Men, This is a guide to help strengthen our wives and children. Prayer is the best way we can fix what is wrong in our relationships. As men we have a need to DO Something to fix thing. Give God a chance to make you a better man, father and husband.

I would absolutely recommend this book to every single man on the planet married or not. The selfless prayers that Stormie writes about are centered around your wife, she suggests praying together and I have applied this in my marriage and big changes are occuring. My wife hears my heart and I hers, intimacy like I've never known with my wife is happening. Outstanding book! Thank you Stormie!! Kelly Hewett Soldier, Police Officer, Citizen

I bought this book for my future husband. I read it just to make sure i agreed with what was being said before i passed it on to him...i have to say that Stormie covered all the areas of concern for me and she did an awesome job of breaking it down for men without sounded scholarly-which can sometimes turn people off from reading-after all we are looking for practicality rather than theory. I thought the section HE SAYS was excellent because real men who have been married for years gave their opinions, their struggles and triumph in specific areas of praying for their wives. I read this book and felt encouraged as a woman. It shows why it is so very important to be equally yoked. Even though this book will benefit Christians most, i still think it can positively influence any man, regardless of religion, to pray for his wife to see change rather than do what the world recommends as remedies for marital problems. This is the perfect wedding or anniversary gift to give to couples (must add the wife version to complete the set). Thanks Stormie, I will now read the wife version. Prayer does change it all!

I married my childhood sweetheart since 4th grade and am on my 25th year of marriage now. I bought this book wanting to take my marriage to a new level. I've been a Christian since the age of sixteen, but have never taken my marriage to this kind of spriritual level. Every Chapter in this book was just fantastic! I really like the prayers at the end of each chapter - WOW!!! I've now ordered the book for a co-worker, friend, my married son and my dating son!!! If each of these men and myself will just do 10-20% of what this book teaches, they will be successful husbands.

My wife of 22 years left in Dec., 2000 after 4 years of struggle in our marriage. I had almost given up hope until I read 'The Power of a Praying Husband'. While there has been no outward evidence of her wanting to return to our marriage, this book has made me aware of so many things that I can do even now to support her at this time. Praying for her has helped me in my attutude towards her and others around me. It has also enabled me to do a better job of turning this over to God instead of thinking I can 'fix' it myself. I still slip and have to regroup at times, but I'm getting better at it. Regardless of the final outcome, I already feel like both of us have been blessed by my prayers to God. I had to learn that you cannot pray and expect answers if you have misgivings against the one you pray for. I had to choose against holding on to hurt feelings and wanting to help the person I love most in this world. She's much more important than my pride. I wish every man, married, separated, divorced, or single would read this book. It gives so much insight into what that special woman in your life needs and how fulfilled you will be to be able to give unto her in a godly way.

This book opened my eyes and helped me to see the world from my wife's perspective. From time to time I would read a passage to my wife and ask her if she could relate to it or if she ever felt these things. For the most part the book was on target. Every woman is different, so your experiences may be different. All things considered, I strongly reccomend this book to any man that seeks to gain some insight into his wife's thoughts, fears, and needs.

This book was truly an answer to prayer in a low period of my married life. My wife was going through a period were there was an illness that no one could explain. Everyone we spoke to Doctors our Pastor they all believed it was a mental problem. My sister bought The Power of a Praying Husband for me and it has helped me to be more aware of the needs of my wife and stop thinking of my own needs letting God take control and to place my Wife in pray before him and to let HIM do the healing..

I thank god for giving Stormie the inspiration to write this book. Just a few weeks ago I was facing a divorce. You see, my wife was having a very hard time adjusting to married life. after beging a single parent for some 12 years, she was use to coming and going as she wanted, not having to let anyone know what she was doing, or where she was going, or when she would be back. I had this book the power of a praying husband, for about nine months and never so much as opened the book. but you see God has a way of getting our attention when we are at our lowest moments, So I began to read the book, and from the very begining I was thanking God for this book, belive me my brothers it's truly, truly inspired by God for us, and reading this book help save my marrige, and it tought me how to pray for my wife, it also has given me a much better understanding of what my wife, need and want from me as her husband........please, please read it, and let me know what you think. email me with your thoughts about the book.

The Power of a praying husband has improved my prayer skill overall, it has helped me to understand the needs, personality, and character, of my wife. The book and the prayer excercises has also helped me to accept my wife as she is, and encourage her to be all she wants to be. I can truly say that this book has helped me to find the missing link to my relationship. I also find very valuable, inspiring, and motivating, the advice from different husbands, I felt as if I had found 'wisdom in the multitude of councillors.' I have made this book a reading requirement for the men in my men's ministry at church. Overall, this book Tops all relationship book i've ever read. I would say Get it. (by the way, I have purchased and read alot of books from this website and this is my first review on anyone of them, that's how good this book is. When I realize all the blessings my wife was recieving through my new found praying power, I went and bought the companion book;THE POWER OF PRAYING WIFE so I could receive my share of the blessing.

I am a Christian man who is currently about seven weeks away from wedding. As one is such a position any material that will help to encourage and develop prayer between partners is certainly worth the time to digest. The book in question certainly can't be denied as to having such intentions, it is not this area of criticism that has brought criticism to surface, but instead the book's blatant communication of an unacceptable amount of overly stereotypical, culture friendly and simplistic assumptions. The paradigmatic husband that the text assumes as audience is immediately addressed as being either entirely self-consumed, a mindless statistic regurgitating sports fanatic, ignorant or completely outside any spiritual gifting promised by the Holy Spirit. The author finds it necessary to spend a significant amount of time congratulating the men to even think of beginning to pray for their wife, let alone finding the courage to fight against the genetic bondage of their maleness and attempt alas to read and comprehend. An example from the text follows as the author compassionately addresses men in her usual style of gross generality, 'Try to understand that as men you have simple, clearly defined needs... Your wife on the other hand, is a complex being.' It cannot be denied that contemporary pop culture has painted a portrait of the father and husband as emotionally dead, socially helpless and without any hope of discernment or logic in their ability to make decisions. Between 'Everybody Loves Raymond' and 'Tool Time', the husband becomes the essence of a shamefully idiotic entity, whose witty and lovingly sarcastic wife does all she can to brighten his eyes to the light of social reality. The text itself is laden with a number of scriptural references with fall far outside contextual or historic consideration. The biblical view of a Christ fearing man's natural strengths, roles and weaknesses are abandoned to the serpentine glance of pop culture and comedy routines. In essence, a man must take himself seriously before he can seriously value his relationship with Christ. A man who fails to seriously value his relationship with Christ will certainly fail to pull much from scripture or texts that attempt to apply commentary to it. The first step then to making prayer a pragmatic as well as aesthetic addition to a marriage relationship is for a man to learn to value himself as a potential picture of God's strength, love and glory. Embracing a book then, that holds to media's suggestion of contemporary maleness instead of the vision painted by the word of God is syllogistically counterproductive and logically unsound, leaving one feeling more impotent and incapable than empowered and willing.
