We’d like to thank “small but terrible” blogger Joice Villamor for sharing with us her short review of Stormie Omartian’s The Power of a Praying Woman. To know more about her and her other interests, you can visit her blog I Am Joice

Prayer is powerful but do you know how to pray for yourself?

It may seem easier to pray for your spouse, your children, your friends, and your extended family, but God wants to hear your requests for your life too. He loves it when you come to Him for the things you need and ask Him to help you become the woman you have always longed to be.”

My friend, Alexie, gave this book last October 2007 as her birthday gift for me. I opened this again last week for my daily devotion. That night, I asked God to open my heart for whatever He wants to tell me before I sleep. A lot of truths were revealed again to me just by reading the first few pages and here’s one part which really spoke to me…

And whenever you are disappointed because your needs are not being met, talk to yourself and say, “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from HIM” (Psalm 62:5). Then tell God about all your needs and everything that is in your heart. …He is just waiting to hear it from you.

I guess it is true that praying for others is easier sometimes, especially when they share specific requests to you. Of course, I do pray for my needs everyday but God is so great for He reminded me that it is better to tell Him every desires of my heart and be specific about it. And that’s what He really wants me to do! =)

This book, I recommend to all women who wants to be drawn closer to God and know His plans and purposes for her life as she receives comfort and strength from Him each day. A total of 30 chapters and at the end of each chapter are these 2 very inspiring sections: “My Prayer to God” and “God’s Promises To Me”.

Be Blessed! 🙂
