Are you ready to see God move in big ways in your husband's life, your life, and your marriage?

With warmth and wit, Kathi Lipp shows you not only what a blessing it is to pray boldly for your husband but also the amazing differences you'll see--in him and in yourself--as you pray in full confidence of seeing God-sized results. Kathi directs you to Scripture, showing you how to pray God's Word in every part of your husband's life, including his

Kathi Lipp tackles this vital issue with practical tips and encouragement, as well as some easy-to-follow prayers, so that every wife can be a praying wife."--Pam Farrel, author of the bestselling Men Are Like Waffles, Women Are Like Spaghetti and 52 Ways to Wow Your Husband

    Brilliant

    I love this book. I only had to read a few pages to realize this will never be in one of my give-away packages because I need this for my own husband. The prayers are powerful, because they are grounded in Scripture. This is one book I will keep on my nightstand, and it will travel around the house with me whenever I need to search for a quiet spot to pray.

    There is more power in the prayers in this book than in all the pep talks I've given my husband in the last several months--because there is more power in God's Word than in my words. I do believe it's important to encourage our husbands with our own words, and I'm not going to stop doing that. But sometimes it sounds like I'm trying to convince him of something, when that convincing is really the work of the Holy Spirit. I should be doing more praying than persuading. Thanks to this book, I can--and you can too.

    Many wives, me included, tend to pray for their husband with a q

    Many wives, me included, tend to pray for their husband with a quickie checklist, marking that job off the list for the day. Kathi has written her book, Praying God’s Word for Your Husband, to help us out dig out of that rut and dig deeper into God’s Word and pray the Word over our husband. She’s practical in directing us to pick a regular spot and time, focusing our mind, preparing our heart, and, yes, even praying with a prayer partner or group of women–which makes us more accountable!

    Kathi’s personal stories from her own life and the lives of other women encourage wives to pray more specifically and boldly. Taking the Scriptures and putting your husband’s name in the verses personalizes them, and helps you see the differences God is making in his life, yours, and your marriage and family! What can be more accurate than praying God’s word?

    Kathi’s plan is an eye-opener for me, showing me how to pray God’s word over my husband in so many more areas of his life. It has definitely broadened my horizon of his prayer needs.

    Some of the areas of prayer include:

    ‘ Career and finances
    ‘ Parenting
    ‘ Relationships with God and others
    ‘ Emotional health
    ‘ Safety
    ‘ Future

    So if you find yourself in a rut, checking off the same list over and over, pick up Kathi’s book to broaden your prayer life for your husband. And surprise, I found it’s not limited to just our husband! Many of the prayers relate to family and friends as well.

    Kathi’s book is just a starter for searching out Scripture to pray, but one to keep on hand, too! Dig into the Word and find the verses you need specifically. My favorite places to find prayers are Psalm 119, Ephesians and Philippians. Be creative–God is limitless in His answers!

    This book was provided free by Donna Hausler, Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was exchanged.

    The best gift you can give... Prayer

    I can not think of a better Father's Day gift to give my husband than to be committed to Praying God's Word for him! Nothing is eternal like prayer. Kathi Lipp directs the reader to use scripture in praying for their husband and how to pray boldly for him. She shows us concerns such as:

    · parenting

    · career and finances

    · relationship with God and others

    · emotional health

    · future

    · and teaches us how to approach those concerns through prayer.

    Whether you are a new believer or one of many years, this book will help guide you to a better, more direct prayer time for your husband. I admit I will throw up 'popcorn prayers' for him throughout the day, but it wasn't very often I would set aside a quiet time daily to pray God's word over him. So my gift to my husband this father's day is to work through this great resource book and take the time to really pray.

    You can too!
