Today I have the privilege of telling you about a wonderful book I have been reading and then even better I get to give TWO of these awesome books away to YOU! That’s right. But first let’s talk about this book and how I am convinced it is changing my marriage…
In October I had the opportunity to go a Christian women’s blogging conference called Allume. I was able to hear several great authors and bloggers speak. One of those was Kathi Lipp who is the author of several books. At Allume she shared with us about her new book Praying God’s Word for Your Husband. I enjoyed hearing Kathi speak because one she was down to earth, two she spoke from her heart and three she was witty. I was pleased to find out that her book is written in the same manner.
This is a book you can read cover to cover or jump right in depending on the topic you want to focus on. Each chapter identifies a common feeling or situation a man commonly faces i.e. finances, worry, job, inadequacy, finances. I appreciate that the chapter starts with real insights from Kathi and other women experience different aspects of their husbands. It’s comforting to me to know that most husbands and wives are dealing with the same issues. Each chapter lists several verses that correlate with the topic with a short prayer following the verse. So right there you have a verse and a prayer to pray over your husband. It is that simple.
I pray for my husband but not how I want to. I’ll be honest sometimes my prayers are a little flat, a little stale. A lot left to be desired you could say. But then I started reading this book and I have learned what a crucial force my prayers can be in my husbands life. I have learned that it’s more than a blanket prayer in the morning and when I think of him throughout the day but it is specifically praying God’s Word over him and the details of his life. I have learned that when I don’t understand my husband and how he is feeling, prayer can go beyond that indifference. Lastly, I have learned the more I pray for my husband the closer I feel to him.
Seriously it comes down to this…
If you aren’t praying for your husband, then who is?
I know that God is using this book in our marriage. He is changing it for the better and in a sense changing our family.
