Couples Who Pray - By Squire Rushnell, Louise DuArt
The Most Intimate Act Between a Man and a Woman
In this book celebrity couples share how a commitment to prayer has made a difference in their marriages. Research presented in the book claims prayer will improve your relationship and decrease your risk of divorce. The book challenges couples to commit to praying together daily for 40 days.
You don't really need to read the book, just start praying together for at least 5 minutes a day. If you take this challenge you can see for yourself how prayer works! I believe praying together as a couple is a fantastic idea. I liked the concept of this book much better than the book itself. The book was poorly written, and did not offer any practical advice on prayer. This is not a book for deep spiritual growth. It is mostly just a collection of stories about prayer from minor celebrities.
The book didn't say how having children factors in to praying. I think only one couple mentioned praying with kids. My husband and I don't usually pray alone together, but we pray as a family every day. Since reading this book we have started praying as a couple too. I definitely recommend praying together. I do not recommend this book.
