“The ‘A Praying Life Seminar’ is the most practical training in prayer possible.  I highly recommend it.”

-Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, NYC

PRAYER is simply you – a child of a good Heavenly Father – making conversation and connection with Him in the rhythms of everyday life.  For most of us, many of us are quietly defeated in our private prayer lives.  We’ve tried praying, but it just doesn’t seem to work.  So, we feel a combination of frustration and guilt. 

In this conference, we will learn step-by-step how to begin a private life of prayer in fellowship with our heavenly Father.  We will learn, grow, and celebrate this amazing gift of prayer with the God who loves us deeply in Christ.  

This conference is not for victorious Christians, but Christians who often find themselves defeated in the trenches.  It deals with such practical questions as…

How do you stay focused when you are distracted with so much to do?

How do you pray longer than five minutes?

How do you pray when your own life is messed up?

How do you ask when you’ve tried it before and it “doesn’t work?”  

Learn to talk like a child to your Father in heaven.

    “A Praying Life does a masterful job of highlighting our heavenly Father’s disposition towards us, which ignites a fire to come to Him and pour our hearts out before him in honesty.  Our church will not be the same because of God’s grace to us through the A Praying Life Seminar.”
