Amazon Review

The trials and pressures of modern life can make the prospects 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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book gives an invaluable insight into the way your husbands mind works! The author takes an honest approach to married life and in 30 short sections guides you on how to pray practically for your man! I found this book amazing and noticed a change in both me & my husband. Stormie helps to put married life in a different perspective allowing us to pray instead of worry. Goodness knows marriage can be hard enough, this is a must for wives who want God to enrich their marriages, not just the ones that need some help. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every wife or wife-to-be 29 July 1999
By A Customer
Stormie Omartian has covered, in my opinion, virtually every area that needs to be prayed for in the life of your husband. This is really a must for every married woman and every wife-to-be. It's really shown me that there is nothing you can't put to God in prayer especially when you are stand on the Word. The book is full of scriptures that are just adequate for the situations and it covers topics that one doesn't necessarily think about. When you feel you have prayed and you don't know what else to pray about, open this book!!!
It was a revelation to me and it took my prayer life to a different dimension. I found out that as I pray for my husband-to-be, I also know what to pray for myself.

A Kid's Review
Enlightening. Inspirational. Powerful. Spoken in truth and sincerity and deals with the core of what responibility taking is about. Absolutely refreshing to my mind, spirit, soul and heart. I have blamed my husband for so many things, and not affirmed him then use wisdom to speak to him. Applying the prayers and principles in this book WORKS!!!

My husband has noticed the difference and acknowledged the difference in my speech. My view of him has truly been transformed. I thank God for your life Stormie and Michael Omartian.

5.0 out of 5 stars Storming read! 1 May 2009
Stormie Omartian's 'Power of a Praying Parent/Husband' titles are both superb reads and this is too. Without ever being patronising, Stormie shares her life experiences with candour and warmth, and sets out an accessible framework for making praying for one's husband an integral part of everyday life. Highly recommended for all Christian wives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I'd read it years ago 17 Mar 2009
I bought this book 4 days ago. I have found it so helpful. The book suggests reading through and praying through one of the areas each day, but I have found a strong desire just to keep reading and praying. I've read half the book, but have re-read and re-prayed through some particularly relevant pieces. Interestingly, my sister bought the book on the same day and has found the same. Without going into personal stuff, I believe that the insights and prayer coming from the book are transforming my marriage. My prayer is being answered - not because my husband is changing, but because I am being challenged to change and this enables him to change. God is at work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 1 July 2008
I am yet to finish this book, but whilst reading it as a wife to be it made me realise that yes the man is the HEAD, but WE are the neck. We are the ones to support him, and instead of trying to get him to change we ought to PRAY and support him, just as the neck supports the head, that is what I learnt one of my roles as a wife and a woman is to support the man.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for every Christian wife 26 Oct 1999
By A Customer
I picked this book up a couple of hours ago and I cannot put it down. There is nothing 'new' in this book, but it does bring together, in one very readable format, many profound truths that would really turn a marriage around. I have been married 15 years and I know that the truths laid out here really work; and a lot of it is hard work! I came on line because I borrowed this copy and now I want my own!

I would prefer more actual prayers than All the psoralen stuff -43 pages at the start before any prayer began.
