Uplift with persistent prayer; encourage your spouse by sharing problems, fears, and concerns with God,
Your spouse will feel secure when prayer becomes the first line of defense in your marriage.
You have a unique and special spot as the person who is the closest to your spouse – use the knowledge you have of her – of him – to pray, interceded, ask, seek and knock on behalf of your spouse. God answers prayer. But we need to ask.
And persistent prayer will provide release from all those concerns you carry. Don’t worry – pray instead!
Uplift with Persistent Prayer
Spend time in solitude. Use Scripture to pray over your spouse. Remember to give thanks for your spouse and all you are together because God is authoring your life as husband and wife.
You two are stronger – together. Pray together.
Pray without ceasing.
1Thessalonians 5:17 NKV
Put your phone down – and pray instead!
Choose to pray as your first defense to draw closer to each other. Yes, put your phones down, and hold hands to pray together!
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
God hears our prayers and He will provide because he cares for us. Sometimes it’s hard to feel like praying. The shortest prayer can be, “Father, help!“. You’re asking for help from the One who created all things and has power over all things.
