Editorial Reviews

For years I thought, 'Couldn't there just be a book to guide me through praying the Bible for my marriage?' (I'm a girl who needs tools--who needs hand-holding.) This book is that book. Finally, twenty-one years into marriage, I have gentle help engaging with God's Word related to my marriage in these pages and the stories therein. Sara Hagerty, author of Adore, Unseen, and Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet
Having loved, read, and reread Jodie Berndt's Praying the Scriptures for Your Children, I was thrilled to have Praying the Scriptures for Your Marriage as part of my devotional routine. Jodie's words are honest, approachable, and biblical. But what sets this apart from other marriage books is its accessibility! It is easy to use but not shallow or trite. Her words will always direct you to Scripture and to the most powerful influence in your marriage--Jesus Christ. Phylicia Masonheimer, founder and CEO of Every Woman a Theologian
While we'd say we are in a happy and successful marriage, we were blown away at how Praying the Scriptures for Your Marriage gave us an opportunity to grow individually and as a couple. It prompted questions we needed to ask ourselves and each other so we can go even deeper with God and in our relationship together. Whether your marriage is thriving or stuck in a rut, you need to read this book! And even better, this book is more than a onetime read. Using these questions and prayers as an annual marriage 'refresher' is a great plan--especially as your marriage season changes. Alexa and Carlos Penavega, actors and singers
Without a doubt, marriage is hard at times--and there are countless issues and challenges that can derail this vital relationship. Jodie Berndt understands how tough marriage can be, but she also knows that nothing is too difficult for the Lord. When we are guided by the very words of Scripture in lifting our union with our spouse before God, there's no telling how He will transform our marriage. Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family
Young married or seasoned couples, new believers, or mature saints--here is a dynamic new book for every marriage. We tend to forget that God's Word is called a sword in Ephesians 6:17. Every couple needs to become better at handling 'the sword' for their most important relationship this side of heaven. With gentle practicality, vast experience, and deep wisdom, Jodie Berndt takes her readers on a journey of discovery and discipline, emphasizing the power and vital importance of the Word in marriage and teaching couples how to engage that power for marriage during prayer every day. Matt Jacobson (FaithfulMan.com) and Lisa Jacobson (Club31Women.com)
Jodie Berndt continues to create resources that will richly bless your relationships through the invitation to pray specifically in ways that are guided by Scripture. Praying the Scriptures for Your Marriage is a helpful, practical, and beautiful guide to prioritizing your marriage and your spouse through prayer. Audrey and Jeremy Roloff, New York Times bestselling authors and the founders of The Marriage Journal
Jodie Berndt does it again! She takes the unfailing words of God and rocks us to the core with the power of prayer for marriage. When my marriage was in crisis and my prayers felt more like burdens than blessings, I needed this book. Rather than aiming our prayers at God to fix what's wrong in our marriages, Jodie encourages us to get curious with God about our frustrations and hurts through Scripture and prayer. The wit and grit that Jodie brings, partnered with the supreme wisdom of God's Word working itself out in prayer, will encourage anybody on the spectrum of time in marriage. Alisa Keeton, founder of Revelation Wellness and bestselling author of The Wellness Revelation
Jodie Berndt's books about how we can pray for our children give me peace every single day, and now the gift of receiving that same thing for our marriage is here! Praying the Scriptures for Your Marriage is honest and purposeful, practical and wonderful. Make this book your go-to anniversary, shower, or wedding gift. Every married couple should have a copy! Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Emmy Award-winning broadcaster, New York Times bestselling author, wife to NFL-loving Tim Hasselbeck, and mom to three living children
Marriage represents our deepest human relationship, and Jodie Berndt understands the power of prayer when it comes to establishing the intimacy and connection we crave. She makes it all very doable, no matter what your faith background looks like, how odd or cheesy it feels, or whether your spouse is willing to pray with you. As Jodie so invitingly puts it, 'Do what works.' Rebekah Lyons, bestselling author of Rhythms of Renewal
Packed full of humor, sensible advice, relatable marriage stories, and, most importantly, biblical truth, Praying the Scriptures for Your Marriage is an easy-to-read and encouraging marriage resource. Jodie Berndt has done a wonderful job writing a marriage book that weaves together the realities of what couples face and the significance of what's really important, equipping readers with confidence to take their relationship to God through purposeful prayer. The insights layered in every chapter are like treasures waiting to be discovered. Jennifer and Aaron Smith, authors of Marriage After God
Praying the Scriptures for Your Marriage is unlike any marriage book you've read. While offering plenty of rich insight and wise advice, Jodie Berndt also offers brilliant prayer guides to help you invite the power of God's transformational work and presence into your marriage. An outstanding read for any couple who wants to take their marriage to the next level. Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage and Cherish
The Praying the Scriptures series includes the most transformative books I've ever read, and this book is no exception. I can't think of a better tool for marriages than praying the Scriptures for our relationships. For the couple who is thriving, for the couple who is at the end of their rope and clinging to threadbare hope, for the couple who has endured impossibly painful life circumstances . . . no matter where you are in your marriage, Jodie Berndt reminds us of words God has given us to pray--his words! His loving truth is the best news for ourselves, our spouses, and our marriages! Thank you, Jodie, for another life-changing book. Nicole Zasowski, marriage and family therapist and author of What If It's Wonderful?
Too many husbands and wives today are failing at their most important vocation--marriage. The research tells us that couples who pray together are not only much more likely to steer clear of divorce court but also to be happily married (most of the time). Jodie Berndt's breathtakingly honest, wise, and funny Praying the Scriptures for Your Marriage shows couples how to pray well for each other and how to find a spiritually grounded intimacy that sustains them amidst the challenges of contemporary life. Highly recommended to anyone wishing to forge a strong and stable marriage. Brad Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project, University of Virginia
