Great Application Book for Sustained Prayer
YOUR 100 DAY PRAYER – The Transforming Power of Actively Waiting on God, by John Snyder
In this non-fiction, life application book John Snyder takes the reader through 100 days of consistently seeking God for an answer to a specific issue in your life. He begins with room to lay out a specific request to God, then introduces the process and leads the reader through 100 days of learning more about who God is and how He answers prayer. The reading for each day includes a bible verse, short meditation, a leading prayer and journal space to put down thoughts regarding the day’s progress in receiving an answer from God. The book ends by asking the reader to record how God answered his or her prayer.
I read this book at a time when I didn’t have a specific need for which I was seeking an answer from God. However, even without the specific need I found the meditations provided good thoughts my daily prayer time with the Lord. I was reminded of insights that I had known but forgotten and was introduced to some concepts about approaching God that I had not applied before.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has been struggling with a need for which it seems God doesn’t hear, or is not answering. The book helps to focus, not only on the need, but on how God meets needs in ways we may not realize or allow ourselves to see. I think the book is especially appropriate for those new in their walk with the Lord, or just beginning on the road to seeking God in prayer. John’s writing style is very personable and not preachy. He gives insight as a person who has walked the walk and now is assisting others to walk ours.I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program.
