A Prayerful Wife

I am blessed with some amazingly Godly friends. We try to get together every 2 weeks or so to hang out, enjoy each other, eat, and talk about our love of Jesus and our love for our husbands.

We've been reading the book, The Power of a Praying Wife, by Stormie. It has been such a revelation to me (and to them) that we aren't the only ones!! It is a relief to know that my marriage isn't the only marriage, I'm not the first wife to feel a certain way, my husband isn't the only one. I know - I must have been living in a very sheltered world if I thought we were the only ones right?? What I mean by that is we aren't the first couple to disagree, he isn't the first husband not to understand, and I'm not the first wife to doubt or question. BUT the way we handle ours marriage is different.

Praying for my husband strengthens our bond and our love for one another. It helps me to think before I speak and to make sure that the way I feel is validated by God's word or of I'm being of the world. It is so easy to fall into the flesh when you live with someone 24/7.

God blessed is when He gave us marriage. And although it may not always be easy, it is one of the best things in my life. If you are married, ever want to get married/date, or want to be the best woman possible, I strongly urge you to read this book.

She provides anecdotal stories, relatable scripture, and valuable prayers. I believe it will stay on my nightstand for years to come.
