The Power of a Praying Woman

Hey Everyone,

Happy Tuesday... I hope you are having a wonderful day. My day has been filled with so much joy, not just today, but the previous days as well and the world did not give it to me; my Lord did. Today is Book-It Tuesday, this is the day that I like to share with you all the books that have helped change my life. "The Power of a Praying Woman" by Stormie Omaritan is one of those books.

Usually, I'm hesitant about reading a book of prayers, but this book helped me to have a breakthrough in my prayer life, we all struggle with prayer and what to pray for. Sometimes we find ourselves falling into habitual prayer, just going through the motions out of obligation; no real connection to our Holy God. There is no shame in pulling from a book like this, it helps to re-awaken our own spirit; helps us to refocus on what is truly important to our Father.

Another great feature about this particular book is, she shares some of her own testimonials and there is some teaching in it as well along with bible scriptures. The prayers are specific to the need, such as, prayer for self-control, worship, obedience, wisdom, healing, etc. You just might want to add this one to your library.

You can read an Interview that Stormie Omaritan did in 2013. Below are some scriptures that you may find beneficial to your own prayer life, the link I pulled this from is at the bottom.

Continued blessings and love to you and your family <3
