Thursday, June 22, 2017 A Praying Life: Connecting with God in a Distracting World by Paul E. Miller, © 2017 NavPress, previous edition published 2009 My Review: This will not be a quick study for me, to ponder and apply directly to my heart. There are added Notes in the back referencing chapter content. Jesus' example teaches us that prayer is about relationship. When he prays, he is not performing a duty; he is getting close to his Father. --A Praying Life, 35 Morning and/or evening to gather with Him ~ upon awakening or reflecting on a new day ahead. A reference to praying aloud helps me to become more aware of my need. Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. ~ Psalm 143:8 As I begin journaling, I will see what He has specifically for me; to be able to look back and see progress in yielding. Time in prayer makes you even more dependent on God because you don't have as much time to get things done. Every minute spent in prayer is one less minute where you can be doing something "productive." So the act of praying means that you have to rely more on God. (37) Beginning five minutes; just meeting alone with Him. Regardless of how or when you pray, if you give God the space, he will touch your soul. God knows you are exhausted, but at the same time he longs to be part of your life. A feast awaits. (39) I love this! Prayer and Grace multiplied. The very thing you were trying to escape––your inability––opens the door to prayer and then grace. (47) I am looking forward to enJ*O*Ying application of growing deeper in God's Word. I want to know Him more. When you open a door to God, you find some amazing treasures inside. (49) I have mentioned parts that stood out to me. I have wanted a consistent time with God beyond touching base throughout the day. I am glad I have become aware of and connecting with this helpful instruction to learn to expand time God has already provided for me to enjoy Him and His presence. ***Thank you to the publisher for sharing this print copy with me.
