I received this copy from Netgalley in exchange for my unbiased review.

official blurb
Do you feel as though you are going through the motions in your marriage? Is your relationship feeling a bit frayed at the edges? Prayer is one of the most powerful tools God has given us to change ourselves and our relationships from the inside out—which is why it’s the best resource we can possibly turn to for revitalizing a marriage.   New York Times bestselling author Bruce Wilkinson brings you this book of guided prayers for seeking God’s blessings upon your marriage. As you pray in specific ways for your relationship, you’ll experience new joys, and your confidence will grow as you see God’s daily provision abound for you and your spouse.  As the Bible says, “A cord of three strands is not quickly broken” Ecclesiastes 4:12. Experience the blessings and strength of a threefold marriage when you devote yourself to daily prayer without ceasing.

my blurb!
A daily reading book to read with your spouse to strengthen your marriage.

what i liked
I really enjoyed this book.  It featured prayers that I read out loud over my marriage. I read them with my husband and without him but always enjoying the prayers that were included.
The writing was well done, and there’s nothing in the book that I didn’t agree with.  The prayers were well thought out and powerful!
I got this book as an e-book and I would be really interested in getting a paper copy- it’s definitely the type of book that you could make your way through and then just start it over again.

what i didn't like
This isn’t exactly a negative, but I was expecting an entire book of prayers. Similar to A Diary of Private Prayer – that I read every day.  This book does feature prayers, but is not entirely prayers.  Each day has an excerpt to read with a story, or a verse, or a teaching- which is followed by a prayer.  Because I was expecting entirely prayers, I was a little disappointed about that but it’s not really a negative.
