Rezension zu "Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe: A Daily Guide to Scripture-Based Prayer" von Sharon Jaynes
Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe: A Daily Guide to Scripture-Based Prayer is exactly what it says it is.
In the first part of the book Sharon Jaynes introduces her readers to the power and purpose of prayer as well as the sixteen landmarks used as a guide to cover your husband in prayer from head to toe. Each landmark represents a body part: his mind, eyes, ears, mouth, neck, shoulders, heart, back, arms, hands, ring finger, side, sexuality, legs, knees and feet. His mind represents what he thinks about; his eyes, what he looks at, his ears, what he listens to, and so on all the way down to his feet representing the path he takes.
The second and main part of the book consists of a thirty-day prayer guide. Each day contains scripture for each landmark and a prayer based on and incorporating that Bible passage. The daily prayers last between five to ten minutes. What a great way to invest your time!
One way to use the book is to start at the beginning of a month so that the days of prayer correspond with the dates of the month. Or just jump right in and start at any time of the month. After completing the thirty days of prayer you can start over again. I most certainly will. The book closes with a time for reflection.
The prayers are written as though your husband were a Christian. But if he isn’t, the appendix offers prayers for his salvation. Other additional resources include prayers for his fatherhood if he is a dad and prayers for healing if he is sick. The book can be used individually or with girlfriends and as part of a women’s group at church.
Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe is a unique and powerful tool that will no doubt enrich your prayer life. It would make a perfect gift for your girlfriends and female family members, whether they recently got engaged, are newlywed or have been married for decades.
