Publisher Comments:

You love your wife — and you want nothing more than to see her happy, flourishing, and growing together with you. And there's no better way to love her than to pray for her.

In The Power of a Praying Husband you'll find the excitement and hope that come from inviting the God who hears and answers prayer into your marriage. Even in situations full of hurt, He can do far beyond what you imagine — He can do the impossible!

In 20 short, easy-to-read chapters, Stormie Omartian shares how you can intercede for your wife in areas where she longs for your prayers —

  • her emotions and moods
  • her spiritual walk
  • her motherhood
  • her priorities
  • her sexuality

Advice and personal stories from well-known Christian men, prayer ideas, and words from Scripture will also help you shape your requests to God. And as you depend on Him in prayer, He will lead you and your wife into new fruitfulness, fulfillment, and everyday happiness!

Review:

"Omartian, who has dominated Christian bestseller lists with The Power of a Praying Wife, is back with a companion volume for hubbies....Omartian offers insights about prayer that even non-husbands will benefit from — when we pray with bitterness or hardness of heart, for example, those prayers will not be answered. For those lacking in creativity, Omartian provides, at the end of each chapter, actual prayers for husbands to say. And for those worried about taking husbandly advice from a woman, Omartian has sprinkled the book with the occasional paragraph by her husband, Michael Omartian, and a few other husbands. The book is not flawless; many of the chapters open with an analogy, and some of those analogies are obvious, stereotypically masculine and a tad degrading: your marriage is like a football game, your wife is like a car. This book accepts as a given certain notions about marriage and women's roles that may alienate feminist husbands and wives — men should pray for their wives' submission and obedience; working mothers need a set of prayers specially tailored to the guilt they're bound to feel. But for Christians of the Promise Keepers stripe, Omartian has provided an accessible, direct book on prayer." Publishers Weekly

Review:
