I’ve never been one for “couples’ books.”
This book caught my attention, though, after hearing several well-respected men of God talk about their prayer lives with their wives and how it has impacted their ministry and their marriage. So I thought I’d check it out. And it turned out to be a great book. You can tell where the authors’ hearts are at throughout this book, even though they can be pretty cheesy sometimes with illustrations and examples. It is evident in their marriage that prayer plays a vital role, along with the many other examples of marriages that have been impacted by prayer, including Denzel and Pauletta Washington, Kathie Lee and Frank Gifford, and others.
While many couples would vouch that they pray on a daily basis, this book takes a closer look at how and why couples pray together, and how to strengthen that connection between husband, wife, and God. The examples in the book show that prayer in marriage takes that relationship to a whole new level in many different aspects of life.
No matter where you are in your marriage (or even if you’re planning on marriage), it can always get stronger. Rushnell and Duart propose that prayer is that strengthening factor. I plan on integrating the steps and concepts found in this book into my future marriage. Check it out.
