About the book:
As a wife, you have been given the privilege of serving as a mighty prayer warrior for your husband. Yet sometimes, even when poised with the best of intentions, you may find the task overwhelming. You wonder: What should I pray? How should I pray? What prayers does he need right now? 
In Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe, Sharon Jaynes maps out sixteen landmarks to help you consistently and effectively cover your husband in prayer. From his mind and the thoughts he thinks, to his eyes and the images he sees, all the way down to his feet and the path he takes, Sharon teaches you how to pray for your husband in ways that are powerful, practical, and life-changing. 
The 30-day prayer guide provides Scriptures for each day along with corresponding prayers to target the crucial areas of every man’s life. You’ll be equipped and empowered to establish the habit of purposeful prayer in just a few dedicated minutes each day.

Perfect for group use or individual reflection, this book maps out a memorable and reproducible pattern of prayer to strengthen your marriage, deepen your personal prayer life, and cover your husband from head to toe—in ways that will lift not only his spirit, but yours as well.
So if you've read my blog for any amount of time, you've no doubt read about my struggle with prayer.  For some reason, I always feel like I struggle with prayer and the right words to say.  This book has been a tremendous asset in showing me how to pray for my husband.

Sharon Jaynes witnessed first hand what praying for a man could do. She saw her prayers for her father answered as he eventually turned towards God and away from destructive behavior. Jaynes had also seen the effect her prayers had in the life of her husband. She wrote Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe to help other women learn how to pray for their husbands without trying to control God and their husbands in the process.

The author has broken each thing down from what your husband sees, his strength, etc. Then she incorporates all of these things into 30 prayers. I think the part that I have liked the most is how she talks about how sometimes prayer is all you can do and that it really does change how you think about your husband. I know that God is powerful and I know that talking to Him about my husband is one of the best things I can do for him and our marriage. I highly recommend this book!
