Doug writes this book with such expression of who he really is now. 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 (MSG) “Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons!…” This book is not just for those who have had trials but for anyone that just needs to be encouraged. Doug pours his soul on paper. He shares his life story of the good, the bad, and the ugly. He shares of his setbacks, his victories, and his determination in the Lord to press on an be all that God created him to be. The story he shares brings a range of emotions as you read it. He is bold in sharing his struggles and after reading this, I challenge anyone to step out and change your life for the better. To realize you are not alone, and that you can see things change. I personally know this author and highly suggest everyone read this book and share it with others. Thank you Doug, and Nation of Women Publishing (www.nationofwomenpublishing.com) for allowing me to review this book.
Husbands – Prayers That Availeth Much
Father, in the name of Jesus, I take Your Word and confess this day that I (we) hearken to Your wisdom. We dwell securely in confident trust, and we are without fear or dread of evil. We make our ears attentive to skillful and godly wisdom, inclining and directing our hearts and minds to understanding. We apply all of our power to the quest of wisdom and understanding.
We let not mercy, kindness, and truth forsake us. I bind them about our necks and write them on the tablet of our hearts. We prize the wisdom of God highly and exalt her. She will exalt and promote us, bringing us honor because we embrace her. For You, Lord, are our confidence, firm and strong, and You keep our feet from being caught in a trap or hidden danger.
Where we go, the Word of God shall lead us. When we sleep it shall keep us. When we awaken, it shall talk to us. Therefore, we will speak excellent and princely things, and the opening of our lips shall be for right things. All the words of our mouths are righteous – upright and in right standing with God – and there is nothing contrary or crooked in them.
My husband lives considerately with me, his wife, with an intelligent recognition of our marriage relationship. He honors me, his wife, as physically the weaker. However, he realizes that we are joint-heirs to the throne with Jesus spiritually. He does this in order that our prayers are not hindered or cut off.
We confess that we are of one and the same mind, united in spirit, compassionate, and courteous, tenderhearted, and humble minded. We believe for our welfare, happiness and protection because we love and respect each other.
Father, thank You that we are a couple of good report, that we are successful in everything we set our hands to. We are uncompromisingly righteous. We capture human lives for You as fishers of men. As we do this, we are confident that You are the Lord God Who teaches us to profit and leads us in the way we should go. We are abundantly supplied with every need met, in the name of Jesus. We have obtained the favor of the Lord, and the will of God is done in our lives and in our children’s lives. Amen

Praying Wife – August Chapter 3
We are praying over our husband’s work (assignment) this month. One thing Stormie points out in her book is that men who do not have praying parents tend to flounder and never know their purpose. Let’s join together in prayer, declaring God’s blessings and favor over our husband’s a work and all they do. If you want to join this great team of praying wives message me.
Praying Parents – August Chapter 3
This month’s chapter is on wisdom, discernment and Revelation. No matter what age your children are, please don’t stop praying for them. Luke 2:40 “And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.” I always add “and they find favor and grace with God and man.” I’m seeing wisdom become greater in our boys lives. We have been praying over them 21 years (plus in my womb). It works. Don’t cast away your confidence. God’s Word will not fail. Let’s press in as much as we can this next season, end of the year, and see what God wants to come to pass. Message me if you would like to be a part of this team of prayers.
Our son Luke was accepted into Phi Theta Kappa honor society for life. Congratulations son. Well done.
If you like fiction, end-times, and a good story, then One Thousand and Beyond is a read for you. Tom Nesbary captures your attention as you follow this unbelievable story. The fact is, after you get through reading you can believe this is possible. Tom opens our minds up to image a timeline that could happen and one day will. He has us envisioning the whole story as if we were living it. Thank you Nation of Women Publishing for allowing me to review this. https://www.nationofwomenpublishing.com/
