I adore this book. This is a powerfully helpful book. Your personal prayers for your husband, and Stormie's general (overall) prayer reminders of specific target points are great for your husband and your family. Don't ever feel like you're praying these things without your husband's consent. The word of God and the heart of a wife that's FILLED with love, respect, and humility towards her God and her husband is a heart that God looks upon with delight. He moves upon the prayers that come from that type of heart. Normally when I pray these prayers, I try to pray them all - straight through, and walk away in thankfulness - knowing that God will determine which ones He will manifest first. :)

Noteworthy Excerpts:
"... The power of a praying wife is not a means of gaining control over your husband... It's 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.... It's a gentle tool of restoration appropriate through the prayers of a wife who longs to do more than be right, and to give life more than to get even." (page 13)

"The most effective tool in transforming him may be your own transformation". (Page 27)

"Ask the Lord to show you how to make your home a safe haven that builds up your family - a place where creativity flows and communication is ongoing." (page 37

"Your prayers can shield him from anything that causes him to doubt and waver, and give him strength to do what's right - even when no one's looking". (page 118)

The only reason I have given this (five star book) 4 stars is because the only thing it is missing is your prayers.

This book is broken down in to small segments to coincide with specific areas to work on with prayer. While I enjoyed the simplicity of this concept, I found many things I didn't agree with. There are times when Stormie "preaches" something as factual that is nothing more than her specific view. All that said, this is agreat way to get your mind focused on praying intently, specifically,and ritually. Worth your time to read at least one of her titles.

This book really helped me look at my husband in a whole other way, really through the eyes of Jesus. Because before praying for him, I started praying for his wife....that's me! The Lord heard my prayers, and He changed me. In the time I spent reading this book, I have seen changes in my husband even if so subtley. I would reccomment this book to every wife, it is very encouraging and a very easy read.

I've learned a lot about prayer from Stormie Omartian. This book is very insightful with sections for different categories that are important for a man. She shows you how to pray using scripture. It can make a big difference in the way you currently pray for your husband. I highly recommend it!

After reading this book, I find myself praying more selflessly. I would recommend it to any wife wanting to improve her marriage. This book does not approach prayer as a weapon against our husbands but against the devil's ploys, starting with giving our husbands new wives (God making you a new creature).

This is an amazing book to jump start your prayer life for your husband! It will allow you a scope of prayers while helping develop your ability to flow freely in prayer. I highly recommend this as an awesome prayer tool! You will find yourself growing in prayer and having to stop while reading prayers and praying your own private prayers, then resuming readying and praying! Enjoy!

Excellent read. The book arranges prayers by topic, addressing the fears, concerns, and (yikes) sin of a wife. It is very encouraging to the faint hearted... you CAN make it through marriage even if it is a marriage between two sinners. ;)

This book could definitely be a life-changer, and marriage-saver! Even though I am reading it without being in hard times in my marriage, I'm still challenged and encouraged and convicted in the most wonderful ways, and have already seen good fruit from it! I see this book not as a "book of prayers" to read out loud and something magical happens, but as a guide to HOW we women can pray for our husbands and a starting point for even more prayer!
