Publishers Description In this six-session ZondervanGroupware video curriculum, award-winning author Philip Yancey probes the very heartbeat---the most fundamental, challenging, perplexing, and deeply rewarding aspect---of our relationship with God: prayer. What is prayer? How does it work? And more importantly, does it work? In theory, prayer is the essential human act, a priceless point of contact between us and the God of the universe. In practice, prayer is often frustrating, confusing, and fraught with mystery. Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? is an exploration of the mysterious intersection where God and humans meet and relate. Yancey explores such questions as: *Is God listening? *Why should God care about me? *If God knows everything, what's the point of prayer? *Why do answers to prayer seem so inconsistent and capricious? *Why does God seem sometimes close and sometimes far away? *How can I make prayer more satisfying? The Prayer DVD and Prayer participant's guide are available separately.

Yancey's book on Prayer a blessing Sep 29, 2009
I've really enjoyed this book and my college class has benefitted from it as well. I highly reccomend it.
Excellent Study Apr 25, 2008
I led this DVD study after completing '3:16 the Numbers of Hope'. There was no comparison. This study was so much deeper and better done. I highly recommend this study for a church or small group. Yancey has put time into this participant's guide/study to make it an excellent resource for learning to pray better.
Another thought-provoking book from Philip Yancey Jan 16, 2008
Good or bad, I'm probably biased because Philip and I were in school together. However, this book, like the many books Philip has written before, explores an aspect of belief normally left untouched or unanswered. Philip writes as most people think and expresses those thoughts carefully and logically. He does not give you answers but rather makes you realize the answers for yourself.
If you want a practical guide to the meaning and effect of prayer explored through Philip's eyes and those of others he uses as reference, this is the book you should read.
