Prayer is connection with the Father. It is communion with Jesus. Our personal prayer lives with God are the foundation of everything. When we carve out space designated to pray with our spouse, we invite joy, connection, and hope for what’s to come.
Prayer unlocks things
Have you ever experienced the cathartic release from journaling or sharing your heart with a friend? Prayer functions the same way. As we pray with our spouse, we commune together with God. Like all great conversations, where you start isn’t always where you end. There are experiences, thoughts, dreams, and ideas that God reveals through prayer. This experience in itself uplifts and unlocks your heart to deeper union and freedom with the Lord.
Prayer provides direction
Ever felt stuck in your marriage? Maybe you and your partner are exploring the idea of a big move or life change. Pray with your spouse as a way to come together as one before the Father. This unifies your spirits and keeps you accountable to the vision God provides for your life.
“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:19-20)
Connect deeper as you pray with your spouse
Thriving relationships require vulnerability. As we pray, we open our hearts to not just God, but to our spouse too. We allow ourselves to be fully seen and known, bringing our fears and requests before the Father. It is a gift to know your spouse in this intimate way. Make a point to intentionally pray with your spouse and see how God connects your hearts to once another in fresh ways.
