1st Presbyterian Hosts Prayer Seminar Feb. 7-8

Thursday, January 23, 2014

First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga is hosting a prayer seminar on Feb. 7–8, featuring Paul Miller, author of A Praying Life and Love Walked Among Us and The Person of Jesus.  

Registration is available online at www.seejesus.net  or by calling the church at 423 267-1206.

Space is filling up quickly so register today.

This seminar is not for victorious Christians, but Christians defeated in the trenches, asking, "How do I focus when I’m distracted with so much to do? How do I pray longer than five minutes? How do I ask when I’ve tried it before and it doesn’t work?"

The seminar is intended to help attendees delve into their frustrations, and look at Jesus’ powerful, yet simple teachings on prayer; to practice becoming child-like, patterning after Jesus’ own teaching and style of praying. It will teach attendees to learn to ask the Father anything – with eyes wide open to the story he is creating in the lives of his followers. Further practical tools and helps are explained and demonstrated. Throughout the sessions people have time to pray, making real what they learned.

After graduating from college, Paul taught in inner-city Christian schools in Philadelphia for 10 years. With a group of parents, he started Spruce Hill Christian School (K-8), an inner city, multi-racial school where he was principal and teacher.

In 1983, he helped his father found World Harvest Mission, serving as associate director from 1983 until 1996. From 1997-1999, he completed an M.Div.at Biblical Seminary and founded seeJesus, a mission that helps Christians and non-Christians alike “see Jesus” through inductive Bible studies.
