By M. C. Baker on February 13, 2011
Format: Hardcover
"Blessings and Prayers for Married Couples: A Faith Full Love" by Isabel Anders is a very timely book. Amid all the chaos and confusion found in every day life, this book can be a strength and blessing for any marriage and especially for any Christian marriage. In explaining "How to Use This Book", Anders says,"Choosing to plant and grow and nurture a 'faith full love' is a life-changing choice--a choice that provides an opening for God to work in specific, powerful ways in your marriage, in your family, and in your future"

Rather than a "marriage how-to book", this is a resource which enables couples to pray together and helps to strengthen their marriages to survive and thrive. As Anders has said, "I wanted it to be a way for couples of getting on the same page, literally, together with God." This is exactly what she has provided. Each chapter is based on different phrases of the marriage vows taken and given to each other. Included in each chapter are numerous prayers, poems, statements and meditation from a world of wisdom as well as her own meditative writings.

Not only will this be an excellent gift for any newly wed couple, but it will be a resource which any married couple will discover as an avenue enabling them together to strengthen their "faith full love' with God. In the pages throughout this book there is something for every couple as they build upon their marriage and accept God's grace and blessing upon their life together.

Although this gift book is more appropriate for a Catholic, any Christian will find wisdom and inspiration in this collection of prayers, blessings, and quotes. This would be a good tool for couples to go through together in their daily devotions and prayers. The reflection questions also give a chance for couples to talk about things they may not always think about or talk about together. Nice book.

BLESSINGS AND PRAYERS FOR MARRIED COUPLES: A Faith Full of Love is a blessing in itself and emphasizes marriage as a sacrament that requires attention to prayer life. In this book, Anders advocates the daily act of affirming marriage vows through the process of collaborative worship. The book is an invitation for couples to regard their union as blessed, and Anders advises them to keep their hearts open for an enlightened relationship with each other, as well as with God, so that a clear spiritual perspective about the institution of marriage overarches their partnership.

Based on seven lines of the marriage vows, each chapter in BLESSINGS AND PRAYERS FOR MARRIED COUPLES presents a different part of the vows: "I take you to be my spouse...for better or for worse...to have and to hold...in good times and in bad...for richer and for poorer...in sickness and in health...all the days of our lives..." Anders encourages married couples to pray together at regular times - at mealtimes, bedtimes, and at family events. Her thesis that praying together is the strongest factor in producing long-term, successful marriages is undergirded by the results of a survey that determines only one percent of married couples divorce when they engage in mutual prayer.
Anders uses positive words to project the ideal for married life: love, listen, care, give, share, and support, and at the beginning of each chapter containing inspiring quotations and prayers, she presents a personal reflection about a part of the marriage vow. At the conclusion of each chapter, she includes questions that partners can use to reflect upon and discuss together.

Each chapter in this guide to prayer within the married life reflects the diligence and devotion of a committed Christian writer.

Format: Hardcover
Divorce rates skyrocket with each passing generation. In a disposible society, marriage vows have become "just words" that are repeated in front of clergy or a justice of the peace. Bookstores contain shelves full of self-help books aimed at improving oneself and one's spouse. Even other Christian books that deal with marriage tend to ignore the basics.

In Blessings and Prayers for Married Couples, Isabel Anders takes seven lines from the marriage vow, presents her thoughts and offers quotes, stories, and scripture to be shared by spouses. The book, part devotional and part prayer manual, contains both contemporary and traditional prayers to be recited together.

In a frantic world where both spouses normally work and are entangled in juggling their jobs, family, church activities, and other obligations, Isabel encourages readers to slow down and remember the essence of their love. Each chapter contains questions which will help a couple reflect on their lives, their dreams and goals.

Good for someone with moderate faith walk and life. Light and easy read. Wanted something a little deeper, but good for a "coffee table" read when a visitor glances to pick up and can read short paragraphs.
