Any woman who desires a closer relationship with her husband will enjoy receiving this refreshing look at the power of prayer in marriage.
The trials and pressures of modern life can make the prospect of a fulfilled, meaningful marriage seem impossible. In The Power of a Praying Wife, popular Christian author and speaker Stormie Omartian pinpoints common marital struggles and reveals the miraculous way that disciplined prayer can alleviate heartache and sustain unity. According to Omartian, a marriage's success depends upon "laying down all claim to power in and of yourself, and relying on God's power to transform you, your husband, your circumstances, and your marriage." Omartian attributes the success of her own 25-year marriage to dedicated prayer for every area--however specific--of her husband's life; from his finances and his work to his integrity and his temptations. Each chapter offers insight into areas that are especially important to men, followed by "power tools" (inspiring, topical Scripture) to guide one's prayer life and transform a woman's mind with regard to her husband. This practical read will encourage women to trust God to change their spouse, and undoubtedly refocus one's perspective on God's power rather than one's own personal predicament. --Jill Heatherly
Wisdom! The Power of a Praying Wife - Book of Prayers by Stormie Omartian is an excellent book for wives. I believe that when a woman prays for her husband, the marriage will be blessed and so shall the two of them.
If you find yourself praying redundant prayers and want to expand your prayers to be specific to your marriage, husband, and self...then this is a must have book for you.
The author stays consistent to the outline of her other books by including awesome prayers, scripture to support the prayers, and space for personal prayer notes. I like the design of the book. It is one that you will be able to use over again and also encourage others by being able to minister on temptations, health, fears, finances, priorities, jobs, forgiveness, and love language for spouses.
Anyone that has been married for a number of years and have experienced the highs and lows of married life will benefit from this book. I love the book and give it 5 stars. I highly recommend it. Who would not want to expand on God's wisdom and blessings in their marriage?

Another great book from Stormy Omartian This is a great book! It features several chapters with teaching on each facet of a husband's life and suggested prayers at the end of each chapter. It goes a long way to demystify a man's world for a wife and help her break out of interpreting his behavior in the light of her own context instead of his....more info
Awesome guide This is an awesome guide that can be and should be used frequently. I am so glad my cousin recommended it to me. This is definitely a "keep in your night stand" type of book. It is written in such a way that you can just reference a certain topic area, in no particular order (although I did read it straight through the first time). I suspect that I'll be giving this as gifts to other wives I know....more info
its a keeper this is a really good book, actually all her prayer books are good. Too me, the book really isnt a reading book, go to the chpts that interest you, scan it over, and really spend time reading the prayers. read thru, it when you get a chance, but I would first start with the prayers, you'll find that as you read them, they come from the heart, they are full of powerful scripture and WOW, they work, no, let me rephrase that, God works. I would recommend this book and if you have kids, the power of a praying parent is great too. I didnt like her autobio. though, it was too sad for me, but maybe good for others....more info
