The Power of a Praying Wife Review

My personal book review of A Praying Wife

I loved the book immediately. I first sat down to read it while my little ones were napping. I ended up finding myself deeply engrossed in the book for the entire two hours.

The prayers in The Power of a Praying Wife were exactly what I needed. The prayers are very specific to the main problems in most marriages and the common conflicts that occur between husband and wife. The prayers don't just protect and preserve your marriage, they also focus on your husband and help his walk with God.

God intended man and woman to come together in marriage, forsaking all others to fulfill their duties as husbands and wives. God intended women to be the heart of the home while men are to be the head of the home. The prayers in this book help your husband to rise up and be the head of the household as a godly man, which will benefit you both and help your marriage to flourish.

      Well, I'm the husband, and I would love my wife to pray like this. I got through only of few of the list of prayers before I had to *blink-blink* a few times in order to keep reading. This sounds like a great book. Maybe my wife and I will exchange the Praying Wife and Praying Husband books for Christmas! Sound like an excellent journey to me! Liking, Favoriting and Lensrolling!
