Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe

Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe by Sharon Jaynes turned out to be the type of book that I was hoping it would be. From her definition of helpmeet (not what most feminists rail against, but rather a "role of great honor; a portrait of great strength") to what praying for our husbands does ("not of getting our husbands to do what we want when we want it but rather to love him and pray for him. As we pray, God aligns our desires with His desires, our thinking with His thinking, and our heart with His heart").

Basically, this will change us to help us to learn to pray for our husband's best interests. This is a 30-day prayer guide, each day focuses on several aspects which he may encounter throughout his day.

I'll admit, the first few days I had a hard time working through the chapters. I didn't feel as though the prayers were fitting or corresponding to our life. I'm now about 1/4 through the prayer guide and finding myself dwelling on some of the prayers.

In a time when we are so busy raising children, running a household, and dealing with everyday issues I think it is important to take this time out each day to pray for our husbands, who have their own struggles each day. This would be an excellent book for any married woman!
