Two Hearts Praying as One

Dennis Rainey, Author, Barbara Rainey, Joint Author Multnomah Publishers $9.99 (96p) ISBN 978-1-59052-035-2
The cofounders of FamilyLife, a branch of Campus Crusade for Christ, bring their insights to the matter of a faith-filled marriage in the latest installment of their Family First series, a 30-day prayer devotional designed for husbands and wives. ""Praying together may be the single most important spiritual discipline you and your spouse will ever share,"" say the Raineys (Growing a Spiritually Strong Family and Moments Together for Couples). Using personal anecdotes as well as stories they've encountered through their ministry, they propose that prayer with a spouse can reduce conflict, protect against divorce and even improve a couple's sex life. Each day of their devotional includes suggestions for prayer and a reflection section designed to spark deeper thought and discussion. Although geared toward marriages in which both partners are committed Christians, the book appropriately offers ideas for those whose spouses do not share their faith. From practical advice (how to pray) to spiritual generosity (prayers for the salvation of all people), this little volume offers readers warm encouragement in their prayer lives.
