Much needed and time well spent I needed to have God speak to my heart and have this much needed insight of how to be the best wife and support to my husband that I can be. Excellent guide Very helpful in guiding you in prayer. Sometimes I don't know how or what to pray and this helped me stay consistent in praying.
Jan 01, Amanda Phelps rated it it was amazing. The title of my review on Amazon was "Prayer: A tie any man can wear with any suit". I have a hard time knowing quite where to begin when writing a review, so I'll start with a story to explain my title. Early in our relationship, my husband and I were Christmas shopping for my sister's boyfriends - the men who would eventually become their husbands. Because neither of us knew either of them very well, we had no idea what to get for them, so we were just walking through the mall, store after sto The title of my review on Amazon was "Prayer: A tie any man can wear with any suit".
Because neither of us knew either of them very well, we had no idea what to get for them, so we were just walking through the mall, store after store, looking at the displays and hoping that something would jump off the shelves at us shouting "Me! I'm perfect for him! My husband explained to me that choosing a tie for someone else is very difficult because it's such a personal preference - color, pattern, etc.
I was surprised to learn this but it's been confirmed to me a few times over the years, so I assume it must be true and, as a result, I've never bought a tie for anyone except my husband, and even those have only ever been fun "theme" ties for various holidays, although he has asked for my opinion when choosing ties to go with new suits once or twice over 20 years. My point is that my prayers for him - covering him with scripture promises for his daily life - that's a tie that will go with anything he wears, day in and out. Books particularly those that involve relationships with God are very personal, emotional experiences - like choosing a tie, I imagine.
So what is impressed on my heart as I read may not move you the same way. I want to encourage you to read this book for yourself and I don't want to miss that thing that would spur you to spend time daily, praying for your life-long partner. Please, please believe me when I say that this is a book that you won't regret reading. There's something in it for you, even if you're praying for a husband you haven't even met yet.
Single, married, newlyweds, marriages with more than 20 years behind them, marriages in perfect harmony and bliss and marriages experiencing troubles or even on the brink of divorce - every one of us can be praying for our husbands and God's Word tells us "When a believing person prays, great things happen" James NCV that's at the end of the chapter on Landmarks. So your experience with this book will be different than mine, but here is my experience for your consideration.
What I love - and I really do mean "love" - about Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe is that Sharon has given this wife - this Ezer - a moving, practical and doable way to soak my husband in prayer every day. And those prayers aren't about changing him or making him see the "error of his ways". I'm praying for his protection and his guidance. And all the while, God is speaking to MY heart, and pointing out the areas where I can be an answer to my own prayer for my husband.
The investment in the book reaps a value far beyond that of the ink and pages or pixels and screen on which the words are written.
It has lead to a greater investment in my relationship with my Heavenly Father that is paying off in a richer relationship with my husband. But the benefits reach far beyond those 2 relationships and I hope and pray that you experience the same. Dec 02, Jalynn Patterson rated it it was amazing.

My Review: Praying for our husbands should go hand in hand with our marriage relationship but alot of times it falls by the way side probably more times than we care to admit. The author Sharon Jaynes, knows all to well the power of prayer. Praying for the men in her life has eventually transformed them.
The story of her father Allan becoming born again brought tears to my eyes. It was simply a marvelous story of a man that had been struggling in this life without Christ and the things that literally and figuratively brought him to his knees. Praying for our husbands should become second nature to us as well as our number one priority.
For this is the one thing we can do to help him and ourselves in a life transforming way. The author has created a very simple daily guide to prayer that will lead the way to a strong prayer life where we include our husband and all that he will or may encounter. The guide is split up into two separate sections. The first part is basically explaining the hows and whys of the whole process and the second part is thirty days of praying scripture over your better half.
God created marriage and He wants it to succeed so that we may glorify Him. There is no better way to do that than pray over our spouses. Praying for your Husband from Head to Toe is the perfect book to get you started. If you would like to purchase this book, you can go to this link for information. Dec 03, A. Cuddy rated it it was amazing. And how-tos of praying for a husband.
It was truly touched by it. This book really opened my eyes to the struggles that our husbands encounter each day. The author, Sharon Jaynes, has created for us a day prayer and scripture guide to equip us to develop a habit of purposeful prayer for our husbands… prayers for all that he may encounter during his day.
In addition, the author has added 3 great chapters in the Appendix. I am recommending this book to women everywhere. Consider giving this book to the new brides in your lives. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review. Dec 16, Callie Domingues rated it it was amazing.
Sharon starts out the book with explaining the power and the purpose for praying for my husband. The real true benefits that little ole me has been given to pray for and over my husband. Start out the day covering my hubby in prayer instead of praying over the yucky situations he lands in during the day.
Of course, pray then too…but you know what I mean. We might see white knights, tall dark and handsome and all that fairy tale nonsense on day one but on married day life might be looking a little bit bleak. This is where your praying for your husband is usually kicked into high gear. So instead of waiting until that point of failure falls on me, I need to be persistent and cry out to God in earnest.
Praying for the situation, praying that my hubby is covered from the temptations, the evil, the discouragement, the feelings of failure, praying for his strength, helping to prepare him for the daily battles he may face.
These sections are chock full of Bible verses and prayers specific to the previous three subjects. Worth Every Moment. If you want to cover your man in prayer from head to toe, this is one book that you will need to add to your arsenal. I am beyond pleased with the book and I know that you will be as well. I pray you are as blessed by this book as I have been.
And yet, one more reason to love this book…I can use it over and over and over and over and over again…perfect! I was sent an advance copy from the author as part of the book launch team. Mar 26, Tiffany rated it it was amazing. First off, I'm not married I was skeptical and a little ashamed that I honestly had gotten to a place in my life where I didn't know how to pray for my Dad.
