About the Author:
Sharon Jaynes is a popular conference speaker, avid blogger and best-selling author of numerous books and Bible studies. She is the co-founder of Girlfriends in God, a ministry with approximately five-hundred thousand online devotions subscribers, and a popular guest on Christian radio and television programs such as Revive Our Hearts, Focus on the Family, and Family Life Today. 

I was blessed with a copy of this book by author and TBCN in exchange for my honest opinion.

Here's what I thought:
In the past few months, I have been convicted of my need to really pray for my husband more frequently, and more effectively. But man times, I struggle with knowing what to pray, how to pray, etc... God has been impressing on my heart the importance of praying Scripture over him. As I came across this book, I felt compelled to read it, and it did not disappoint. Sharon opens with a chapter on the purpose and power of prayer. Then she expounds by giving a body part to pray for and what the spiritual symbolism for that body part is. For example, "His Mind" is what he thinks about, or "His Legs" - his stand on truth. As you invest a few minutes a day to pray from "head to toe", you are becoming a warrior for your husband in the spiritual realm. After the intro and explanation, Sharon includes 30 days of Scriptures and Prayers that correspond with those Scriptures you can pray. 
Although this book is geared for wives to pray for husbands, I noticed and felt led as I was praying to pray a variety of these Scriptures for my children, friends, and others God laid on my heart. This book could be used in many situations. It is definitely a must have for wives!

If you are married, how do you pray for your husband? Maybe you aren't married at the moment, but have people in your life you need to pray for but sometimes find a lack of words. Have you developed effectiveness in praying Scripture? I don't think we can ever go wrong praying God's Word for those we love. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
