“I’ll never forget walking from the bedroom toward the bathroom that day many years ago, when I first sensed God prompting me to begin praying—for myself. I got the distinct impression that if I did not begin seriously and regularly praying for myself, I wasn’t going to make it.
So, I started. Not because I was a holy woman, but because I was a desperate woman.
Desperate for my miserable marriage to change. Desperate for the wounds in my soul to stop throbbing. Desperate to feel loved. Desperate to be a good mom with a good attitude. Desperate to actually feel joyful.
Can you relate?
I needed to know how much God loved me. I needed to experience His healing, His joy, and be equipped with His strength and peace while I walked through life’s hard places. And all of that began happening when I made the commitment to regularly pray for myself.
So you see, I didn’t write Prayers for a Woman’s Soul because I’m an impressive theologian with several letters after my name. I wrote it because I was a desperate woman with real problems, real issues holding me back, and real desire to experience more of the freedom and healing I kept reading about in the Bible.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, and could use a soul-changing boost, or even if you’re life is so crazy-busy you simply never thought to take time to pray for yourself, I’d like to invite you to indulge in Prayers for a Woman’s Soul.
Because praying for myself not only helped me, it transformed me. And I’d love to accompany you through this 52-week devotional.”—Julie Gillies
