The Power of a Praying Woman
I originally bought and read 'The Power of a Praying Woman', in June 2006 and was extremely pleased with the fact that I had gotten my money's worth. It felt like a spiritual retreat in the very comfort of my own apartment. Reading through the book, saying the prayers and reading the Bible verse confirmations attached to each chapter provided much food for thought and reflection over the 30-day period that I used it (there are 30 chapters).
This book, written by Stormy Omartian, enables women at every age, strata of society and stage of life to meaningfully reflect on and attract the positive energy needed in every area of their lives and to make any required changes. She is really down to earth and covers all of the areas, concerns, issues, and challenges faced by Christian women the world over. She also uses really pertinent examples, based on her very own life.
Some of the topics that are covered in the 'The Power of a Praying Woman' treat with resisting the temptation to sin, blessings for the work you do, practicing forgiveness, seeking divine protection, dealing with negative emotions, finding comfort in times of trouble, speaking life-giving words and more.
Then more than seven (7) years later, in October 2013, I picked up 'The Power of a Praying Woman' again, read it through and it was a new experience all over again. Why? Because in those 7 years between 2006 and 2013, I had grown older and wiser, moved to another country, changed jobs, met new people, made new friends and decisions, gained new insights etc. So reading the book once again with my added life experiences as background meant that I was again doing another 'spiritual retreat'. The same chapters I had read 7 years earlier had new meaning for me now.
In short, this is definitely a book to buy for keeps because you can use it over and over again when you need to get a new lease on life!
