If you have spent any time with me personally, on my blog, on Instagram, etc. then you know I LOVE to read. I figure I’d share some of my favorites with you. First up, is one that I have had for years. The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartin. You can see one of her sister books The Power of a Praying Parent underneath.
As you can see, it is much loved. I try to go through this book at least once a year. Honestly, I can’t tell you if I have since we got the kids. BUT it was so comforting to bring it out and read its well-traced lines and speak its well-fought prayers again.
In a nutshell, Mrs. Omartin gives us 30 chapters of her life she has fought for in her life and the lives of others through stories that are laced with scripture and ends them very nicely with again, scripture filled prayer on that given topic. The topics include his work, affection, temptations, choices, etc. However, ladies be forewarned, she starts out the book with a convicting first chapter entitled His Wife. For many years I have covered my husband in these prayed and have learned to season my daily prayers with scripture and to actually take my concerns to God sooner than later.
If you are married, I encourage you to get this book. If your husband is a christain, if he isn’t, if he is struggling in any way, if he isn’t, your prayers can make a difference. Heck, I have prayed some of these prayers over myself. To me, this is not your average devotion or prayer book. Stormie’s book has much more meat to chew on than most.
