Praying for My Marriage
I recently watched a movie called War Room about praying for your spouse even when they don’t deserve your prayers.
The movie was about a couple struggling with their finances which lead the husband to some poor character choices. This couple had a child together and through a mentor of the wife’s, the mom was determined to not put the burden of her marriage on the child through a divorce.
She still loved her husband even though he was not being the man God had made him to be. So what she did was choose to pray for him daily that he would be the man, the husband, and the father that God had made him to be.
The film was a low production movie, but the meaning was clear and beautiful.
We need a country that will pray for our spouses daily.
We need marriages that will be strengthened by these prayers.
Marriage can feel like a roller coaster at times and that is a normal marriage.
All good marriages have good and bad times.
Instead of listening to those mean voices or jumping to conclusions, maybe as wives we can stop and pray for our husbands.
I will have to admit when I am mad at my husband, my first thought is not to pray for him to become the man God created him to become. I am usually in full on fight mode, but where does that leave our marriages? Words do hurt and I for one have a hard time forgetting those words.
So, I am suggesting that all wives turn this divorce epidemic around and we save our families through prayer.
I say when we are the maddest, we pray harder.
I know this challenge may become very difficult, but we have to do something as women to save our marriages.
They are under attack more now than ever.
Who else is up to the challenge?
