International pastor and speaker John I. Snyder, author of Your 100 Day Prayer: The Transforming Power of Actively Waiting on God from Thomas Nelson, shared his story with Focus on the Family in today’s National Day of Prayer broadcast, The Power of Persistent Prayer. The interview with Focus President Jim Daly and Vice President John Fuller can been heard on Focus on the Family Radio and online at focusonthefamily.com/radio.
The book came as a result of a personal prayer journey that Snyder and his family began with many close friends. “There were many issues we were all facing, and we decided to pray together over 100 days for God’s resolution to the matters that were weighing most heavily on our hearts. I did a prayer post every day on my blog that we’d all read together, in different parts of the world, and after the 100 days were over, we all received the most incredible answers to prayer. We were inspired to share our journeys.”
The blog posts Snyder wrote were put together into a manuscript, which was quickly picked up by Thomas Nelson. The book has gone on to transform the lives of many readers all over the world, taking them on an intentional 100-day journey in prayer over a specific issue or circumstance in their lives.
Your 100 Day Prayer has been endorsed by Thomas W. Gillespie, President Emeritus of Princeton Theological Seminary; Rick Dempsey, Sr. Vice President of Walt Disney Studios; singer and motivational speaker Pat Boone; and many others, including hundreds of readers who have embarked on this life-changing prayer journey.
John received his Master of Theology and Master of Divinity degrees from Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey, and he received his Doctor of Theology degree magna cum laude in New Testament Studies from the University of Basel, Switzerland. He has planted churches in North America and Europe, and continues his ministry in both continents.
