This has been a huge blessing for me since I fall asleep when I read at the end of the day. I am able to listen while driving. Great idea and keep 'em coming.

"A Praying Life" by Paul Miller was the first book I ever listened to regarding prayer. It started off slow at first, but it was soon engaging and convicting. I admit I'm guilty of praying out of habit without really thinking about what I'm praying about or praying only when things go wrong. "A Prayer Life" really opened my eyes to what prayer is. Prayer is not only a time to praise and worship God, but also a time for self-examination. Why are we praying for a certain thing? Is it so we can have peace of mind or convenience? Is a person annoying or worrying us? We need to first look at our hearts to see if there is something that the Lord is wanting to teach us. Paul Miller uses personal stories, Scripture, and practical application to help one learn how to pray biblically. Arthur Morey, the narrator, reads pleasantly.I never really looked at prayer in that way, but praying with self-examination in mind helps humble the person who is praying and makes for a more sincere, deeper prayer life. More importantly, it deepens one's walk with the Lord.The one thing about "A Praying Life" is that I would rather read it than listen to it. Because of the applications contained in the book, it's easier to bookmark and/or highlight a section than to search for it via audiobook.After listening to "A Praying Life", I realize how much substance my prayers are lacking, and how much I need to work on my walk with the Lord.
