Day 16 - Love Intercedes

Today's Verse:

Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. – 3 John 2
Today's Message:

This message is about praying for your spouse. If you don't pray for your spouse, who will? If your spouse doesn't pray for you… who will?

Prayer brings things to the front. It brings them into the conscience where most people can start acknowledging whatever it is that they are praying about exists. I'm not a psychologist, but I believe that is the way it works. We focus on what we think about. Find our treasure, find our heart. That sort of thing.

So by praying for your spouse, you are more aware of the things that you would like to see in your spouse.

The problem with this dare for me is that I KNOW my heart needs more help than my spouse's. I'm married above my stature. I'm over married. I'm fortunate to have her as my wife. Any other woman would have given up on me by now.
Today's Questions:

  • Do you feel like giving up on your marriage? Jesus said to pray instead of quitting (Luke 18:1).
  • Are you stressed out and worried? Prayer can bring peace to your storms (Philippians 4:6-7)
  • Do you need a major breakthrough? Prayer can make the difference (Acts 12:1-7).
  • Has your scolding or nagging been working?
Today's Dare:

Begin Praying for your spouse's heart. Pray for three specific areas where you desire for God to work in your spouse's life and in your marriage.

  • Have you experienced the power of prayer in the past?
    • Yes.
  • What did you choose to pray about?
    • Personal
  • Was it easy for you, or did it feel foreign to you?
    • Praying isn't foreign to me. Praying for my wife isn't foreign to me…. But praying for her heart is. I think she has a wonderful heart. But, I do believe in obedience, so I will continue to add this to my prayers.
If anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He listens to him (John 9:31). - -
