From the Back Cover
This participant's guide will help you to understand, personalize, and apply the powerful, life-changing concepts described in the six video sessions of When God's People Pray Small Group DVD. It includes questions to think about, session outlines with room for note-taking, discussion questions, Bible studies, a prayer journal, and more.
Prayer can change lives and circumstances like nothing else can. What are the keys that unlock its power, that turn prayer from a mere activity into a vital link with God and all his resources? In When God's People Pray, Jim Cymbala, pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle, shows you and your small group truths about prayer that God has used to turn his own church from a tiny, struggling inner-city congregation into a vital, thriving community of believers who pray with passion, focus, and faith.
Featuring teachings by Jim Cymbala and video interviews of ordinary people who have received extraordinary answers to their prayers, these six sessions will help you pray with new confidence.

We're using this study in our Sunday school class (I'm a pastor). The DVD is done very well - professional, great graphics, engaging, etc (not that this matters so much, but it's nice to see that there is excellence in the production). I don't see the DVD on sale here but the Zondervan site tells where you can buy it. We bought it from CBD. The content is Biblical and has been inspiring us and challenging us. The discussion questions and Bible exploration portions in the guide are very good. There's also a good section on prayer promises in the participant's guide.
Pastor Cymbala's heart for God through prayer is contagious. The testimonies from each person in each session is evidence of God's amazing grace and His power and sovereignty (DVD). The testimonies will bring tears, and open you up to a whole new attitude towards prayer. Hearing such powerful examples of answers to prayers and the privilege of prayer challenges us to rethink why we don't pray more. "...God is rich in mercy to all who call upon Him" (Ps. 86:5). The last session is also really great for learning how to begin a prayer ministry in your church.
It's definitely worth using the participant's guide with the DVD. There are 6 sessions but you could easily break them up to have the study last for 12 sessions. No church should be without this curriculum. If you want a teaching series that will spark prayer by God's grace, this is it. I can't recommend both the DVD and the guide enough.
Today's church buildings are filled when there are cookouts, fun activities, and festive occasions, but rather empty when there are calls to prayer. Until our leaders realize that it's not their job to make the Christian experience simpler or more user-friendly, the situation will continue to degenerate into more and more worldliness and prayerlessness.
I praise pastor Cymbala for trying, but our generation just needs to wake up!
