Marriage Monday - Power of a Praying Wife

Did you catch our post yesterday?  Join us as we talk about serving God and others in 2013!  Click here.

I am so very excited to begin our new marriage series here at Woman to Woman.  I had no plans of doing another series once the Love Dare was over.  However, beginning back in October God begin to lay on my heart so strongly about praying for our husbands.  You see, my husband was deeply hurt by a man who was a father figure to him.  My husband did not grow up knowing a father until we married and he had my daddy.  This other man was a great role model, friend and accountability partner to Jeremy the past six or so years.  Then suddenly this man turned on my husband and it hurt him.  I began to pray daily, several times a day, for Jeremy.  That God would heal his heart and bring him peace.  After a couple of weeks of praying for my husband, God laid on my heart to reread the book by Stormie Omartian, Power of a Praying Wife.  God also showed me that there are other women out there that are struggling with knowing how to pray for their husbands.  As wives, we hold so much power when we pray for our husbands.  I firmly believe in the power of a praying mom.  As moms we bring our children to throne room of Heaven and God hears us. Even with our adult children.  But a wife knows how to pray for her husband in a way a mom cannot.  We can pray for our husband in intimate ways.  We understand our husbands in ways their mothers do not.

A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
Proverbs 31:10-12

So after much prayer, we have decided to do a series on this.  As with the Love Dare, each Marriage Monday I will bring you one chapter of Stormie's book.  I will have some of her insights (in italics), things God has shown me personally and her prayers.

Our series will begin next Monday, January 14th and run for 30 weeks to coincide with the 30 chapters.

  1. I am a huge fan of the book, "Power of a Praying Wife" and it did so much for my life and marriage, I have given out probably at least 100 copies over the past years and keep 2 or 3 in my bookshelf at all times. I gave this to both my daughter and daughter-in-love years ago and from there, every single time I have visited with someone having marriage troubles, the first question I ask is, "Do you want things to change?" Of course they shake their heads yes and then my second question is, "Are you willing to read this book and trust God things can change?" It is amazing to hear the testimonies of how God transformed their marriages. I would love to participate in this study with you because this is one book I can read, re-read and read again... and God always shows me something new. :)

    I am excited to be a part and look forward to seeing the blessings from this one.
