****The Power of a Praying Wife

by Stormie Omartian

Reviewed July 13, 2005.
Harvest House Publishers, Eugene, Oregon, 1997.  203 pages.
Sonderbooks Stand-out 2005 (#6, Christian Nonfiction)

I’ve tried to pray for my husband for as long as I’ve been married.  However, my prayers didn’t always get much farther than, “Lord, please bless my husband.”  This book is excellent if only to give you ideas as to areas for which you can pray for your husband.  Some examples include his health, his relationships, his fatherhood, his choices, and many other areas. 

She talks about the area and then gives a sample prayer in which you can insert your husband’s name, and she includes verses that are relevant to that topic.  There are 30 chapters, so you can pray one chapter for your husband each day, and start all over again the next month.

This book is especially good for wives who have a tendency to nag!  If it gets to the point where your husband can’t listen to you about a certain topic, then why not try praying about it?  If he doesn’t change, perhaps you’ll find peace about it.  Then both of you will be happier.

I liked this book so much, I ordered a copy of The Power of a Praying Parent.  I’d also like to revitalize my prayers for my kids.
