Book Review - Your 100 Day Prayer: The Transforming Power of Actively Waiting on God

About the Book

Readers are guided through 100 days of intentional prayer and biblical truth that transform their spiritual lives and reveal God's provision for their needs.
Anything worth having in this life is worth waiting for and worth striving for. Unlike the world, though, Christians are called to a much different kind of pursuit when they survey their dreams, desires, and needs. Instead of an indulgent wish list, Christians are called to live a transformed life where they become more like Christ through the journey of striving after God’s will. In a time when both the world and even some Christians preach instant gratification, Your 100 Day Prayer offers another path—one of transformation while asking, seeking, and knocking for deep desires and desperate needs.
There is nothing guaranteed about 100 days, but as author John Synder 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.” Your 100 Day Prayer helps readers combine their need with God’s will in a measured, structured, and instructional experience that results in greater spiritual maturity, clarity about God's provision, and real answers to their very real needs. Because our “Father in heaven gives good gifts to those who ask him." (Matthew 7:11).

My Take on the Book
" Lord teach us to pray", Luke 11:1

When do we pray? Usually we pray to ask something for us. We may ask for help, protection, healing , or guidance. Other prayers may be for a job, a mate, a career, happiness, or peace. There are so many reasons we pray. We may offer thanksgiving or blessings to God also.

This book is a guide through 100 days of prayer. It can be used by an individual, group , or a family. It is a way of bringing before God our major issues , challenges, concerns, or transitions in our lives.

Each day of prayer using this book does not need more than 5-7 minutes. It is set up with a scripture reading, then text about the scripture. .There is a prayer and space for notes or reflections. Each day if a different topic.

Remember it comes from Jesus that we are supposed to keep asking, seeking and "knocking" if we are to receive anything from our Father. "Ask and it will be given to you,seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. For anyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." ( Matthew 7:7-8)

Some of the entries for your prayers are: Don't worry, Finish the Race, Wait for the Lord, The Lord is my Shepherd, Wait in Hope,Rejoice!, Not Guilty , and more.

If you are searching for a new avenue of prayer in your life and a way your family can have discussion about everyday events and challenges, I think you will find this book a way to move you forward.
