9 Because of this, since the day we heard about you, we haven’t stopped praying for you and asking for you to be filled with the knowledge of God’s will, with all wisdom and spiritual understanding. 10 We’re praying this so that you can live lives that are worthy of the Lord and pleasing to him in every way: by producing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God; 11 by being strengthened through his glorious might so that you endure everything and have patience—Colossians 1:9-11 (NLT)
I have a question. Do you regularly pray for your spouse? If not, why not?
Think of it. Your spouse, next to God, should be the most important person in your life—more than children, parents, or anyone else. You are connected to that man or woman and to pray for them is the ultimate expression of your love for them.
You should be praying for their salvation—if they do not know the Lord. And if you do not know the Lord, give yourself over to Him totally—you will never regret it! Afterwards, you should be praying for their growth in God, their health and progression in life.
To pray for your spouse is to say: you and your relationship with God mean more to me than just my needs and what you can do for me.
If praying for your spouse is not a regular thing for you, there is no time like the present to start. The verse above is a good place to start. Try praying those things for your spouse this week and see the Word of God work in their life and ultimately in your marriage.
Have a wonderful Marriage Monday!
