Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe by Sharon Jaynes (Book Review)

Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe
A Daily Guide to Scripture Based Prayer

 Many thanks to the author and Blogging for Books for providing me a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe is an enjoyable, friendly read that quickly engages the reader in prayer.  The book is practical, applicable, and an absolutely fantastic resource for wives looking to impact the lives of their husbands through faith and prayer. Part 1 is 21 pages long and explains the purpose of this book, the motivation behind the writing, and the process of praying for your husband based on the landmarks from head to toe.  Part 2 is a 30 day prayer guide that helps you find the words to praise your husband and support him with your faith.  The ending of the book has three additional sections to aid in special circumstances where prayer is often most needed; prayer for husbands who have not yet found the Lord, prayer for husbands that are also blessed as fathers, and prayer for husbands suffering from chronic or long-term illness.  Sharon Jayne’s writing style is conversational and comfortable.  The prayers are concise, but powerful.  She also offers a 30 day prayer dare that sends you daily reminders and prayers via email for 30 days to compliment this novel.
