The Inside Column 20/4

Posted in: The Inside Column- May 13, 2012 No Comments

A very warm welcome to all this morning, especially the mothers as we celebrate Mothers Day.

There’s a saying that goes “Behind every successful man is a woman” , so today we review a book that is in the Church library, The Power of a Praying Wife by popular Christian author and speaker Stormie Omartian. In this book she pinpoints common marital struggles and reveals the miraculous way that disciplined prayer can alleviate heartache and sustain unity.

The trials and pressures of modern life can make the prospect of a fulfilled, meaningful marriage seem impossible. According to Omartian, a marriage’s success depends upon “laying down all claim to power in and of yourself, and relying on God’s power to transform you, your husband, your circumstances, and your marriage.”

Omartian attributes the success of her own 25-year marriage to dedicated prayer for every area of her husband’s life; from his finances and his work to his integrity and his temptations. Each of the 30 chapters offer ‘bite sized’ portions with insight into areas that are especially important to men, followed by “power tools” (inspiring, topical Scripture and prayers ) to guide one’s prayer life and transform a woman’s mind with regard to her husband.

This practical read will encourage women to trust God to change their spouse, and undoubtedly refocus one’s perspective on God’s power rather than one’s own personal predicament.

Stormie Omartian is the bestselling author of The Power of a Praying® books (more than 10 million copies sold worldwide), Stormie, Just Enough Light for the Step I’m On, and The Prayer That Changes Everything®. Stormie and her husband, Michael, have been married for 32 years and have three grown children.
