2. Pray Against Temptation
A family friend of ours travels often for his work. He once told my husband and me, that before every trip he and his wife pray together. They pray for safe travels, but also against temptation in their marriage while they are apart.
What better way to guard your marriage against temptation is there than to pray about it with your spouse?
It seems that at every turn there is something just waiting to tempt us to sin against our spouses. Praying against these temptations is one big way to protect yourselves and your marriage from sin.
3. Pray For Your Family
Praying for your family is one of the most important things you need to be praying about with your spouse.
If you have children, it’s a good idea to begin praying for them as soon as they are born, or even before they are born! Praying for their walk with God, and the choices that they face is essential. By praying together you can help each other focus on specific areas where each of your children may need prayer.
You may not have kids, but that doesn’t mean you should skip this topic. Praying for your family is by no means limited to praying for children.
It’s equally important to pray for any of your family members, and the needs they may have. Loved ones who are struggling with their faith or have health concerns need your prayers!
4. Pray About Your Finances
Money, more specifically, the way money is spent, is a common issue in many marriages.
For some, praying about finances might be praying that your spending is in order. Others might be praying for stability or even a better job. No matter what your financial concerns are, praying about them with your spouse is a good idea.
Bringing financial issues before God, together, can help you to better understand the concerns your partner might have about your finances.
5. Pray for Health
It’s good to pray for your health with your spouse, but not just physical health, your mental health as well.
If you or your spouse has health problems, or is facing a trial with their physical well-being, this is something you will want to bring before God. Praying for healing and good health is important.
However, don’t forget that praying for both of you to be healthy mentally is equally important.
It’s easy to feel worn out or mentally weighed down by things in our lives. Praying about these issues can help to ease some of the stress you or your spouse might be feeling, and by praying together, you are showing your partner your support and care for them.
Prayer is such an important, yet often neglected part of a marriage.
There are so many things in life that you need to pray about with your spouse. This list is just the start.
Be sure to spend time praying together daily to strengthen your relationship with God, and your spouse!
