Book Review: Your 100 Day Prayer by John I. Snyder

Your 100 Day Prayer, John I. Snyder, John Snyder, book review, devotional for crisis, devotional for crises, devotionalThis book has been a great help for me. It is really speaking to the circumstances we are going through. The daily devotional and prayer has helped me keep my thoughts and emotions focused on what God is doing through everything that is going on in our life.

Your 100 Day Prayer is good for anyone who is going through a transition or a difficult time. It will help you to know how to pray and grow in faith and trust in God as you are journeying through tough life realities.

The book focuses on growing closer to God through difficulties instead of just getting through them. Seeing your current situation through eyes of faith instead of feeling abandoned. Knowing that God is in control of everything and has a purpose for what you are going through. Thriving spiritually in tough times instead of sinking into despair.

I’ve been reading it daily and keeping a prayer journal based on the prayer for each day, and I’ve really been gaining encouragement from it. The doctrine is solid and agrees with Scripture. It is well-written, and I would highly recommend it – and even go so far as to say that it is a must for people who are going through rough waters. I would put this in the same category as Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. It really turns your thinking around and can be highly influential on your spiritual life if you let it sink in to your heart. Great book!

Thank you Thomas Nelson for sending me this ebook for review.

Book Review: Jesus Calling by Sarah Young

Jesus Calling by Sarah Young, Sarah Young, devotional, book review

I’ve been reading this daily devotional now for about six months. It is written as if Jesus were speaking directly to the reader. The whole book really feels inspired by the Holy Spirit. You can just feel it.

The readings have really helped give my heart some peace and calm. The book helps you to focus on what matters and fixing your eyes on Jesus. I read it every day after I read the Bible and journal my thoughts. God has really used this book to speak to my heart and remind me to listen to Him and just be in His presence everyday.

Some friends of ours love the book so much that they buy them by the case to give away to all of their friends. They are the ones who gave us our copy of the book, and I’m so grateful for their generous spirit. It has really made a difference.
