Wow! The Power of a Praying Woman by Stormie Omartian -- full of wisdom and help!
Dawn's Recommendation: 5 of 5 Stars
Overview (from Amazon):

  • cover every area of life with prayer
  • maintain a right heart before God
Each chapter concludes with a prayer you can follow or use as a model for your own prayers. Women of all ages will find hope and purpose for their lives with The Power of a Praying Woman.

What I liked: How in tune the author is with God. I found myself, over and over again, nodding as I read. I was experiencing the same things in my walk with God. It was a joy to get confirmation and encouragement for my faith journey. This is not a fluff book. It is for women who are ready to go deep in their faith, helping them with tough topics (forgiveness, obedience, wisdom, trouble, relationships, bearing fruit, negativity, temptations, etc.). I thank God for how he has/is using Ms. Omartian!

I liked how the book was set up:
*Ms. Omartian's words on a particular topic (example: Standing Against the Enemy)
*A prayer based off of Scripture to pray

*Scripture dealing with the topic

The book was so good that I joted down many notes in my journal to reflect on later.
What I Didn't like: Nothing

P.S. I want to buy this book for all my girlfriends!
