Marriage is not easy. Those of us who are married know this first hand. There is a reason there is something called the “honeymoon phase”. But we don’t get married just for the honeymoon phase, right? We want a life pleasing to God with the man He gave as our partner in life.
The Tool Many Forget
I believe that one of the most powerful tools we have in our toolbox for marriage is prayer. It’s a tool that is not often used first but it should be.
Is prayer our first line of defense? Or is prayer farther on down the line after we have tried everything else?
I know I am guilty of, at times, running to seek advice from those I trust most instead of running to my Heavenly Father first. Do you struggle with this too? Or is it just me?
In life, we get thrown curve balls- things we didn’t expect to have live through or deal with in life. Jesus told us to expect it. Even in our marriages.
Define your curveballs? Define your husband’s curveball? We all have them. We all have our own personal struggles, big or little they all matter to God.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
The Silenced Missing Piece
Marriage was not designed to be a two-person journey but too often we silence the third part. We are scratching our heads, trying figure out what is missing when the one thing that is missing is the one person we have put on silence and put in a corner so that we can manage our marriage. Don’t put God in a corner when He should be in the center. A great way to get God back in your marriage is to invite Him back. Put Him in the center and just be with Jesus. Yes, It is that simple.
Today I challenge all of us to boldly and persistently pray for our husbands. Being a man of God in today’s world is hard and leading a family in it is even harder. No matter where your husband is at in life your prayers over him can be a game changer in the game of life.
How do you pray boldly and persistently for your husband?
Praying boldly for our husbands is not about giving God a list of every fault in our husbands that we want Him to fix. We are not filing a complaint with God asking for a recall. It’s about proclaiming the word of God and His promises for our husbands. Lifting our men up in their struggles not tearing them down.
