The 100 individual devotions in this book alternate between prayers for the wife, the husband and their marriage. It is packed full of powerful prayers for all aspects and situations that will undoubtedly come our way. The author stressed the importance of praying Change Me, Lord ... and not just Change Him, Lord.  (Sometimes very hard to do, but we need the reminder.)

Scripture, devotions and prayers for each of the 100 days have titles such as:
  • When I Need to Trust God in the Situation
  • When We Need to Have Better Communication
  • When I Am Disappointed in Him
  • When I Must Rethink My Expectations
  • When I Need to Show Him Honor and Respect
  • When We Need a New Perspective
  • When He Seeks Financial Blessings
We sometimes face situations that are so difficult that we don't know how to pray or what to say.  This book has invaluable prayers that help to focus on trusting God to give us the peace and the courage that we need to get through the dark times.

I look forward to reading through this book again.  It is a great reference for good times and bad times, stressing the importance of prayer to build healthy and happy relationships.
