    Saved my marriage and me as a wife

    My marriage had fallen apart. This was my second marriage and I loved my husband too much to just give up. I felt like such a failure. I picked up this book and read through it and learned that in order to save my marriage and relationship with my spouse I had to place God first in my life and not so much my marriage, I needed to place my marriage in God's hands. I learned something very difficult and that was 'letting go' of trying to change my husband and asking God to change me so that the changes with my husband could take place according to his Will. So many changes have occurred in our lives now and even though we have alot of work ahead of us, all the changes have been through the Grace of God. We are both going to church together, something that was made very clear, would never occur. This is a powerful book for those seeking assistance in prayer for your marriage.

    CHANGED MY LIFE!!!!!!!!

    A few days after my husband and I filed for divorce, God put it on my heart to read this book. I read chapter one and we stopped the divorce. I finished the book and continue to pray the prayers in it daily. We are now happily married and more in love than when our love was brand new. Through this book God was able to completely change my life. I HIGHLY recommend it to every woman.

    AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can't tell you how incredible this book is. Every wife should definately own one. I have learned that praying, for my husband, about EVERYTHING, rather than getting down on him or arguing and even worrying about him, is so much more effective. God will take care of everything as long as you learn how to ask and are willing. This book teaches you all of that and more. It is a great book!!!

    FOR EVERY WIFE

    I have to say that this book has helped me a great deal in dealing with the everyday stresses of marriage. I've been married for almost 3 years and found that I used prayer as a last resort time after time. I've found that by praying first and always, I've become a better wife. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERY WIFE OUT THERE. I bought it only a few months after getting married and have found it to be absolutely wonderful.

    Not as described!

    Please be careful when you order this. It is not the book as described. It is actually a Leaders Guide to be used with a video curriculum.

    This is a blessing

    I read this book before my marriage I also got a copy of Power of a praying Husband. He loved the book we talk about the books and how it plays a part in or life. When I feel the enemy trying to break us apart we pray and look back on prayers in this book. I have told every couple about this book and what changes it has made for us.

    Recommended for all Married Couples

    I purchased this book and now I never leave home with out it. I brought the companion book, Power of a Praying Husband for my hubby and he is totally in love with it. We now recommend it to all married couples. This book allows you to look at your husband in a way you never have before. I definitely related to some of the instances in the book and it is a wonderful resource in my life. A lot of times we don't know what to pray for concerning out husbands but this book will put it all in prospective.

    great book

    since moving towards God my marriage grew stronger. reading this book has also made my marriage grow stronger. i do not think this book is pointing fingers or putting our husbands down. i think it is teaching us a bit about our husbands and things that are important to them that we as women may not have realized. then it teaches you how to pray so that you can strengthen them. it does tell you in the begining of the book that you are not trying to change them. it also has a prayer to help you as a wife and to except your husband, flaws and all. so it is a great book on helping you to learn and understand about your husband and how to pray to that God will bring you closer to each other and Him. i do agree with another review that you do need to pray for yourself as a women as well. and yes Stormie has blessed us with a book for that! God is Great!

    every person who is thinking of marriage must read this book.

    I read this book and now i have purchased it for so many others. I never read a book that was able to totaly give such plain instruction about marriage and having faith. I now know that God can change any thing if i pray and place what i want God to do in my life in my prayers and let dout die. Then i shall recieve it.

    Life Changing for us as a couple

    I was frustrated with how our marriage was going. I had prayed every day but this book gave me a new and more effective way to pray for my husband and myself. I learned so much and am thankful God inspired Stormie to write this book. Prayer works!!

    I could have written this book.

    I feel like I've lived her life in many ways. I used to complain to and about my husband. I never thought of praying for my husband and it has helped a great deal. Her three little words, 'Change Me, Lord', has changed my life.

    MADE ME A BELIEVER

    After nearly coming to a divorce, I picked up this book and read its entirety. I never knew how much praying can impact someone. My marriage was basically shattered, don't get me wrong, we have a lot of work to do, but this book has helped me with some issues and made sure I put God first and also making sure God is in my husband's life as well. This is an EXCELLENT BOOK!!!

    A praying wife

    This book has been an inspiration to me and to my life. I, like many people, thought everything in our marriage was his fault. This book allowed me to realize that before our marriage could change, I had to change. Also, I never realized how much praying for your husband could change our lives. I have recommended this book to many of my friends and my mother.

    A Very Good Book

    This was a very good book, and one that most woman would benefit from reading. I think that praying with your spouse is just as important as praying for him. It certainly helped to make a stronger marriage.

    Wonderful book to improve you and your marriage.

    I checked this book out from the library and have decided I definitely need a copy of my own. This book shows that a wife (I think it would be good for any woman) should lean on God and pray for her husband in different aspects of his life...from his work, his protection, his priorities and more. Instead of asking God to change our husband, we pray to God for our husbands. This is such an enlightening book. I have definitely noticed a change in me and my husband - and it has only been a week. He does not even know I have this book nor does know I have been praying for him every day since I had the book. Thank you Stormie! Truly, God has worked his wonders through her.

    This book is a must for a married women. If you want a better marriage you mite want to get this book. I've been married 12,yrs and needed to stop looking at my husband in the flesh, But learn to pray and watch the Lord Jesus change him. Sometime it's better to pray then speak what you see. God Bless you Stormie!
