Quotes Worth Pondering – Paul Miller


Here are a few quotes by Paul Miller from his book A Praying Life – Connecting With God in a Distracting World

“Learning to pray doesn’t offer us a less busy life; it offers us a less busy heart.”

“We have an allergic reaction to dependency, but this is the state of the heart most necessary for a praying life. A needy heart is a praying heart. Dependency is the heartbeat of prayer.”

“Sometimes when we say “God is silent,” what’s really going on is that He hasn’t told the story the way we wanted it told. He will be silent when we want him to fill in the blanks of the story we are creating. But with His own stories, the ones we live in, He is seldom silent.”
