In this entertaining, highly readable book, couples learn that a fabulous marriage can be the outcome of learning to pray together, a minimum of five minutes a day, causing a 20 to 30% increase in romance, conversation and happiness.
Best-selling author SQuire Rushnell and his wife, entertainer and talk show host, Louise DuArt take readers step by step through The 40 Day Prayer Challenge(TM) in which couples commit to praying together five minutes a day for forty days. Backed by compelling research from Baylor University and Gallup Poll, the true-life experiences of 24 test couples reveal that daily prayer is a "life changing experience" in which most couples report positive outcomes in less than two weeks.
Celebrity couples share extraordinary experiences on how the most intimate act between a man and a woman has improved their marriages. The couples include Denzel and Pauletta Washington, Kathie Lee and Frank Gifford, Donna Summer and Bruce Sudano, Scott and Tracie Hamilton, Christina Ferrara and Tony Thomopolous, and Gavin and Patty MacLeod.
"Couples Who Pray" includes an easy questionnaire prepared by Baylor University to help couples to chart their own progress during The 40 Day Prayer Challenge(TM). According to never-before-published research the "quantity and quality of lovemaking" gets better by 20% when couples pray more. There's also a significant reduction in disagreements evidenced by a 21% elevation among respondents who say that they are trying to make their marriages better. Astonishingly, the fear of divorce plummets to zero when couples pray "a lot."
