"The Power of a Praying Wife Devotional," is different than other devotionals that I use. It is set up in a way that allows us to focus on praying not only for our marriage, and husband, but also to to focus on praying for ourselves.I think often as wives,mothers and caretakers we often forget the importance of praying for ourselves, but Ms. Omartian gently reminds us that when we pray for ourselves it affects our spirit,soul and body as well as our marriage. The author actually devotes one third of the book to devotions and prayers for the husband, and one third of the book to us as wives and a third to our marriage. Instead of doing this by sections she alternates between the three. Their are one hundred devotions which cover many issues and struggles found in many marriages.
I usually never read a devotional from cover to cover, and its no different with this one, I instead use the table of contents to lead me to topics that are relevant to my marriage and have found the prayers and scriptures very useful.Each chapter is short but has plenty of substance, because of the insight provided by the author. They are each typically two and 1/2 pages and begins with a scripture, a devotional and then a prayer.I have never had the pleasure of reading anything else by this author, but this book makes me a fan and I will be looking up more of her work.
If your a married woman looking to strengthen your marriage then this book is a must have, but I think it would also make a great gift for someone about to be married as well. ( )

Do you aspire to be a wife with a powerful prayer life? The Power of a Praying Wife Devotional by Stormie Omartian teaches new ways to pray that contribute to a healthy and fulfilling marriage. The Power of a Praying Wife Devotional features 100 insightful devotions and related prayers that are easy-to-read and convenient for busy schedules. The devotions vary in topic, but one-third of them focus on praying for yourself, one-third focus on praying for your husband, and one-third focus on praying for your marriage relationship. The devotionals are not grouped by prayer focus and do not have to be read in a specific order.

In the interest of reviewing The Power of a Praying Wife Devotional by Stormie Omartian in a timely manner, I did not read the entire book prior to writing this review. However, I have been reading it for nearly three weeks and have finished a substantial portion of the book. Everything appears to be correctly aligned with Scripture and the pre-prayer devotionals are filled with wisdom.

I used this book to supplement my daily devotions and read between one to three of the devotions per day. I can see myself reusing this book over and over. I found that the prayers helped me to learn a new pattern of praying and provided ideas of ways to pray for my husband. I've even found myself praying for my husband more throughout the day. While I don't remember the exact words from the prayers at those times, I do remember the pattern I've learned.

I highly recommend this book to any woman who is a wife or soon-to-be wife.
