In theory, prayer is the priceless point of contact between us and God. In practice, it’s often frustrating, confusing, and mysterious. Throughout this 6-session interactive journey, Philip Yancey explores this enigmatic intersection where we meet God, asking – and answering – key questions: Is he listening? What’s the point? Can prayer be more satisfying? The companion participant’s guide will help you benefit fully from the Prayer group format through discussions, Bible exploration, personal sharing, and group prayer. This study pack contains the DVD and participant guide in a shrinkwrapped package.


In this six-session 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.

  1. David

    We are using the DVD series in our Wednesday evening Bible study. The video portions are presented incrementally throughout the six sessions and each student is dependent upon a study guide (retailing for 9.99) to follow along in the flow of the study. If one has read in advance the book upon which this series is based, the material is more readily absorbed. It is a helpful study if the facilitator is able to keep the discussion alive. Much of the mastery of the content is dependent upon student completing out-of-class assignments and being prepared to share their insights with the group.

    I used this to lead a session of my Women’s Discipleship group. Yanceys style put us at ease and his honesty about his own doubts and discoveries encouraged participants to also let down their guard and be honest with each other. I loved the way he made prayer a thread that should run through our days. I knwo it changed the way we now pray. I liked the way the DvD has stopping points so that we can discuss what has “hit ” us to that point. Excellent!

    The DVD is high quality, easy to use and provides the visual power to the teachings. Phillip Yancey is clear in his speech and very engaging. Very inspirational material.
