“Couples Who Pray: The Most Intimate Act Between A Man and A Woman” by Squire Rushnell and Louise Duart shares how prayer brings couples closer together, especially intimately and physically. This book challenges couples to pray together for at least 5 minutes a day for 40 days. It shows examples of ordinary and celebrity couples who have tried this and have been successful at praying together.
The concept of the book, which is praying together, is a much needed in marriages, but this book seemed to be more of an advertisement to get what you want by praying. It left me a little skeptical of their goal. I believe every couple should pray together, but this book made it seem like if you pray together then your marriage would be fine. Many celebrity couples who pray together are used as examples in this book, but many of their accounts seem unrealistic. I felt like they focused more on the wealth and “physical” intimacy they gained than on how it brought them closer to God and each other. Again, I think the concept is right on, but it fell a little short.
