If two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father.
When you were married, you were given a life-long partner, what you might not have realized was that God was giving you a gift, a prayer partner. Your husband became your prayer warrior, your soulmate in the battlefield. Prayer is one of the most important parts of a marriage that can take it from failing to a complete success. God designed the marriage relationship so that when questions came up, you would be able to answer them together. When you are unable to answer them or are struggling with coming together in agreement on an answer, your natural reflex should be to pray together. In fact, you and your husband should pray together BEFORE you attempt to answer a question. Prayer is powerful and when two people who are united in love pray together, it can be life changing.
Do you have a special time set aside for prayer with your husband? It doesn’t have to be a long prayer session. It can be as simple as waking before your husband leaves for work and taking the time to say a prayer to start your day. You can also pray before bedtime. Whatever you do, whenever you do it, you and your husband will be blessed. Going to God is prayer is important to Him. It means that you are surrendering to Him and seeking His guidance before all else.
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.
At the end of the day, answer these questions:
1. What can you do to help your mate be willing for the two of you to begin praying together?
2. If you agreed to pray together, what was it like?
3. What did you learn from it?
Congratulations! You have completed Day 26! Tomorrow’s dare is Love Encourages.
