Can I tell you a little secret?
One that not even my husband knows?
Here it goes: For a year, I prayed for my husband every night.
He thought I was just scratching his back as he fell asleep, but in truth, I was praying, too. Our first year of marriage was covered in prayer.
Well, things got busy. I started working full time, sometimes longer hours than he was working. I was tired and often overwhelmed, and my prayers for my husband became fewer and further apart.
I think we've all been there.
We start with the best of intentions, the purest of motives, but life gets in the way.
Here's the thing.
I believe in the power of prayer. I think prayer is so important. It's a priority to me. And I want to cover my husband, my marriage, in prayer.
But how to start again?
That's where this book comes in.
Darlene Schlacht writes over at Time-Warp Wife- and I've really enjoyed following her blog for a couple of years now. She's also written several great books, including "The Virtuous Life of a Christ-Centered Wife" (great, by the way).
Her mission is to help couples keep Christ in the center of their marriage- which is a prayer that Trevor and I have had for our marriage before it even began.
100 Prayers for Your Marriage isn't a book just for wives- it's for you as a couple to spend time praying together for your marriage. It's perfect for quiet time together, and is a really great resource to help you pray for your husband and your marriage if you're out of the habit (like I am!), or even if you just need a little more direction in your prayer time.
You can pick up the book on Amazon--)
Let's be couples who pray for one another, pray for our marriages, and strive every day to love like God loves.
Do you pray with your husband or for your husband? How do you make prayer a priority?
