Hope from the Truths of God's Word

New Book News, Barn Dances and Prayer

Hi friend! I hope this finds you doing oh so well. I’m in Branson, Missouri this weekend with fun plans to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Our plans include a Saint Patrick’s Day Barn Dance at the Sycamore Creek Family Ranch. Do you like to dance with your spouse? We have been dancing together over 20 years now.

Everything about Sycamore Creek Family Ranch is WOW! It is a fantastic venue for weddings. The owners have been our friends for many years. Their passion for God and the enrichment of families is inspiring. I’m SO grateful that they choose to give a copy of Prayers for New Brides to every bride that gets married at the ranch. What a blessing to me and those sweet brides.

I’ve been feverishly working on the new book, Hope for Your Marriage: 31 War Room Prayers. I am also working part time in my friend’s salon as a front desk hostess which keeps me from being glued to a chair every day. I hope the time away from the computer makes me an even better writer.

You can help me write this book!

I’m over halfway finished with the first draft and I want to make sure I am writing about the most important things you face in marriage. Click here to give me anonymous feedback on prayer topics you would like to have help with.

Would you mind praying with me about the upcoming book? Here are a few details that I need God’s wisdom on:

  1. Book cover design
  2. Book content
  3. Self-publishing decisions, costs and technicalities
  4. Time management and inspiration

Thank you for joining me on this journey of encouraging wives and book writing. Your friendship and willingness to support me through prayer is a priceless gift!

Here’s my prayer for you.

Almighty God, I am so thankful for Your unending love for the one reading this. I ask that You move heaven and earth to increase their faith. I ask You to be the wind in their sails as they choose a life of faith-filled intercession. I ask You for the wisdom and insight needed to distinguish Your voice and the courage to act on it. In Jesus, I pray. Amen

Here are a few excerpts of prayers from the new book:

God, Your word says that nothing is impossible for You. I know You are pleased when I believe in You. Restoring our marriage feels impossible to me, but I choose to believe it is certainly within Your power.


Help me not to stir up anger in my spouse with arguments. Show me how to communicate in a way that soothes and opens the door for healthy responses.

God, some days the atmosphere of my heart and our home feels chaotic, even warlike. Our words often sound like missiles launched at each other. I long for Your promise of perfect peace to be a reality in our marriage.


I’m posting 3 prayers a day on the Prayerfully Speaking Facebook page. I hope you are seeing them and that our God is using them to spark great conversations between the two of you.

About Jennifer O. White

I'm a simple wife who has discovered God's amazing gift of prayer. Here at Prayerfully Speaking I share my journey of unwrapping this gift. God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you've ever imaged.
