2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Cynthia Danute Cekauskas, LCSW TOP 500 REVIEWER on Nov. 13 2012
Format: Paperback
In some ways this is a wonderfully written book. Just over two hundred pages in length it consists of thirty short chapters discussing topics having to do with the individual's husband i.e. 2. His Work; 3. His Finances; 8 His Fears. 16. His Priorities; 17. His Relationships, etc. I loved that the author concluded every chapter with a special Prayer for the husband related to the topic discussed. Along with that she quoted scripture in her Power Tools conclusions. That was a very nice touch and potentially useful for any loving wife praying for her husband.

Where I run into problems with this book is this: The author, like a number of individuals in the world seems to advocate a very negative approach in the wife's treatment of herself. As a professionally trained social worker who for years worked with families experiencing domestic violence I have, on a number of occasions had Ephesians Chapter 5 Verse 21 repeated back to me as justification for domestic violence. Those of you who are Christians are familiar with Verse 22 where it states: "Wives should be subordinate to their husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is head of his wife just as Christ is head of the church," All well and good and, if you are married to a truly good person, that is not a difficult thing to do. I, therefore, like when the author writes in Chapter 1: "Submission is something you give from your heart, not something demanded of you." Just pages later, however, the author takes a different turn and basically tells the reader what is REQUIRED of them as wives. THIS is where I take issue.

About halfway into Chapter 1 the author starts to take a stance which, in my opinion, is very anti-woman. Do not forget that in the same chapter of Ephesians cited above St.

As a happily married counselor and minister, I (foolishly) didn't really think I needed this book when it was first given to me. But I was professionally surprised and personally comforted when I went ahead and gave it a go. Omartian's writing is warm, open, honest, biblical, and right on about the common problems today's wives and marriages face. She provides a tangible solution that moves beyond the complaining and manipulation that desperation often leads to. She shows that no woman has to live in frustration, even if her husband is sometimes, well, shall we say, less than a knight in shining armor?
I feel sorry for the new bride who wrote in thinking she didn't need this book because 'only women on the verge of divorce' have days when they don't really "like" their husbands. That is exactly the kind of idealistic thinking that leads to divorce once real life hits, and the kind of thinking this book will help any woman, newly married, tried and true, or packing her bags, to move beyond so she can go do something constructive to keep her marriage healthy. No one can change another human being (unfortunately), but this book helps you learn how to ask God to change the both of you for a better, peaceful marriage.
As for one reviewer's claims that the author advocates abuse, that is a tragic and surprising misreading. This book is clearly aimed at the average, salvageable marriage where 2 people make mistakes and let their own selfishness get in the way of a peaceful relationship. Sound familiar, anyone? It is NOT an encouragement for an abused woman to martyr herself at the hands of a dangerous man. Read "The Power of a Praying Husband" to see how the Omartians believe women should be treated.
This, coupled with the above mentioned book for husbands, is a wonderful, wise, and effective tool in any marriage, young or old. If more people read this book, I would have a lot more free time. I highly recommend it, professionally and personally. (:

I think this book is the best source for praying for your husband. It is clear, precise and simple read. Stormy makes you look at yourself in order to accomplish the goals you have for your husband. You must first put into perspective what's most important, and that is reaching your full spiritual potential as a wife! I love the book and read it over and over for the prayers themselves. I am buying the Power of a Praying Husband, Mother and Woman next.

Thanks to this backward book that teaches women to not stand up for themselves and let a man verbally abuse them is the reason women will stay in bad marriages and teach their kids its ok to accept poor behavior. Its the life they were taught to live.
I believe God wants children in safe positive healthy environments. A wife can pray and be a strong single parent without taking insults from an abusive or addictive husband bringing everyone down. Pray and care for yourself and your children and provide a safe happy home. Pray for the husband and pray he will seek therapy and learn to respect women.
Stormie get a clue, women are not on this earth to cater to men and their every whim!
I hope Stormie will one day donate her book profits to a women's shelter and pray for them, they have some very sad stories to tell!

I've been married for 27 years and I regret that this book wasn't around in the early years of my marriage. I believe the sound advice and prayer suggestions would have saved me a lot anxiety and our marriage would have been stronger sooner! Prayer was always my last resort and I often didn't know how to pray about our circumstances. If you desire a life-long marriage to the same man, this is a must read.
