Prayer is so super important! It literally is the main way of communication between us and The Lord.
In this season of my life, prayer has been the driving force of everything that I do. More specifically, and ironically, it’s brought a deeper level of intimacy between myself and God but also between me and my husband.
It’s been my new aim for the past two months to go straight home after work (when possible) and to spend time in worship and prayer. My husband usually gets home about an hour or so after me, so it gives me time to pray by myself and really just spend time seeking the face of The Lord.
*Disclaimer: this takes SOOO much discipline! Some days I come home and I want to do nothing more but change my clothes, put on the TV, and simultaneously browse through Facebook and Instagram. To be honest, majority of the time that urge wins, but I’m learning each day how to give myself to the desires of my spirit and not those of my flesh*
While in prayer last week, the Lord told me that He wants Terrence (my husband) and I to spend time in prayer together every night this week. That means that we have to clear our schedule of anything that will prevent us from getting home to pray.
Today is day three that we’ve been praying together, and I’m SOOOO glad that we were obedient. Every night after prayer, I feel a closer bond between Terrence and I. I want to say that it’s some super deep spiritual thing, but, I honestly feel like it’s because of the simple fact that we’re spending intimate time together with God.
Like I said, it’s only day three, but it’s going to be my personal goal to continue this. For those who are married, join me on this challenge! Let’s strive to spend at least 3 days out of the week in prayer with our husbands. I’m believing that it’s going to really strengthen our marriages!!
This is gonna be fun =)
Love you guys!!
