    This book is very simple and a very quick read. It’s not complex and I have heard much of what I read before. What I love about this book is it just brings you back to the basics of faith and highlights powerful prayerful women of the Bible and how our own stories can be intertwined with those from the Scriptures. This book is fairly uplifting which my soul needed given the world as it is today in 2020.

    Crush those grapes! Ladies, you need not forsake yourself. Jesus knows you are thirsty, he doesn't want you to suffer, if you stay in faith and pray he will answer your prayers. God is good! As T.D. Jakes notes: there's no pain quite like the pain of isolation, despair, sorrow. That feeling of being unworthy, unappealing, and unloved. My favorite quote: "I praise every wife who chooses to willingly set aside her own career in service to her family. We need more tenacious women in the world." Yet, as I Crush those grapes! Ladies, you need not forsake yourself. Jesus knows you are thirsty, he doesn't want you to suffer, if you stay in faith and pray he will answer your prayers. God is good! As T.D. Jakes notes: there's no pain quite like the pain of isolation, despair, sorrow. That feeling of being unworthy, unappealing, and unloved. My favorite quote: "I praise every wife who chooses to willingly set aside her own career in service to her family. We need more tenacious women in the world." Yet, as I've written to Mr. T.D. Jakes on Twitter- I noted that I gave up career to raise family in support of supporting my spouse in his career endeavors and while he furthered his own agenda and divorced me leaving us bankrupt as a family of four. I found myself bankrupt, homeless, LT unemployed with a dual masters being told I'm over/underqualified and when I mentioned volunteerism for 20 yrs to fill the gap I was then told by President of the United Way in Wilkes Barre Pennsylvania that I came across as entitled as if my volunteering should be rewarded with employment all while in extreme poverty and job seeking for 10 years straight. So, while I try to remain positive I note this cold call email which resulted in an interview that left me in tears because while these books sound great in spirit in reality the world is hard, cruel, and degrading to women. I wish Mr. Jakes would've responded to my concerns about how women are viewed as only 'stay at home moms' as I was in family court seeking child support after my spouse accrued 15k in arrears. OR when I was going to the library to feed my three kids as they offered my spouse preferential treatment for having a paid position. Or when I was seen as non believable or credible simply because I had zero 'earned' income. This is our reality and women should rightfully so be afraid of this new norm. In fact as a former minister of hospitality and the only female usher in my Catholic church here at St. Ignatius of Loyola in Kingston Pa I was confronted and disturbed by three male ushers who ripped a collection basket out of my hands during Sunday mass. The male ushers felt women like myself took over their jobs and they noted to one another," There's more of us then them." When I mentioned this to our local vicar having raised my three kids in private catholic schools that feed into this church I was told that the men need time to come around to this new line of thinking and even after doing this volunteer work as female usher for nearly a full year having volunteered for 2 yrs I was told they didn't know who I was which was a downright lie as I stood every Sunday mass at the back of the church with the male ushers when I wasn't sick with HUS (fatal blood disorder) and severe anemia with sever spinal stenosis. All in all this was an interesting read but sadly those of us without income are struggling and we need serious help STAT!

    I enjoyed how each chapter takes a biblical character and imagines the story from her perspective, including her feelings and thoughts. It's a good reminder that these women were imperfect humans too. Jakes ties each character to a principle of what happens when women pray, and how it can change your world. I don't often mark books, but this e-ARC has quite a few highlights.

    So much truth in this book. To hear the stories of so many important ordinary women from the Bible and to be able to relate to each one of them and to learn that prayer has so much power is inspiring! A must read for all Christian women!

