Review: Prayers for New Brides: Putting on God's Armor After the Wedding Dress by:Jennifer O. White

Prayers for New Brides: Putting on God's Armor After the Wedding Dress
About the Book:
A new wife is seldom aware of the intense spiritual battle threatening her dreams of happily ever after. Often, she enters the marriage without the benefit of great examples, biblical knowledge, and mentors offering godly wisdom. The battle begins and she is unarmed. Can her faith survive? Will her marriage become another divorce statistic? Prayers for New Brides will empower her to protect her heart and marriage. Within these short chapters she will: 

- Learn biblical truths about marriage, the spiritual battle, and prayer 
- Pray in agreement with God’s will for her marriage 
- Activate these truths in her life through study, journaling, and intentional conversations with her husband and other wives. 

Marriage is God’s design. He has a battle plan, the power and the resources to win. When a wife knows who God is and what He can do, she can trust Him to sustain her and her marriage. Her joy will be complete as she allows Him to enable her to do more for her union than she can imagine.

My Review:
 The war on your marriage, I believe begins before you ever find a mate in the womb or even at conception. The devils main goal is to steal kill and destroy and that means everything that would align you with God's perfect will for your life. We as woman and eventually wives are in a unique position, we are to be submissive to our husbands alone and when it comes to the enemy we are to fight to our very last breath for our families and until you have children that will include your husband as well.

 The minute that you slide that ring on your finger your battle begins. You have to uphold God's values at all costs. And the author realized and learned this the hard way. she didn't learn it until well into her second marriage when it to was indeed in trouble. But armed with God and His army she defeated the hold that the devil had placed on her life. She came out victorious!

 I myself have been married for almost 21 years and you can be so in love and never see the evil coming until it hits you right between the eyes. Let me tell you from experience it is hard to get down in that ditch and fight when everything in you tells you to run or give up. Jennifer gives you clear concise understanding in Prayers for New Brides that can help you start out on the right foot, right away. If you enjoy Bible studies this book would be perfect for a group! Each book includes a Wife's Call to Action and some simple prayers to help you make sure your marriages foundation is strong.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Cross Focused Reviews.
