Customer Reviews For "The Power of a Praying Wife"Write Your Own Review
If there is a book I'd give to newly marrieds, this would be one of them - to the wife I mean (!). Great insights, well presented, so down to earth and so very practical. Great to have relevant bible references in one place all fleshed out under particular topics. LOVE Stromie's prayers as well. Great to use as a launch pad for your own prayers as well. Once you get started praying, you won't be able to stop. Stormie is such a blessing!
This is a great book. I love the large variety of topics that Stormie covers. There is so much biblical material in here, and so many things I had never really thought to pray for. At the end of each chapter there is a prayer to pray on that topic, so after reading the book through a few times, I then simply would head to the end of each chapter to pray through the prayer. I'm not usually one who loves pre-written prayers, but I found these ones quite helpful. I recommend this to any wife who wants to cover her husband in prayer, in every area of his life.
A concise and well thought out book that sensitively explores the key areas a wife can cover her husband with through prayer. Personal anecdotes draw the reader in. Great suggestions to motivate and empower the would be praying wife - with each chapter ending in a suggested prayer that you can use as a template to begin praying for your husband. A work wrought through genuine experience that is palpable through the pages.
I love this book and use it almost everyday. Initially I read it all the way through, learning about how and why to pray for my husband, which was really helpful. What I find most helpful though is the topical prayers at the end of each chapter. I love praying for my husband each day but was in a rut of just praying for his job and pressures etc. Now I'm praying more fully for every part of his life as I am prompted by the prayers. Praying so positively has the bonus of making me love my husband more each day too. Each chapter also finishes with several bible verses to encourage and strengthen you.
I received this as a wedding gift and it is such a good resource for a new wife. each chapter containes an story form the author then a prayer on a particular matter or issue, the prayers cover many subjects that would impact on a young wife, particularly in relate to her husband and their future together.
