“Couples Who Pray Together”—Book review

I know Sharon and Ed do.
I’ve always admired that.
At 4 a.m.

But 4 a.m.? I’d rather work out a different time to pray with my husband.Couples_Who_Pray

So when I saw this title come up free on BookSneeze’s review site, I grabbed it.

Because it’s something I want to be:
Couples Who Pray: The Most Intimate Act between a Man and a Woman.

Jeff and I pray individually but haven’t succeeded in routinely praying together. I was hoping this book would give me some secret weapon to make it happen.

Alas, it didn’t.

But it has motivated me to suggest we try the 40 Day Prayer Challenge.”

The authors suggest you first fill out their prayer questionnaire (perhaps helpful but certainly not necessary). Then commit to praying together for a minimum of five minutes a day.

The bulk of the book though isn’t about the Challenge, but testimonies to answered prayers in others’ marriages. Some famous, some not. But all positive.

The three sections are:

  • Section 1: Major Benefits of Couples Praying Together
    Includes why praying together is marriage’s most intimate act.
  • Section 2: Taking the 40 Day Prayer Challenge
    How you do it and the remarkable power of prayer.
  • Section 3: Factors during your forty days
    Includes chapters on the real enemy of your marriage, forgiveness power, prayer and money, and six steps to a happy marriage.

These steps to prayer are covered in the book and are also listed on their website.

HOW TO PRAY

  1. Just start talking to God. A conversation.
  2. Set aside the time, same time, everyday.
  3. Start with an attitude of gratitude.
  4. Confess your shortcomings & ask forgiveness.
  5. Pray out loud.
  6. Keep it short.
  7. Normal language - no thee's and thou's.
  8. Pray for your marriage.
  9. Pray for others and yourself.
  10. Expect God will answer your prayers.

Overall, the book was fine, but I probably should have been praying instead of reading.

Yet perhaps reading about others’ success in praying together will push me forward to see what can happen in my own house. We’ll see...

LOL should have been praying instead of reading. I have meet only two couples in my life who pray together and for the most part always felt it was an individual thing. I don't know their secret weapon

I have never seen such a good voodoo spellcaster as the great Dr. Maway in my life. sometimes last month I had the worst fight with my man. he came home drunk and I saw lipstick stains all over his white shirt. As if that wasn't enough, a strange lady kept calling and texting him. Reading the text messages broke my heart, I couldn't hold my calm. So many cruel thoughts came to my head and as you can guess we had a big fight the next day. my boyfriend moved out and started living with the strange lady. I couldn't imagine that our relationship, which has been the source of my motivation, would collapse in a few hours. I tried to get it back but it seems to have enveloped it with a strange force. because he wouldn't listen to me and all the memories we had meant nothing to him. so I decided to seek help. I saw a review on Dr. Maway and also checked his website (https://www.drmawaylovespell.com/guestbook). I decided to call him. I contacted him by whatsapp and as the reviews say.
This spell caster is so genuine, accurate and fast, his spirit spells are so powerful. last week I was able to restore my broken relationship and today I have been with my boyfriend for 8 days and our love seems to increase every day.
Dr. Maway did what he promised and everything went exactly as he promised. If you want help with any relationship-related situation or any other pressing issue, I highly recommend the great spellcaster. contact him on his whatsapp: https://api.whatsapp.com/send?phone=2348164690976

He has active herbal remedies for diseases, infection and viruses. you can get him via; Email: Abolospell@gmail.com or you may decide to send him a msg on whatsapp here +27743411428. thanks doctor you are the best.
