Praying God's Word for Your Husband by Kathi Lipp

Praying God's Word for Your Husband by Kathi Lipp is a book full of inspiring ideas from the Bible on how to cover your spouse in prayer. My favorite part was the section on "His Relationship with You" and how we need to pray for him in relation to other influences in his life that might distract him from his thoughts of his wife.
What bothered me about this book was how often the author mentioned her first husband, her first marriage. I felt that it took credibility away from her and honestly, it rubbed me the wrong way. I understand that for some reason things didn't work out and she was divorced, but some things are better left unsaid. It might give some readers the idea that there's an easier way out.
While this book may help readers learn how to pray for their husbands, my hope is that it also gives them a closer relationship to their heavenly father and that He will provide the strength to mend marriages so that divorce is no longer an option.
This book was provided for review by Revell.
Available June 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
