Praying for Your Husband Head to Toe is book that every married woman should own. I found that the author did an excellent job helping her sisters in Christ know what areas need to be covered. I’ll admit often I come to the Lord in prayer for my husband and am a little lost in exactly what to say and ask for. This book has helped me to be more effective in my daily cries to my God for the needs of my husband. I totally like that it’s not just prayers said but actually taking the daily prayer prayed directly from the scriptures found in the Bible.
There are several sections in this book. There’s Part 1 which introduces us to the power and purpose of prayer in our lives as well as the landmarks of prayer from head to toe. The landmarks consist of His Mind (What He Thinks About), His Eyes (What He Looks At), His Ears (What He Listens To), His Mouth ( The Words He Speaks), His Neck (The Decisions That Turn His Head), His Shoulders (His Burdens & Worries), His Heart (Who or What He Loves), His Back (His Protection), His Arms (His Strength), His Hands (His Work), His Ring Finger (His Marriage), His Side (His Relationships), His Sexuality (His Needs For Physical Intimacy), His Legs (His Stand on the Truth), His Knees (His Relationship with God), and His Feet (His Walk).
Part 2 of the book is where the reader will start their daily prayers for their husband. There are 30 days of praying scripture over your husband. Each day every landmark will be applied to scripture and a short prayer follows. It seems a little odd at first but as you continue to do so each day you may even take the example prayers given and add you own input to God for your husband. You could start at anytime or the very beginning of the month. And even after you got through the 30 days, I would say do it again and again! This a wonderful book to jump start a healthy prayer life over your husband!
The Appendix follows the second part and includes specific areas of prayer (salvation, fatherhood, healing) as well as a Time for Reflection, and a 30 day prayer dare. You could chose to use this book with a close friend, womens group, or all on your own.
This is unique and I really like that it bases all the prayers off scripture. If not already, I imagine that this book will make you hungry for reading and getting more into the word of God as well. My highest of recommendations!
