The Power of a Praying Wife

by Stormie Omartian

It has been a while since I read this book. As I flip through it, I come across many pages I marked, highlighted, and dog-eared. As our lives have changed, so have the comfort-zones of our marriage and the challenge areas. Perhaps this is one I will be picking back-up and rereading in the near future.

This book could be used as a personal read/study or as a group study. There are no questions in or after the chapters but lots of thought-provoking statements, evident by all my own marks. At the end of each chapter is a prayer and Power Tools, verses from scripture to reflect upon.

A taste of Stormie's book, taken from page 44:


Lord, Help me to be a good wife. I fully realize that I don't have what it takes to be one without Your help. Take my selfishness, impatience, and irritability and turn them into kindness, long-suffering, and the willingness to bear all things. Take my old emotional habits, mindsets, automatic reactions, rude assumptions, and self-protective stance, and make me patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled. Take the hardness of my heart and break down the walls with Your battering ram of revelation. Give me a new heart and work in me Your love, peace, and joy (Galations 5:22, 23). I am not able to rise above who I am at this moment. Only You can transform me.