He also relates each of these women and their situations to the world today. I found When Women Pray to be an interesting book. I learned some things about Bible women that I did not previously know and was also reminded of some that I did know. At the same time, Jakes wrote this book this year and shares his thoughts about writing during the Covid-19 pandemic, which I found especially interesting. Jakes is also a black preacher and he shares some things from his perspective as a black man that helped me as a white woman see things a little differently. I found the book to be easy to read and understand. I think it is a book that would speak to young Christians and those who have been Believers for awhile--as well as a plan of salvation for those who don't know it. He brings the Biblical information to the reader in such a way that it is easy to relate to our world today. I would recommend it to anyone. I also felt inspired both encouraged and inspired as a praying woman through When Woman Pray. I received a copy of this book from Faithwords. All opinions within this review are my own. #SponsoredbyFaithwords

    I like TD Jakes and his "Woman Thou Art Loosed" forever changed me and so many other women. In this book he takes ten women from the pages of the Bible and shares how their prayers changed their world and ours. I love the introduction, several pages of background, and this line, "This is a call for women in every community to dream like their daughters and pray like their grandmothers." Having come from a long legacy of faith and praying women, the book drew me in with each turn of the page.

    I went through this book, a chapter a day and it was filled with many spiritual lessons that I never really took into consideration. I felt as though someone saw my relationship with God and used these 10 women to help me overcome the challenges I face in my daily walk with Christ

    Sometimes preachers need to be careful how they explain the word of God, there are many people that do not read the bible and only read or hear the preachers. This is a quick and easy read, but is too basic and lacked to elaborate more on the principal topic that is prayer.

Jakes writes in his book, When Women Pray: 10 Women of the Bible Who Changed the World Through Prayer. ~ What ~ This two-hundred-and-twenty-four-page hardbound focuses on women in the Bible who prayed and trusted God to change their circumstances. After an introduction, there are ten chapters, followed by a conclusion and notes. Using mainly the New International Version of the Bible, verses are sometimes written out and referenced throughout the chapters. In this study book, the author promotes the power of prayer and how it can change lives, especially for females. Focusing on iconic Biblical women, the chapters range from sixteen to twenty-four pages each. Covering Hannah, Mary, Sarah, the woman with the issue of blood, Naomi, the Samaritan and Shunammite women, Esther, Rhoda, and Anna, it rewrites the characters’ stories and explains how their actions can be applied to current day in regard to praying. ~ Why ~ Reading about the many women of the Word who relied on the Lord is refreshing and needed these days, especially for ladies who want to get closer to Him. I enjoyed the way the bishop correlated the past women to how we women can find hope, redemption, victories, and freedom in our lives. ~ Why Not ~ Those who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ may not see the value of a book on prayer. Others may not like that the book is written by a male and sometimes incorporates men in the Bible too when it is touted about women. ~ Wish ~ This book may not be in-depth for those who are committed to their prayer life praying for others and not only themselves. I wish it did not include the often personal input by the writer. ~ Want ~ If you are looking for a book on Biblical women who prayed and got results, this may be helpful, but note it was written by a man. Thanks to Hatchett Books for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.

    In When Women Pray, T.D. Jakes explored the power of women in the Bible who prayed and had incredible faith. He begins the book by sharing how Mother Teresa was a praying woman and how she changed the world and tried to make a positive difference. Next, he looked at the foundation of the Bible and the men who listened to God and how they were able to communicate and pray to God. He discussed Abraham, Moses, David, and Paul and what we can learn from them on prayer. Jakes explained his reasoning In When Women Pray, T.D.

