From the Back Cover

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

Many wives approach prayer as a checklist, something that has to be done in order to carry the "Good Girl Christian" card. But with this accessible guide, prayer can feel about as natural as breathing. The reason: the Word of God itself becomes your prayer.

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

career and finances
relationships with God and others
emotional health

She shows you how to establish a routine, pick a special spot for prayer, focus your mind, prepare your heart, and even partner with other women in prayer. With Kathi's biblical direction, engaging personal stories, and encouragement, you can start making a difference in your husband's life today.

My take on this book:
"Praying God's Word for Your Husband" by Kathi Lipp is a motivational, inspirational, encouraging book that makes perfect sense. Praying for your husband is the perfect way to show him how much you love him, value him,and most importantly pour God's blessings down on him,it's the greatest gift that we can give him.
This  is a very user friendly book, filled not only with the author's own personal stories, but we get stories from other women as well. It is broken down into two parts the first part teaches us how to prepare for prayer, and the second section is prayers for your husband. For me I found the way this section to be written to be very useful. Each chapter focus's on a specific topic that your husband might be dealing with. I enjoyed the scripture verses and the sample prayers that are peppered through out the book. 
Overall a very well written book that I am certain that I will be turning to often. A great  gift for new wives, because knowing how to effectively pray for your husband is the perfect way to start out a new marriage. Recommended!

  1. It sounds like you found the book helpful. It can be really hard to trust in a higher power when we are struggling.

  2. Jill, I totally agree, and the one thing we often forget is that a simple prayer really can change things.
