The power of prayer cannot be overemphasized. It is a major door that must be opened at all times in order to fly high in life and marriage is not an exception.
There is need to constantly pray for and with your spouse to keep the heaven over your marriage continually open.
Marriage cannot be in isolation. There is need for both parties to depend on God’s leading to birth all that God has for them.
Prayer confirms our absolute dependence on God and makes us always stand in awe of His love for us.
Today, we’ll begin the “Praying For Your Spouse series” and the first we will consider is;
1. Pray For Your Spouse’s Relationship With God
Pray for his/her heart. There is need for you to constantly raise an altar of prayer for your spouse’s heart to draw towards God and His work.
A man or woman who loves God wholeheartedly and seeks to please Him always will relieve you of several marital headaches and give you peace of mind.
Pray for your spouse that he/she will not be tired of seeking God. Pray that God will make his or her roots deeper in Him.
As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. (Psalms 42:1 KJV).
Let there be a constant longing in your spouse’s heart to love on God and to make the Holy Spirit his or her companion.
Also, pray for a teachable and a discerning spirit for him or her. Your partner needs to be sensitive to the promptings of the Spirit of God and there is need for him or her to respond to such promptings.
There is also need for you to pray for a refreshing for them. This world is so full of activities that sometimes, one will get overwhelmed. At this point, there is need to be refreshed by God. Lift him or her in prayers to God for Him to replenish your spouse.
Pray against temptations and distractions that will make your spouse forget God and fall into sin. It does not have to get to the irredeemable stage. You can avert such occurrences from taking place at all.
Your spouse’s altar needs to keep burning continually and you need to support them in prayers.
An empty cup cannot fill others so you need to be fired up yourself. You need to keep your own cup full and overflowing in order to be a prayer support to your spouse.
It is also such a wonderful feeling knowing that I have someone always lifting me up in prayers. God honours marriage so He has to answer such prayers.
Keep growing and glowing in God.
God bless you.