Our relationship was starting to get a bit shaky and something had to change There are definitely things in this book that I skipped over First off, I'm not married There are definitely things in this book that I skipped over. Some simply pertained only to a husband-wife relationship with no other way to word it. That's the purpose of the book, so I'm not complaining, just stating fact. All in all - it was well worth the eBook price I paid. Within three days I was already getting discouraged, but I stuck with it and even managed to finish up a little early. I felt weird at first, praying pre-scripted prayers; but on the flip side of that is the structure of the written prayers give you words when you can't find any.
About halfway through if even that far in , I started feeling promptings to add different prayer requests into the prayers.. The beautiful thing about this book is that it doesn't take long to see change in your own life as you pray for someone so dear in your life. Did I see change in the subject of my prayers? Of course - but I'm not sure how much of that was a result of a readjustment of my own attitudes, heart and spirit condition. But did it work? My mother ran out to get a copy and has been trying to talk all of her friends into getting their own copies.
This book invites you for a 30 day prayer journey. In 30 days, you can learn a new habit or break one. It's what you need to get the adjustment you need to relearn how to see someone through the eyes and heart of the God we read about in scripture and call Abba.
Better yet, it's a lot like practicing manuscript letters - the more you do it, the easier it is to pray your own prayers and keep an eye out for verses to inspire your next prayer time. It's like feeding someone fish vs. I now know how to pray for my father - head to toe. Mar 14, Mary-ann rated it it was amazing. As a wife, you have been given the privilege of serving as a mighty prayer warrior for your husband.

Often when we pray, we pray for our husbands to change or for their minds to change or for the healing of their bodies or for an attitude change. Less often, we pray for our husband's whole being. Jaynes has seen first hand how prayer has changed the men in her life. Often times we try to control our prayers for our husbands. We demand that God make him the Sharon Jaynes has written a book to teach you how praying for your husband from head to toe can really impact both your own and his life.
We demand that God make him the way we want him to be. What we forget is that we do not control our husbands or God. God controls our husbands. Jaynes shows us how to give up control and pray that God will help make our husbands into the Godly man that He wants him to be. We need to pray specifically for his mind, eyes, ears, mouth, neck, shoulders, heart, back, arms, hands, ring finger, side, sexuality, legs, knees and feet.
She uses the first part of the book to explains why we need to pray for each of the areas on our husbands. From his mind and his thoughts to his eyes and what he sees, Jaynes tells us why praying for his knees helps to "bend them in humility". She covers each area and tells why it is important in prayer. The second part of the book is 30 days of guided prayer. Each body part has a scripture and a prayer suggestion.
She encourages the reader to use their own words but gives some suggestions if you need help. Will this book bring about a change in your husband? There is no guarantee of that. However, God may bring circumstances into your husbands life which will help him to change in ways that God wants him to. It will also help your feelings and attitude change toward your husband. It may open your eyes as to why your husband acts in a certain way or why you feel a certain way. Write a customer review. Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.
Verified Purchase. This is the best book I have ever found about praying for others; not just your husband. The book is divided into 2 parts. The first section covers the power and purpose of prayer. He already has your best interests in mind. He already has your husband's best interests in mind. Amazingly, He invites you to play a part in the miracle of making your husband into the man He created him to be. This section has a different set of verses for each of the 30 days of a month. Each day there is a verse for 'His mind', 'His eyes', 'His ears', 'His mouth', etc.
The thing that makes this so exciting and refreshing for me is that I see verses that seem especially to apply to my son, my boss at work, my daughter, or myself, and not just my husband. It is a prayer book that is personal and helps me connect with praying prayers that are pertinent to the issues my husband or son or daughter or myself is facing at this very time. Hopefully, this will light a fire under your prayer life. It did for me. I have been looking all over for something like this!
I watched the movie Warfare I believe thats what its called and I knew I had to start praying for my husband and for our marriage. I wanted something already there, something that was scripture based prayers, and already together. I honestly had no clue how I found this book but the Father knew I needed it and I purchased it right away! I love reading it and praying with this book every night and morning. Like the author states Its a 30 day prayer book and I love reading at least 2 days worth morning and night. Most importantly I love that the prayers are scripture based, and not just some random prayers, there is always a verse to refer to when praying and I really enjoy that.
I recommend that you read the first couple chapters where the author speaks before jumping into prayer I was so eager to get started praying that I would read some of her commentary at the beginning and then end it with a day of prayer.
Every wife needs this book! I not only pray for my husband but at the end of each prayer day I ask the Father to apply it to my life as well. The first two chapters of this book were excellent. The scriptures are taken grossly out of context. Basically, if you think Jer. For example, claiming the favor Joseph found in Genesis 39 for your husband I found myself dumbfounded.
See a Problem?
I am just shocked. And then to be asked that your husband be known just as Enoch was known You could pray that your husband has such a walk, but to go straight for the fame of Enoch over your husband? If your husband had the walk of Enoch, you would not be purchasing this book; I guarantee it. And then on day two the author is using Deuteronomy , which tells what Moses spoke to Joshua as he was given leadership over Israel.
Please be careful. Study your Bible to understand the context of the Scripture. This book has an amazing way of using scripture to pray for our husbands. As wives, we are called to pray and respect and honor our husbands. Men are referred to as the "head" but women are often the "neck" that turns the head yes! We have influence especially in our prayer life. Not only did my husband benefit from this book, but I did as well. The daily scripture that I was immersed in, was a blessing to me.
I've given this book to countless sisters and all LOVE the book. The author is not afraid to pray for anything! She boldly and beautifully uses scripture to help us pray for intimacy and doesn't shy away from asking the Lord to protect our husbands from the sexual temptations they face often. It's in a "day 1-day 30" format, but doesn't have to be read in that fashion.