Next, he looked at the foundation of the Bible and the men who listened to God and how they were able to communicate and pray to God. He discussed Abraham, Moses, David, and Paul and what we can learn from them on prayer. Jakes explained his reasoning on looking at the some of the men in the introduction. He shared how the men in history had to focus on building homesteads and cities and they led the armies to fight the wars. Women were able to pray more and make their homes like a holy sanctuary. Jakes opened up about how prayer has changed generations and they need to continue in their march towards equality and to stand against the injustice. In the book, he looked at ten women: Hannah, Mary, Sarah, the woman with the issue of the blood, Samaritan woman, Ester, Rhona, Shunammite woman, and Anna. One of my favorite chapters was the one that discussed the woman with the issue of the blood and how she displayed incredible courage. She had a disease and it was considered a violation to touch anyone. When she was out in public, she was supposed to yell unclean. She had the bleeding condition for twelve years and she received help from countless doctors. They were unable to fix her issue. He just wanted to touch his clothes and be healed. Eventually, she decided to touch Jesus cloak when he was moving among the crowd. He revealed the scriptural background of the tassel and what this meant. This tassel showed the authority of Christ and the promises of God. Jakes shared how we all experience pain and we all have issues and how our only hope is to pray. He explained how she knew her value and wasn’t afraid to reach out to Christ and to receive healing. The world judged her for her condition but she chose to ignore them and to still move ahead. Jakes shared with readers on who they are in Christ and how valuable we are to Him. He encouraged readers to keep praying and to keep believing for the victory. I would recommend this life changing book to anyone who is seeking a book on prayer. It is written to help woman to pray for their families and friends. But men can also learn how to pray but looking at the lives of woman in the Bible who have made a difference and helped changed the scope of generations. I immensely loved the topic of the book and how it explored the woman in the Bible and how they prayed to God and believed in His promises. I don’t believe many authors have written a book just on women in the Bible who prayed. I truly believe this was the first in that regard. I especially liked how he explained in details of the lessons we can learn from Sarah, Mary, Esther, and much more and how they chose to pray and believe in God and His Word. Jakes also discussed COVID-19 and the darkness and changes it has caused the world and how it changed the church and how the darkness is never as strong as the light. There are many things we can learn from the woman in the Bible and how they were able to be empowered to accomplish the will of Christ. "I received this book free from the publisher, Faithwords for my honest review.”

Jakes wrote this book about ten women in the Bible to show that their prayers positively affected their own lives as well as the world around them. If you are a lady Prayer Warrior or hope to become one, this book will fill you with insight and encouragement. Especially significant are the choices of ladies included in the book. Not only the well known prominent ladies, but several ladies whose proper names were never recorded in the Bible such as the Woman With the Issue of Blood, the Samaritan Woman, and the Shunammite Woman are included. This in particular makes the book appealing to ladies at every spectrum from well known church leaders to the brand new Christian just learning about how to pray. Some people tend to discount the value of prayer probably because of it not being a tangible and seen thing. It’s value can’t be measured in the physical seen realm because it is in the invisible spiritual realm at the input stage. This book allows the reader to see the tangible output results of prayer as recorded in the Bible. The intangible prayer offerings of the ten ladies went to Almighty God who turned them into tangible evidence of His work on earth. This is a most valuable lesson in understanding God’s love and care for the people He created. I consider myself fortunate to have won this book in a blog contest. I have been under no obligation to give a review. I chose to write a review to help other prayer warriors like myself be encouraged and have another resource to share with prayer ministry groups. The book is well written on a down to earth level. Those looking for an academic type study on prayer may not find this book suitable to their needs. I am thankful to have this book to share with my praying friends.

    "If you're in a season of suffering right now, you need to remember there are more chapters in your life as well. You've still got more story in your story!

Bishop tells the stories of 10 important women in the Bible and how prayer manifested in their lives and the change it brought about. In times of uncertainty, if you are a praying woman, I suggest reading this book. A quick yet powerful read, it serves as a reminder that trouble doesn't last always and that good can sometimes be found even in the most dire situations. Things won't be perfect or magically fixed just because we pray, but 'when women pray, they find hope and joy in unexpected places." A special thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book.

Or maybe because the stories were about women or because it's the new year energy that's in the atmosphere. What I know is that this book has done something in me. It has invoked a deep desire to pray. Not religiously or out of duty or to tick prayer off from my daily to do list. But out of a desire to always commune with my Creator and the confidence that He desires to hear from me all the time. Its changed not only when I pray but also how I pray.

Read it with your sister friends and together watch your lives transform as you whisper your deepest desires to Him who knows it all.

My major down experience in reading, was when the writer made reference to a few of the 10 women who were the main subjects of their chapter, (Sarah and Naomi for instance) and implied that although we didn’t read them pray out in scripture, their silent whispers, longings and desires were good enough to inspire a reader to pray. I think anyone picking this book to read would be looking for more than silent whispers, desires and longings to inspire and motivate them to pray. A quick and easy read, but I was expecting much more from a title that deep.

