Anything worth having is worth waiting for.
“Your 100 Day Prayer” is a call to “waiting” on God in prayer. Note: Not waiting FOR God but waiting ON God. The book points out the big difference between the two.
Author John Snyder 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.” That’s what waiting ON God will do for you.
Isaiah 40:31 says, “…they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
Snyder combines the practices of Bible reading, prayer, devotions, and journaling into one book. It’s a wonderful tool to help the most experienced believer to “wait on the Lord.”
The format encourages the reader to focus on one issue. To pray for one issue and record insights thoughts and notes. Snyder invites the reader to choose a crisis or problem of greater than normal difficulty and then “ask God for the moon.” I took him at his word. I am using the “Today’s Progress” portion of the book to record my own journey in praying for people in our church who are facing cancer. I’m asking God for His mercy in healing them.
Snyder sets the bar of participation at a doable level. He suggests minutes of focused prayer. He offers one verse for each day and a few paragraphs of meditation. Was it a coincidence that the writings for most days were so helpful in the moment?
Great process for individuals…even better for a group to do together.
Rest in the truth: “God’s in charge…of everything, all the time and forever.”
I was given a complimentary copy of this book from Booksneeze.
