FIRST-TIME author Inishka Lloyd has vowed to pray with millions of wives around the world for their husbands to gain wisdom, as she prepares for the national book release of “A Wife’s Prayer Journal: Praying for Your Husband through the Book of Proverbs.”
Lloyd says that she can relate to women who have thought about quitting.
Having taken care of her family for nearly two decades, Lloyd can make a list of reasons for a divorce.
“I am governed by a higher power. One of the reasons marriages are failing is because couples have moved away from God, the inventor of the institution,” she said.
Released in the United States in March, Lloyd’s book is currently available at Logos Bookstore and online at amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
Inspired by the Book of Proverbs, which offers wisdom on various topics, including marriage, Lloyd says a husband needs wisdom to lead his home and his family, as he allows God to lead him.
Each chapter of the book ends with a section for journal writing, allowing readers to express themselves and gain a deeper commitment to a new prayer life.
With failed marriages becoming more prominent in Bahamian society, Lloyd says marriages are on the attack by those who don’t respect the sanctity of the institution.
She believes the devil is lurking for husbands who lack
wisdom and, more importantly, a prayerful wife. Therefore, prayer is needed to maintain a healthy marriage and family.
“I didn’t write this book to
make money, but to get that message out there that wives have the privilege and responsibility to cover our husbands in prayer,” said Lloyd.
