What "good" wife -- whether newly married or "veteran" of many years -- does not want her husband to be all that God intends for him to be and to enjoy all the blessings God has for him? And what a blessing it is to think that she can have a part in seeing those things happen. How does that work? How can a wife have that kind of impact on her husband's life?
One important answer to that question is this: PRAYER. Sharon Jaynes has laid out a very real, very practical way of leading wives through that all-important role in her new book Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe -- A Daily Guide to Scripture-Based Prayer.
After laying a groundwork for the power and purpose of prayer, Sharon maps out sixteen landmarks, using physical attributes of a husband to guide his wife to pray for every area of his life. She then gives specific examples of using those landmarks and scripture to guide you through 30 days of in-depth prayer for your husband.
This is a book that I do not expect to just read through once and then put it away on the shelf. I see it as a guide to return to time and time again as I continue to see God at work in both my husband's life and my own as I continue to follow the pattern Sharon has shared.
Thanks to Sharon Jaynes and Multnomah Books for providing me a copy of this book and allowing me to be a part of the book launch team.
