A Journey through “The Power of a Praying Wife”

Unlocking Marital Bliss

At the beginning of this year I challenged myself to read at least four books that would help me to grow personally, as a wife, and in my walk with Christ. One of the books I had the pleasure of reading was “The Power of a Praying Wife” by Stormie Omartian. As a pastor’s wife, I’ve walked this path of marriage for 8 wonderful years and have been blessed with two amazing children. Over the years I have certainly come to appreciate the practice of prayer and its ability to take my life to new levels. This book is a treasure trove for any wife yearning to elevate her marriage through the power of prayer.

As I delved into the pages, I found myself nodding in agreement and grinning from ear to ear, feeling like Stormie was speaking directly to my heart. In this post, I’m thrilled to share my takeaways from this gem and shed light on five remarkable benefits that can result from a wife’s heartfelt prayers for her husband.

Practical Facets of Wisdom

The book is organized into 30 chapters, each honing in on a different facet of our husband’s life that’s worthy of our prayers. From his work and fears to his choices and future, it focuses on the areas we can lovingly cover with our petitions. I love this format because it makes it easy to read a chapter a day and complete the book in a month. Oh, and did I mention that each chapter comes with a beautifully crafted prayer that you can hold dear during your prayer time?

What struck me most about this book is its practicality. Stormie’s words aren’t overly ornate or overly spiritual – they’re like an honest chat between friends. Her writing style is super relatable and the prayers are like whispers from a sister’s heart. And that’s not all – Stormie’s woven her own personal stories into this tapestry, adding a layer of authenticity that feels like a comforting embrace.

Benefits of Becoming a Powerful Praying Wife

So, why am I waving the “read this book” flag? Because I believe in its transformative power that can ignite your relationship with your husband and with God. Now, let’s dive into the marvels of this book. Here is my list of 5 Benefits of Praying for Your Husband that I gathered from reading “The Power of a Praying Wife.”

    Praying for him opens your heart to his struggles. Empathy flows in, making you a more understanding and compassionate partner. It’s a journey into his world, and it’s truly eye-opening.
