Confident?

  |  0 Comments

Paul MillerIf you are not praying then you are confident that time, money and talent are all you need in life. You’ll always be a little too tired, a little too busy. But if like Jesus, you realise you can’t do life on your own, then no matter how busy, no matter how tired you are, you will find the time to pray.

A less busy heart

  |  0 Comments

Paul MillerLearning to pray doesn’t offer us a less busy life; it offers us a less busy heart. In the midst of outer busyness we can develop an inner quiet. Because we are less hectic on the inside, we have a greater capacity to love… and thus to be busy, which in turn drives us even more into a life of prayer.

Functional Deists

  |  0 Comments

Paul MillerMany Christians haven’t stopped believing in God; we have just become functional deists, living with God at a distance. We view the world as a box with clearly defined edges. But as we learn to pray well, we’ll discover hat this is my Father’s world. Because my Father controls everything, I can ask, and he will listen and act. Since I am his child, change is possible and hope is born.

If God is Sovereign

  |  0 Comments

Paul MillerIf God is sovereign, then he is in control of all the details of my life. If he is loving then he is going to be shaping the details of my life for good. If he is all wise then he’s not going to do everything that I want because I don’t know what I need. If he is patient then he is going to take time to do all of this.
When we put all these things together – God’s sovereignty, love, wisdom and patience – we have a divine story.
