 Description: 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. This DVD explores prayer. Each session is approx. 15 minutes in length; includes leaders guide. Topics covered are:

•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?

Beth Johnston of Shelton UMC said this is an excellent resource, good for beginners and experienced Christians. Used with adults. Extremely useful in stimulating conversation.

Excellent video series that started a lot of good discussion. Not necessary for everyone to have companion book although group leader should have one. Philip Yancey is a thoughtful author and speaker. Cesie Scheuermann, Salem First UMC and Lay Leader of Oregon-Idaho Annual Conference. 04/11

Excellent series. Our adult Sunday School enjoyed it. Yancey honestly confronts problems in prayer and stimulates discussion. Beautiful scenery in video. Questions in study guide make class leadership easy. Jo Len Everhart, Bonners Ferry UMC. 07/13
