Your 100 Day Prayer. The Transforming Power Of Actively Waiting On God. John I. Snyder. 2011. Thomas Nelson, Inc., 223 pages.
I can not recommend this book as the prayer guidebook it was intended to be. The author doesn’t offer much Biblical insight into prayer anywhere in the book. In the “How to Use This Book” chapter, the Lord’s Prayer is mentioned in a quick, how- to style prayer lesson that is void of any real instruction or inspiration.
The book’s purpose, identified in the introduction, is as a guide during 100 days of praying for something specific. While the number of days is irrelevant, the emphases is that prayer be consistent. The author bases the application of persistent prayer on one verse, Matthew 7:7-8. The book has a good intent but it is not much more than 100 typical short devotions. Some were good and some were not so good. Each day also has a scripture passage, short prayer prompt, and a space for writing your progress. For many of the days, the prayer suggestions didn’t work for me. My suggestion for daily, intimate time with God would be a Bible, a calendar, and a journal if you like to write. Put a check mark on your calendar as reference or reminder of your time spent with God in prayer.
