• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Unfinished Stories “Encore”

I posted this blog post several weeks ago.  I thought I would post it again, in an abbreviated format, as a sort of “encore” because of how the book, A Praying
Life
, impacted so many of us.  I would really love to hear your responses to the questions at the end of this post:

“I’m not sure there is any better way to finish our study of A Praying Life other than quoting from the beginning and end of Paul Miller’s final chapter:

In the stories I’ve told in this book, we can see God weaving a tapestry.  In my experience, as we abide in him, he usually shows us what he is doing.  But sometimes he doesn’t … We live in many overlapping stories, most of which are larger than us.  Each of us will die with unfinished stories.  We can never forget that God is God. Ultimately it is his story, not ours …

May the knowledge of the coming return of our King cause us to persevere with grace and courage in a “praying life”!”

I would love to hear your reflections on this book in light of these questions.  Please post them as comments to this post.  I will make a
summary of that feedback for a future post.

  • What has God shown you about “praying life” through reflecting on the chapters in this book?
  • How do you desire to grow and change in your “praying life”?

  1. I loved this book. My biggest take away was to pray about every little thing – and then watch God work. The idea of “pray first – then watch how God involves you in the working out of the answer” really changed my prayer life.
