This book is the guide to the CD, "Prayer does it make a difference"? It is a must have if you're doing a book or a bible study using the CD.

Lots of questions and review. Hard to get through everything in a small group setting with limited time.

This Guide is very well laid out for class/small group discussion which is a huge help for the group leader. The page for participants to take notes while the DVD is playing helps people stay focused. The Discussion questions are thought provoking, not simplistic. The Bible Exploration section then takes the discussion beautifully into Scripture. The remaining sections in each week's study offer additional substance for group discussion and for personal study at home during the week. This is an absolutely EXCELLENT study; fantastic for any Sunday School class or Small Group. Instead of people shying away from a prayer study, they'll flock to this one! Make sure you have the companion DVD!

Yancey obviously did a lot of research for this. He writes as a real person who struggles with puzzling aspects of prayer.

I like Philip Yansey's books and this one is no exeption. His books have a fresh outlook on the subject he is writing about.I am looking forward to use this book for my private Bible study.

The Prayer Participant's Guide is an excellent accompaniment to the DVD series. We have been showing the series in our adult Sunday School class and have had very good class interaction using the questions from the Guide.

Great summer study. DVD is thought provoking and the guide has led to lively discussion. Recommend the hardback book for those who know in advance they will be missing one or more sessions. Would highly recommend this provocative study on prayer.

I am using this with a large group in a women's summer study. We will use the DVD and paperback in class and for independent study and the hard back as a supplement to those who will be missing several sessions. The topic is stimulating and Yancey is exceptional with his presentation. Sadly our discussion does not cover all of his questions due to time restraints. I think all the women will reap terrific benefits from this 6 week session.

Please note that the participants guide is NOT a study guide that goes with the book(eventhough the title and cover are the same). It is it's own free-standing study that requires the DVD that goes with it.I have no true rating, as I did not do the study, but am reading the book instead.

Contains many Scripture references which can be used helpfully for prayerful meditation, as well as space for journaling and other thought-provoking questions and activities.
