WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A COUPLE UNITES IN PRAYER?
Every time you and your spouse pray separately for one another, great things happen in your relationship. Prayer is truly powerful. But when you pray together, that power increases tremendously, and so do the results. Going to God in prayer as a couple benefits your marriage in several ways:
On the day you and your spouse were married, you become one in the eyes of God. From that moment on, however, there is still a process of becoming one in your everyday lives. The living out of this unity doesn’t just happen; it takes time and effort.
The most difficult thing about a marriage is that there are two people in it. If you were just trying to work through things by yourself, you could certainly do a good job of it. But in marriage you have to mesh your dreams, desires, attitudes, assumptions, needs and habits with those of your spouse. The effort to do so can cause strife. When you pray with your spouse, you are drawn into unity with God and, as a result, with one another.
Praying together promotes good communication and emotional intimacy. Just as physical intimacy reaffirms your oneness, so does praying together. When you pray as a couple, you are not only communicating with God, but also with each other. You can learn so much about one another by sharing prayer requests and listening to each other pray.
Praying together invites God to work in your relationship. For a marriage to last and be happy and fulfilling, three parties need to be involved: the husband, the wife and the Lord Almighty.
All marriages have problems because they are made up of two imperfect people. But if you add the presence of a perfect God, then you have unlimited possibilities for drawing closer to the perfection God intended in marriage. Whether that happens is determined by how frequently and how fervently God is invited into your relationship. The more you pray together, the more you will see God do great things.
I know that praying together works because l have seen its power demonstrated in marriages, even in mine. Over the years husbands and wives have struggled with many different issues, and at times felt all hope were lost. Yet in those moments of despair, God intervened; He changed hearts and taught how to make our marriages whole.
A husband and wife certainly can’t change each other, and they can never change as much as they would like. But God can change them both if they invite Him to do so. No matter what struggles a couple have, if they keep praying together, they can see things turn around.
If you or your spouse feels uncomfortable or embarrassed praying out loud in front of the other, don’t be discouraged. Many people have felt that way and overcome it. Ask God to help you. Ask Him to teach you and your spouse how to pray together so you can have the marriage He wants you to have.
Please use this information and experience to salvage your marriage.
The only thing that will keep that marriage is KNOWLEDGE.
Forget about your age and how long you have been in marriage, what you don’t know is beyond you.
Thank You Jesus.
