Prayers for a Woman's Soul
Women have a prayer list a mile long: Husbands. Children. Friends. Church leaders. Neighborhood situations. The military. World events. The sick and the shut-in and the chronically struggling. With so much on their minds, it’s no wonder that women sometimes forget to pray for themselves, neglecting their own needs and spiritual growth.
For every woman who specializes in “front-burner prayer,” praying for whatever is boiling over at the moment (and there’s always something boiling over!) comes Prayers for a Woman’s Soul. This inspiring book will teach wives, mothers, friends, sisters, and daughters how to cover themselves with prayer on a regular basis. Each devotion includes powerful spiritual insight, personalized Scripture, and a prayer to help begin the conversation with God. This soul-pampering journey will rejuvenate, refresh, and revive a woman’s soul!
“Never have I identified with a book [or] a devotional as quickly and as readily as I did this one.”
“…a fantastic, Biblically sound book that all women should have in their personal collection.”
“I enjoyed the author’s personal stories and felt uplifted by the author’s writings.”
“Julie Gillies has a written a book every woman needs! My heart was fed with encouragement from start to finish. Prayers for a Woman’s Soul is the perfect blend of personal stories, powerful prayers, and topic-specific Scriptures to reflect on, helping us draw strength from the Father so we can live from the fullness of all He has for us as women, wives, moms, and friends. I’m going to use it as my personal devotion book this year and get a copy for several friends!”
—Renee Swope, bestselling author of A Confident Heart, Proverbs 31 Ministries radio co-host and speaker
“For years I have diligently prayed for my husband and my children. Somehow, I just missed praying prayers for me! Prayers for a Woman’s Soul is my answer to prayer—daily direction in praying for myself so I can become the woman God has created me to be!”
—Lynn Cowell, Proverbs 31 speaker and author of His Revolutionary Love and Devotions for a Revolutionary Year
“As a busy wife, mother, volunteer, and employee, I know in my head the importance of praying for myself. But most days, I’m at the bottom of my prayer list, unless of course there’s a problem. But Julie Gillies has inspired me to prioritize praying for myself every day, and in Prayers for a Woman’s Soul she’s made it so easy to do! It’s biblical, it’s inspiring, and it’s practical! It’s an invitation to the Source of all peace and joy. I highly recommend this book for any woman needing some inner refreshment.”
—Glynnis Whitwer, Proverbs 31 Ministries, Editor of P31 Woman and author of I Used to Be So Organized
“Prayers for a Woman’s Soul is like a soothing spa for the harried woman’s heart. Julie Gillies bares her own heart in this easy-to-read but meaningful book. Filled with practical Scripture and pointed prayers, each chapter provides refreshment, wisdom, and encouragement for women to reconnect with the Life-Giver so that we’re better equipped to give life to others.”
—Jody Hedlund, bestselling author of The Preacher’s Bride
"With the honesty of a dear friend, Julie Gillies lovingly shares heart stories, painstakingly revealing every woman’s deepest need: learning to pray for herself. With 52 topics covering issues from peace to perseverance, Julie invites us to live openly before God, admitting our shortcomings and trusting Him to transform our lives through an intimate prayer relationship."
—Kelly Hancock, founder of FaithfulProvisions.com and author of Saving Savvy: Smart and Easy Ways to Cut Your Spending in Half and Raise Your Standard of Living…and Giving!
“Prayers for a Woman’s Soul is an inspiring, rejuvenating devotional that teaches women not only how to pray for themselves, but how to allow the power of God to speak to their hearts through prayer. Each week, whether using this guide in a group or individually, Julie takes us through prayer topics such as praying for our minds, countenance, and even the distractions that we women face. This book brought clarity to areas in my life that I needed to work on and pray through. You’ll find this journey of prayer refreshing to the soul.”
—Sandy Coughlin, author of The Reluctant Entertainer
“This book is such a reminder that God loves me. Just as He desires for me to lift others in prayer, He desires for me to communicate to Him about myself, too. So often, we spend so much time praying for others that we neglect ourselves. But really, if we didn't neglect ourselves, we would have such a healthier impact on those around us. God has specific things He wants to say to us that are about us. This book helps open the door to those conversations.”
