I liked this guide, it was quite different from the usual “how to pray” type books. Your 100 Day Prayer: The Transforming Power of Actively Waiting on God is a combination of a devotional book and prayer journal whose purpose is to lead the believer into praying the way God wants. Waiting on God and being persistent in prayer—not the two easiest disciplines of the Christian walk. But, John I. Snyder addresses both in this book. Each day’s entry begins with a verse and thoughtful devotional and concludes with an opportunity to pray. The goal is to take a specific prayer request to God every day for 100 days.
Snyder’s book not only gives you verses and prayer prompts, but his daily devotionals are well-thought out and challenging. This is more than a fluffy feel-good devotional. Instead, it is an impassioned look at God’s character and what it means to pray with persistence. He deals with difficult topics, such as “When God Says No” and “The Silent Heaven,” with insight and wisdom.
The author himself says, “This sustained, stubborn, never-give-up spirit of prayer is not so much to persuade God to give us what we want, but rather to transform us in the process.” It certainly helps to bring a more focused daily prayer schedule into your life and encourages the family to have a communal prayer time. A very good resource for both beginners and seasoned prayer warriors with lots of scripture references. His book could help transform and enliven your prayer life, as well as spur you on to greater spiritual maturity as you engage in the daily disciplines of Bible reading and meditation, prayer and journaling.
