My husband and I got fed up. We just lost it.
We were talking about the quality of marriage in our culture and the level of brokenness and mediocrity we see. Our answer? Prayer. We’ve started praying daily for the quality of specific marriages and we don’t plan on stopping … ever.
And just so you know, we put our marriage on the list too. We want our marriage relationship to continue to grow and be a light on a hill, so to speak. (Christians should have the best marriages ever!)
What does your marriage look like? The marriages of your friends? Why not commit to pray with your sweetie? (if he’s not a believer, grab a prayer partner)
Don’t stop. Make it a life long habit. What will your marriage look like? The marriages of those you pray for? Think of the ripple effect!
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea … he said to himself, ‘… because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice …’” … will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night?” Luke 18:1-7 NIV
