Here are a couple of suggestions and they are available to order:

My Heart's Cry  Author: Anne Graham Lotz

The Journey : Living by Faith in an Uncertain World  Author: Billy Graham

I Believe, Now What?  Author: Michael L. Simpson

The Power of a Praying® Woman (Power of a Praying)  Author: Stormie Omartian

What God Does When Women Pray  Author: Evelyn Christenson

The Threshing Floor: How to Know Without a Doubt that God Hears Your Every Prayer
Author: Juanita Bynum

Becoming A Woman Of Prayer (Becoming a Woman) :: Cynthia Heald

 

Cynthia Heald has several different books out that would probably be helpful.  Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Kay Arthur are very good authors and would have something that you would like.

Just noticed another author's name:  Elizabeth George

I've never read her but she is very good from what I have heard.

Joyce Meyer... she has quite a few different books which relate to specific struggles Christians face & how to understand & apply what you learn to get through them.
