Your 100 Day Prayer by John I. Snyder
I loved the premise of this book—that if you will be persistent in your prayer request to God (for 100 days), you will see an answer. To be fair, right from the start, the author allows that God’s answer may be “no”. I did not get the impression that he was teaching us to manipulate God at all.
I loved the subtitle of this book as well—The Transforming Power of Actively Waiting on God. I did not, however, believe this book revealed this truth. To me, waiting on God is not simply waiting for Him to answer a prayer. It is more connected with listening to God. Any book that goes into how to really listen to God, would have more accurately revealed the truth of the transforming power of waiting on God.
This book is set up as a 100 day devotional. Each devotional is based on a scripture verse and is Biblically based. Quite a few were on the topic of prayer, which I thought was very appropriate. The part I liked best was each day’s suggested prayer based on the devotional. I found most of them to be extremely fresh and different.
The best thing about this book is that it is set up to help you to be persistent in your prayers to God. Don’t most of us have a tendency to give up when praying to God? For that reason, I believe this book has high value. If you read it as intended, for 100 days straight, and pray the same consistent prayer, you will benefit from learning the discipline of persistence. Even if, through reading the devotionals and by the influence of the Holy Spirit you tweak your prayer along the way, you will learn this discipline and benefit from it.
