Marriage Monday - Love Dare 37

"If two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, 
it shall be done for them by My Father"
Matthew 18:19

If someone told you that by changing one thing about your marriage, you could guarantee with near to 100 percent assurance that your life together would significantly improve, you would at least want to know what it was.  And for many Godly couples, that "one thing" is the daily practice of praying together.

There is so much power in prayer.  When we humble ourselves and go to our Father, He listens.  He leans in and listens to our words and our hearts.  He loves when we talk to Him.  As much as there is power in prayer, the Word of God tells us that if two of us agree in prayer, anything we ask in His name, it will be done by the Father.

When you were joined as husband and wife, God gave you a wedding gift - a permanent prayer partner for life.  What a beautiful gift God gave you on your wedding day, your prayer partner.

There is something so powerful, so moving, so wonderful, as my husband and I praying hand in hand together.  Whether it is when one of us is ill and the other prays for healing, we pray for safety for our family, praying for our marriage, or whatever we are lifting to Heaven, praying together creates a powerful bond between us.  It blesses our marriage.  But the unity that grows between a man and woman who regularly pray together forms an intense and powerful connection.  Within the sanctuary of your marriage, praying together can work wonders on every level of your relationship.

A husband and wife need to have a daily time of prayer together.  If you have time in the morning before your day starts, make that prayer time together.  Maybe mornings do not work for the two of you to get together, what about before bed?  Before you climb into your bed, kneel together in prayer.  Are you too tired at night, what about calling each other during your lunch breaks and praying over the phone?  No matter the time, make it happen.  It is important to a marriage.

I love the saying a couple that prays together stays together.

Today's Dare: 
Ask your spouse if you can begin praying together.  Talk about the best time to do this, whether it's in the morning, your lunch hour, or before bedtime.  Use this time to commit your concerns, disagreements, and needs before the Lord.  Don't forget to thank Him for His provision and blessing.  Even if your spouse refuses to do this, resolve to spend this daily time in prayer yourself.

Sweet Blessings~
