Consider Your 100 Day Prayer
Author John Snyder’s book is designed to help the Christian reader commit to a structured journey of prayer. The season is to last 100 days and the goal is to move beyond self-reliance and into a deeper, trusting relationship with God. Day by day, page by page Dr Snyder provides a scripture based program that isn’t “… overly involved or impossible to sustain – only a few minutes of prayer every day. It’s striving more for consistency than length of time in prayer.” There is room for journaling.
“For everyone who asks; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be open” (Matt. 7:7-8). Apparently, 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.” The theme of the book is to show the Christian how to make prayer a daily part of life, how to regularly share thoughts and desires, yet always ending with “Your will be done.”
