seminar looks not only at struggles in prayer experienced by people all over the world, but it also dives into how to invite the Father into all aspects of life. It begins with the recognition that none of us do prayer perfectly, and guides the participants in discovering how to connect with God in a distracting world.
This seminar changed everything about the way we do ministry.
- Pastor Jon Hori, Chino Hills Evangelical Free Church, CA

"After my wife and I attended a seminar in Lawrence, Kansas, we knew how important it would be, no, how necessary it would be to get the information back to our urban core. The individuals who attended our A Praying Life seminar with Bob Allums were as blown away as my wife and I were.
- Pastor Adrion Roberson, Kansas City, KS
What about follow-up?
Like any pastor or leader, you are probably concerned that this would be a "one and done," however wonderful, kind of event. We at seeJesus are working hard on our vision to see a movement of prayer throughout God's church. To that end, some follow up options include:
- Further seminars: With the Basic seminar, you'll get all the teaching to understand the paradigms, and we encourage further training through the Advanced and Intensive seminars.
- The creation of Barnabas Groups.
- Small group book studies: The A Praying Life Discussion Guide works hand-in-hand with the popular book, to get people to think further, in community, about what these principles mean.
