PRAYER IS THE KEY TO HEALTHY MARRIAGE Jul 25, 2006
I commend them for finding and sharing their how-to's in a special prayer relationship that is VITAL in a healthy marriage. As we focus on God loving through us, and bonding marriages we give God a platform for His Power to come through our marriage. I agree we can't use our own power, but must depend upon prayer! AMEN!!
For the Christian Couple's Nightstand Nov 30, 2001
Another vulnerably honest, poetic, daily-living tool from the Wangerin pen... this time, however, delight in hearing from both Wangerins. My husband and I were looking for some help in learning how to pray together (I longed to overcome my awkwardness with praying aloud), and in one of those on-our-knees moments, found this to be just the tender nudge we needed. In a candid style that seems to characterize both Thanne and Walter, the prayers will assuredly give voice to a spectrum of painful and joyous times in the life of a Christian couple. It is a dynamic reference allowing a couple to find easily a prayer language of their own and includes suggestions for private retreat, litanies, and devotions to enrich any married couple seeking to grow together in Christ. The moving Foreward nearly stands alone, but we plan to pair PRAYERBOOK with AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE for wedding gifts.
