When a Woman Prays is a uniquely conceptualized book that motivates readers to fit praying into their daily lives, as the author makes prayer seem simple and easy to do. The book is dedicated to all women who feel they need a closer, more personal relationship with God. In the Foreword, Miller says:

"Miracles can happen when a woman prays …miracles in the lives of the people she prays for, miracles in the lives of the people she loves, and miracles in her own life. "My purpose in writing this book is to help you feel the emptiness in your life …in your soul. It is to help you develop and enjoy the most intimate and fulfilling relationship you will ever have – a relationship with God."
In a short introduction, the writer assures readers that this book will help both those who have never prayed before, and those who wonder if they are praying the “right” way. Starting with "The Search for God," the book reaches – in chapter 6 - a format of formal and informal prayers to help readers get started. It is easy to follow the Miller's suggestions, and readers can practice instantly their first prayer to God:
"Writing a letter to God or writing your innermost thoughts and prayers in a journal is an excellent way to pray in silence, clarify your thoughts and desires, and communicate them with God."
This excellent book deals with a variety if prayers and situations, such as praying for others, for purpose, and praying for your enemies:
"Pray for your enemies. Boy, this one can be difficult. This is the hardest prayer of all to utter and still harder to say sincerely. Yet God has called us to do just this. We are all called to forgive the people who hurt us."
The chapters end up in "The Journey," where the writer states that “the intimate relationship with God is a journey, not a destination.” Miller invites the readers to pray:
"Today the journey begins. Open your heart to Jesus. Miracles can happen when a woman prays … Miracles can happen when you pray.

"If you are having trouble getting started, let me pray with you. Email me at : tina@tinamiller.com . I will personally pray with you."
Each chapter ends up with questions meant to motivate readers to sort out their own needs and problems, thus helping them understand how to plan their life and their family’s life in order to enrich and enhance it with God:
"Do you remember the first prayer you ever learned?

"How are you teaching your children to know God?

"What prayers do your children know?"
At the end of the book there is a Resources sectionwhere the readers can find prayers for every situation. There is also a list of people who want to pray with you, and a list of more books on prayers for further reading.
