In this six-session ZondervanGroupware(TM) 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.
