The Power of a Praying Wife

I finished this the other day after a *very* cursory reading. The book certainly had some good points: I should pray for my husband. The first chapter was by far the best, where it discussed God bringing our lives into line with His Word and will before we "changed" our husband - something impossible for us to do. Overall, though, I felt the book was, however, happy-happy Christianity. Usually the author told a story or two, referenced a scripture (in-context or not) to make her point, and then wrote a prayer that the reader should pray for her husband. Each "chapter" (a term I use loosely) had scripture verses listed as scripture to pray. That could be a good tool. However, I refuse to call them "Power Tools" as they are described in the book.

I hate panning this book so much, but I really felt like there was a lot of basic information, little (poorly-used) scriptural support, and wrote me another "Christian" to-do list.