    Initial thoughts: It was really heartening to find that this book is primarily focussed on the women of the Bible, featuring ten of them and how their prayers made a difference in their lives and that of others. Definitely walked away encouraged to prioritise prayer more in my life. Although, since I listened to the audiobook, I didn't get to read the Bible verses mentioned with my own eyes, so I couldn't verify Jakes's claims on the spot.

    The lives of ten women of the Bible are reimagined in a persuasive encouragement for all women of faith to utilize the power of prayer. Hannah - God brings about new life; Mary - God brings redemption and reconciliation; Sarah - women find hope and joy in unexpected places; the woman with the issue of blood - women gain victory over the "issues" of life; Naomi - curses are turned into blessings; the Samaritan woman - women are quenched of their thirst; Esther - women gain victory over injustice; The lives of ten women of the Bible are reimagined in a persuasive encouragement for all women of faith to utilize the power of prayer.

    T.D. Jakes has a unique gift of storytelling and making the scriptures I’ve read countless times come to life. In this book, he revisits many women of the Bible and the role they played in the culture of their time while focusing on how they prayed. Using each woman’s personal story as a backdrop to encourage women everywhere to pray honest prayers, Jakes puts forward an amazing work of art that will stir and provoke the reader to prayer.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to the women in my life as a reminder of how important it is for us to go deeper in our prayer lives.

    Outstanding read!!! This book is an inspiration for woman every where. The lives of these biblical women are truly stories that each woman can relate to. You see trials and distress but thru it all their prayers brought them thru. Pastor Jakes truly gives you these stories so that you can see them from a different perspective and truly give God glory for his unconditional love for all. God never fails us but he does want us to keep that connection with him for a long lasting, strong relationship. Outstanding read!!! This book is an inspiration for woman every where.

    This was the first book I've listened to by Jakes and I was pleasantly surprised. Although I'm not of his faith, I enjoyed his insights to these ten women of the bible. I loved how Jakes was so respectful of his wife and his daughters. My only critique would be that I felt he got a little too much on the social issues and focused on only one particular race in a several parts of this book. I felt that love should have been extended to all races of people that live in poverty, rather than just foc This was the first book I've listened to by Jakes and I was pleasantly surprised.

    This was a super quick read book. I choose to take my time and turn in into a more intentional read but easily something that could be blown through in a day. I think my favorite aspect of this book is that it reminds us the characters in the Bible are real humans with real feelings. I can’t tell you how many times I simply read a Bible story but don’t focus on anything deeper than the words I’m reading. It sometimes just happens. But the author does the work and really makes you pause and think This was a super quick read book.

    I am inexplicably drawn to books about prayer and women. This fun colored book caught my eye and captured my attention immediately. Even though I do not agree with Bishop TD Jakes on everything I still very much value his wisdom, opinions, and perspectives. He masterfully wove together stories, exact verses, main ideas, themes, and take-aways. Each chapter was cohesive in stating the power of prayer while highlighting different strengths magnified thru prayer.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book! I like how I was able to identify with every story. My personal favorite was the story of the Shunamite woman. It's a pretty easy read, and there were moments where I was like, "why is Bishop Jakes calling me out right now?" Lol. I encourage women who are struggling with their relationship within themselves or with God to read this book. After reading, I feel more confident re-establish my connection with God, and fearless to walk in whatever purpose that He create I thoroughly enjoyed the book!

    I’d recommend this book to every single woman that desires to improve their prayer life. 🙏🏽 This was such a great read! Definitely highlight worthy! Bishop T.D. Jakes does an excellent job at putting a contemporary spin on the stories of these 10 phenomenal women. And after reading When Women Pray, I feel so inspired and empowered to prayer more fervently. I loved reading their stories and reading what Bishop had to say in relation to everything. I’ll probably read this one again before the year I’d recommend this book to every single woman that desires to improve their prayer life. 🙏🏽 This was such a great read! Definitely highlight worthy!
