Marriage can be full of ups, downs, twists, and turns. But it is a team effort (husband, wife, and Jesus!) and nothing can match how rewarding a marriage relationship is.
Praying with and for your spouse can make a powerful difference. Personally, I would describe it as a gamechanger for my husband and me.

Now I would like to share with you some prayers that you can pray for your spouse based on Ephesians chapter 1. But before you scroll down to read them, here is a prayer for each one of you: Lord, I pray for the people who read these prayers and lift their spouses up in prayer. Touch their marriages, Lord. Reveal to them a way where they previously thought a way did not exist. Renew their hope in You and Your ability to strengthen their relationship. Give them a fresh perspective on how to celebrate You, celebrate each other, and celebrate the gift of marriage. In Your name, Amen.

You can print them out to use as a bookmark or tape them to your mirror, etc. (More prayers based on Ephesians will be coming, so be looking for those.) Continue reading →

Sometimes I consider taking a break from praying about this specific situation because I convince myself God is sick of hearing about it.
Sometimes I believe His perceived silence means that other parts of the plan are getting set in motion.
Sometimes I believe He is developing a characteristic in me that I need to be equipped with to better handle the answer to the prayer once it comes.
And sometimes I conclude my prayer with, “Lord, I trust You, but…,” along with a variety of the following options: but I don’t see You working, but I don’t get why it’s taking so long, but maybe I heard You wrong, but maybe my prayer is on the bottom of Your list.
This morning was one of those times. Continue reading →
