Was going through a rough time in my 3months old marriage when a cousin recommended this book that i should read and pray with. The book actually helped shaped my thoughts about Marital issues that not every issues needs a reaction but a fervent praying wife to stand in the gap for the husband and the entire family ????

“My shipmate gave me this book so I could have something to read on my 15 hour flight back to the states for my grandma Ruby’s funeral. I read the entire book. Then I read it again to digest it more. This is an awesome book. It has changed the way I’ve dealt with certain situations in my life. My faith has been restored because of this book. Thank you very much Mrs. Omartian. Whenever I’m going through something I can pick up your book of prayers and there is a message just for what I’m going through.”

“I am so thankful for your book, it is teaching me so much and has opened my eyes.  From your book I have learned that I need change also…but that is not all I’ve learned.  I’m so touched by this book.”

12/21/14 Murry Soward

“I found the book The Power of a Praying Wife to be awesome. This lady is truly anointed by God. If, after reading this book, you don’t see the light, then there is no light at the end of the tunnel for you. Thank you Stormie Omartian for allowing me to acknowledge that there is someone out there who is on the same page as I am when it comes to God and marriage. May God continue to motivate you and bless you! For you are truly a blessing to others.”

“I have grown closer and more in love with my husband as a result of reading this book. You can’t help but love those for whom you pray. It also alerts me to areas in which I am falling short, which in turn helps me to give more grace to my husband.”

12/21/14 Tara

“I love this book along with the rest of the line!”

12/21/14 Arinzechi

“I love this book.”

“I think this is one of the best marriage books ever written.  I am a young Christian wife; I read your book and was greatly blessed.”

“I was lying in my hospital bed, just having had my 50th plus heart attack and fourth heart surgery, when my husband came into my room.  I was so happy to see him.  He sat on my bed, this man I married (you know…the man that stood before God, family and friends promising he will be here for better or worse, in sickness and in health, and never part until death), my friend, my lover, my brother in Christ, my everything, and he looked down at the floor and stated, ‘I cannot handle this anymore.  I am leaving you.’  You know, I don’t remember him hearing him vow to me ten years ago, ‘...only if you don’t get sick…providing we always have enough money to do what we want…go on a cruise…drive a Cadillac…live in a ten room house with a three car garage…’  Nope, I don’t remember those vows.  He left the room, and all I could do was yell out to God, ‘Lord, I need you.’  God told me, ‘I need you.  All of you.  I need you to be at the bottom of your life, so all you can do is look up to me. I have to be your everything.  No one man, only me.  God can be your everything.’

12/21/14 Ana

“I was traveling to Philadelphia when I bought the book. Then I was going through some very hard times in my marriage, and I can say it works. My husband has changed his mood a little and I know I still have more praying to do for him as well as myself, but it is a comfort to have in times of need.”

12/21/14 Von Rijn

“My wife and I don’t normally read books, but these books—The Power of a Praying Wife, The Power of a Praying Husband, and The Power of a Praying Parent—got us hooked on reading…It’s really a great blessing.”

“Stormie Omartian is a great woman that I admire so much. The book is inspiring and eye opening. It deals with everyday practical examples that help me to see myself as a true helpmate, a listener, a rock in my home that my husband can always come home to seek succor in. And me, finding succor in God.”

12/21/14 Stacy Morales

“The prayers are so rich and encompassing of what a husband needs that I cannot stop at one prayer.  I read at least four for my husband every night.  The prayers have helped me to see the areas in his life I have neglected, not just in prayer, but in the physical as well.  This is a wonderful book and thank you, Stormie, for opening my eyes with it and your prayers!”

12/21/14 Lindsay

“This book has been life–changing for myself and my husband of 8 months. The beginning of our first year of marriage has had its trials, as most do. I am a strong believer in the power of prayer and when I saw this book I knew I had to read it! Once I started I couldn’t put it down. I began praying the prayers every day and within 2 weeks I saw a drastic change not only in my husband but in myself as well! Our communication has never been stronger, and I feel as though I’m seeing a side of my husband I never knew existed! Praise God for the power of prayer and for His never–ending wonders!”

12/21/14 Tammy Raney

“This book has been like a window to my soul and my marriage.  It was recommended at a crucial time and the words transformed my thoughts and prayers.  I cannot begin to tell you how much the words that the Lord spoke through Stormie mean to me and my husband.  This book has brought a renewed spirit and outlook.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

12/21/14 Laurie

“This book has changed me and my husband in many ways. I have 23 of them because I prayed so much they would fall apart on me. I read it everyday, and it has blessed us.”

12/21/14 Linda

“This book has transformed my relationship with my husband. It made such an impact on my life and my husband’s life that I bought The Power of a Praying Husband and the study guide for my husband for Christmas. EVERYDAY he thanks me for purchasing these books! I have also read The Power of a Praying Woman. In the next couple of weeks I will be starting a ladies Bible study group using this book and study guide. I have also purchased and given away several of these books. EVERYONE I have given a book to has called and thanked me for the book! Thank you, Stormie!!!”

12/21/14 Pennie Kloos

“This book is wonderful! I love the Word filled prayers. I continue to pray them over my husband.”

12/21/14 Yolanda Dixon

“This book is wonderful. I could not put the book down. I learned and grew so much from each line that I read. I would recommend The Power of a Praying Wife to all the women in the world. I pray that God will continue to use Stormie to write books to the world that are uplifting to all men and women.”

12/21/14 Martha

“This is an insightful, informative book that teaches you how to pray specifically for your husband. It addresses detailed issues in most people’s lives that you can immediately apply to your prayer life.”

12/21/14 Zimkita

“To be read even by those who are thinking about getting married. I am engaged and it’s helpful.”

12/21/14 Dawn Waskey

“What an outstanding book! If I were to choose two books and get rid of everything else—this would be my accompaniment to the Holy Bible. I am a new wife of just over a year now, and I find tremendous encouragement and help for prayer requests to the Lord, my lifeline, easily in the pages of this invaluable book! Five Stars!”

12/21/14 Allie

The Power of a Praying Wife has been very helpful. Don’t wait until your marriage is in trouble, read it now!”

12/21/14 Eva

“This is an excellent book. Every time I buy one it never fails that I come in contact with another woman desperately needing guidance in praying for her marriage. I would give her the book and God always made a way for me to get another one. I have bought several over the years and continue to give them to women in need.”
