"Let's put aside any false humility or pride," author John Snyder says, "and come before God with boldness, asking for the moon." He reminds us that the Bible says we are to ask and then ask again. Over and over. Day in. Day out.
When the need is so great, so seemingly impossible that only God's direct intervention will ever bring it about, it takes a different kind of prayer. Your 100 Day Prayer is designed to take you straight to the heart and will of God by seeking him for a specific need. This book includes:
- A dedicated page to express your need before God on the day you start your 100 day of prayer,
- 100 entries to help you focus your prayer through the truth of God's Word and character,
- Leading prayers to give you a jump start,
- Writing space to capture your conversations with the Father and the spiritual transformation you experience day by day, and
- A concluding page to memorialize how God answered your prayer and transformed you through the process.
A powerful witness to the place of prayer in the Christian life with a user friendly daily discipline to introduce you to it. Highly recommended.

The concept of Your 100 Days of Prayer is inspired, and can only accomplish great things for our nation and the Kingdom of God if we'll all cooperate and implement it. The Lord is waiting to see if we have the courage and the desire. He is able.

Conversing with our Father in prayer is critical to spiritual growth. In Your 100 Day Prayer, John Snyder provides very practical and diverse meditations that will most certainly enhance the readerÆs prayer life and set the tone for daily living that is focused on God.
ùRick Dempsey, Sr. Vice President, The Walt Disney Studios
In today's Internet age of instant gratification, it's all too easy for Christians to "want it now" and expect the Lord to instantly honor Matthew 7:7: "Ask and it will be given to you . . ." John Snyder's excellent book provides a beautiful pathway to journal our 100 days of focused prayer as we are transformed in the process.
ùDavid Pack, Saddleback Church/ Orange County, Calif. Grammy winning Recording Artist & Music ProducerIn this 100 day pilgrimage, Dr. Snyder has woven four great Christian traditions togetherùdaily scripture reading, devotional insight, prayer, and journaling. You cannot practice these disciplines faithfully and emerge unchanged. I think that you will find when the journey has ended, that God has been your guide and your destination.ö
ùDr. Ed Ewart, MOO Church, Mission Viejo, CA
If you already enjoy a daily, satisfying prayer life, don't read this book. But if you're looking for something to stimulate you to become more faithful and systematic, John Snyder's Your 100 Day Prayer offers you an opportunity to focus on talking to God daily and making it an ongoing habit.

Archie IsibPhAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5grab thisDecember 21, 2012Archie IsibPhAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Your 100 Day Prayer" is more than just a book filled with scriptural truths, it is a study of God's Promises that will help you to "actively wait on God." Each devotional is followed by a short prayer that compounds on the message of the devotional. I also made as my journal... The daily devotionals are short and easy to fit into the day. The prayers are meaningful and concise. And the space to journal is a great idea. I think it is well crafted and may be a very useful tool for many Christians who want to focus their prayer life, 100 Day Prayer offers even more with the ability to discover daily that God does listen and does respond is the catalyst to continue forth on your transforming journey. I am looking forward to continuing the journey of self discovery and watching God works is ways I have never seen before.
junnelaranasAge: 18-24Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5I love this piece!May 21, 2012junnelaranasAge: 18-24Gender: maleValue: 5Meets Expectations: 4I found this book to be simultaneously very easy to read, and very hard to read. It was inspiring, but at times discouraging. It was easy to read because the writer writes heart-to-heart, in plain terms. It was hard because it's so darn challenging.
Sun Stand Still is an important and powerful call to trust God to do things completely beyond our own ability, while also giving it absolutely all we've got. If you've got a dream but are lacking the faith to see it come to pass, or if you just find yourself too stuck in comfort and safe prayers, this is definitely a book worth checking out.
If your use of time and money has become a problem or you struggle in your relationships or with sexual sin, this book may be a good place for you to start. This book is to convince you that by surrendering yourself totally to God's purposes, He will bring you the most pleasure in this life and the next.As I see it, a lukewarm Christian is an oxymoron; there is no such thing. To put it plainly, church goers who are "lukewarm" are not christians. We will not see them in Heaven.
gadfly1974Rochester, NYAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Valuable tool for learning about prayerJanuary 3, 2012gadfly1974Rochester, NYAge: 35-44Gender: maleSometimes a book speaks universally, to all people in all situations.
This book is different.
It gives you the opportunity to take a 3-month journey in prayer, focused on a single point of interest.
There is great wisdom in praying about the same issue repeatedly, and Mr. Snyder makes a compelling case to support this perspective.
When Jesus tells the story of a desperate but persistent widow who keeps asking the same judge for help, he is teaching us to bring our prayers to God repeatedly, like a child who asks for the same thing over and over again.
This isn't to teach us to be whiny, but to develop a healthy spiritual dependence upon God. If you don't share a belief in the God described in the Bible, then this book will just exasperate you.
One area in which I did not find the author's perspective compelling was when he wrote, "We can ask for health, healing, rescue, a mate, a career, or even a new Lamborghini! The worst that can happen is God can say no."
In a strictly logical sense, I agree.
If a person follows the 100-day plan outlined in this book, it will become clear while going through the daily reflections that asking for a sports car is a selfish and lame request, kind of like asking for your favorite team to win a playoff game.
But the value of learning persistence in prayer, focused on a single point of significant interest, allows me to forgive Mr. Snyder's command that we give up our "false humility" and just ask God for whatever we really want.
I suggest that you purchase this book in hard copy if you're interested. In addition to a daily scripture reading, devotional, and brief guided prayer, there's space each day for recording "Today's Progress," but this feature is not accessible in eBook format.

MelodyAge: Under 18Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Your 100 Day PrayerDecember 1, 2011MelodyAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2I'm suppose to review this book I requested from BookSneeze.
This book is called Your 100 Day Prayer and it's by John I. Snyder. I'm going to be honest and say that after about three days, I haven't used this book. I honestly don't know why. It does give you a chance to write what you're going to pray about after reading a little passage, following by a lesson learn from that passage. I couldn't really connect to it. The only part I really liked is having the chance to write your topic of prayer down. Other than that, I wouldn't really recommend this book.
CMorrisonSan Diego, CAAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great Prayer DevotioalNovember 10, 2011CMorrisonSan Diego, CAAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Your 100 Day Prayer is a guide for your own one hundred days. Each entry begins with a passage of Scripture and ends with preparation for prayer for that day. After your prayer, you can enter your thoughts and any notes you may have.The book is organized like a Bible study or devotional and requires the reader to put in a good amount of effort to get the most out of the process. So long as the reader has at least 10 minutes each day to do this, this is a tangible, meaningful way to develop your faith.The book contains four main chapters with each consisting of 25 days' worth of reading. The chapter titles are as follows:
1. Introduction - introduction to the book and thoughts on what it means to wait on the Lord.
2. The Power of Persistence - we must continue to seek, knock, and ask for God's guidance and wisdom in our journey of waiting.
3. The Silent Heaven - Don't just pray once about something, keep going to God about it and see what He says. Keep waiting even when He appears to be silent.
4. When God Says No - God only wants the best for us and sometimes that may mean He says no to our prayer request. Instead, He has something even better for us! We must trust Him by faith.
