—Holley Gerth, author of You’re Already Amazing

“Every wife wants to know the best way to encourage and support her husband. The best place to begin is by having a conversation with the God who created him. God knows every detail about your husband—his struggles, his concerns, his joys, his fears, his hopes, and his dreams. After all, it’s God who wired your husband exactly the way he is. Sharon Jaynes invites you to pray for your husband by releasing the creation (your husband) back to his Creator (our gracious God) and praying for your husband from head to toe each day. This collection of prayers will be an encouragement to your husband, and in the process, you’ll be drawn closer to God.”

Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe could not have arrived at a more perfect time. With life moving ahead at a near-frantic pace while I attempt—in vain—to keep up, this book is a reminder to slow it all down. My husband needs not only my love, encouragement, and support but most important, my prayers. And not just any boilerplate prayer, but specific prayers over every square inch of his body, mind, and even his sexuality (one of my personal favorites!).”
—Fawn Weaver, founder of HappyWivesClub.com

“In the nineteen years I’ve been married to my best friend, I’ve lived the ‘for better or for worse’ part of my wedding vows. I’ve learned so much and assembled quite the tool belt in my journey to love and honor my husband. But nothing—nothing—has been as powerful as bowing my heart and knee and simply praying for him. Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe is a practical, powerful guide for blessing not only your spouse’s life but also your own. This resource will take your marriage to a new level!”
—Kristen Welch, author of We Are THAT Family blog

“One of the most important things we can do as wives is to pray daily for our husbands. Sharon Jaynes has given us a great resource to cover every aspect of our husbands’ lives and character with Scripture-based prayer over the course of thirty days. This will be a book I keep on my nightstand for years to come!”
—Melanie Shankle, author of Sparkly Green Earrings and The Big Mama blog

I truly believe that every wife ought to try to be a blessing to her husband, but how?  Sharon Jaynes' book, Praying for your Husband from Head to Toe, is a thirty day prayer guide that takes wives through a selfless, scripture-based prayer journey for their husbands. I am convinced that God will move in marriages in a big way as women use this book to daily pray for their husband.
—Lindsey Nicole (Isham) Graves, National Speaker & Author of No Sex in the City: One Virgin’s Confessions of Love, Lust, Dating, and Waiting

Prayer is a great tool that Christians have access to. I pray for everything from having a good day to when I have a huge problem and know that only God can help me. One problem I have though is praying for others. I usually don't know what to pray or I start to and end up going back to me. I know it sounds pretty selfish but I have just never been good at praying for others. I can pray small things for them in my head but if you ask me to do...

Some times, I feel like I don't quite know what to pray, and because of that I find myself praying the same "canned" prayers over and over. Of course this isn't always the case, but I am so happy to have found this excellent guide from Sharon Jaynes called Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe. I...
