Couples Who Pray by SQuire Rushnell and Louise DuArt

Couples who pray. A fine introduction to an intimate act of prayer in a couples relationship. As the authors lay out their inspirational ideals through the power of prayer, they show it as an intimate act of spirituality. Therefore, the couple shows their own intimacy between each other in the openness of their sharing of such spirituality.

As with the physical, the couple brings prayer as a nurturing towards a full spiritual awareness. Prayer will lay reason to the bond between this couple. The authors bring to the forefront, an awareness of ones intimate needs. These needs being shown will allow for the mutual understanding of each other.

The use of an included 40 day prayer challenge sets the stage for a habit of contributed prayer. Through the use of this challenge, a transformation of ones own self can only grow stronger. With just five minutes a day, for forty days, joint prayer is suggested as a means to encourage the bond between couples.

It is not for me to say whether this challenge is good for the couple, yet I still believe that prayer is an intimate act better left to ones self. There is however an understanding how the spiritual sensibility in prayer can enlighten any relationship.

Prayer and desire bring about an inspirational bonding that can only be increased with prayer. Couples who pray seems to parlay the sense that prayer as a couple will endeavor to bring about an ever-nurturing strength in this relationship. It can be brought to light that this act can be used to nurture other relationships, such as that of the parent to the child, as well.

I would definitely recommend this book as a guideline, and not as a standard. As the act of prayer has to be acted on as ones own spirituality can direct. The use of celebrity couples only gave a physical feel for the relationship, and had no effect on my review of such.
