I was reminded of this little book while having lunch with a dear friend this past week. It is a lovely collection of prayers for husbands and wives to share with and for one another. It has a broad range of subjects that it covers including good times and bad. The book also has a litany for celebrating Sabbath as well as a yearly retreat for couples. Joel and I have used this little book off and on through out our marriage. It was an impulse buy one day at Barnes and Noble during our second year of marriage and it has been a blessing. It helped us get started in our celebration of Sabbath and has helped us retreat with one another to grow in the bond that God has created between us.
I recommend it if you want to pray for your spouse but I warn you that you may very well end up in a deeper relationship with them and with God. I would also recommend Wangerin's As For Me and My House.
