The Marriage Prayer Challenge – Day 1

The Marriage Prayer Challenge – Day 1

I always knew that Leanne prayed for me and I felt she knew I prayed for her. But sitting with each other and listening to the conversation about your marriage between God and your spouse is a pretty incredible experience. Over the next five days we will share a topic each day that you can use to hear your spouse pray for you and you for them.

Here is how the challenge works:

1. Both of you pray aloud giving each other space to express your prayers.

2. Your prayer is between you and the Father. It’s not a lecture or a dig at your spouse. The intimacy of this process is formed by simply praying to the Father and allowing your spouse to listen in.

3. Meditate on the challenge for the day before praying together.

4. If you feel vulnerable, remember to stay vulnerable before the Father and not worry about what your spouse is thinking.

5. If you are second to pray don’t use your prayer as a retort or feel your prayer isn’t as good as your spouses.

6. Prayer through the challenge seeking change in your heart and in your approach.

Here are the daily subjects that vl will be expanded in each day:

1. Love and Support

2. Health and Well-being

3. Spiritual Growth

4. Wisdom and Decision Making

5. Unity and Communication

Remember that prayer is a personal and intimate act, so feel free to tailor these prayers to your specific situation and needs.

Day 1: Love and Support

Pray to have a deepening of love and understanding for them, that you may be a source of encouragement and support to them. Ask for insight in ways you can improve in your expression of support for them. Speak these ways out loud in your prayer.
