What couples are less likely to divorce?
If you could do one thing to help make your marriage last, would you do it? Last week’s topic was, “How to have a Prosperous Marriage in 2018.” I shared 10 keys to having a prosperous marriage, and this week we will focus on the the first key. Praying together on a daily basis is not only the key to having a prosperous marriage, but statistics say that less than 1% of couples who pray together on a daily basis get a divorce. That is a pretty low percentage compared to statistics that say 50% of first time marriages end in divorce and 78% of second marriages.
I am sure you have heard the saying, “A family who prays together, stays together.” The same is true for couples, when a husband and wife pray together on a daily basis, they are less likely to divorce. Prayer is simply taking time to talk to the Almighty God! Since God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16), He will help a husband and wife to stay together. Therefore, each time that a couple prays, they are inviting God into their relationship to work out every detail. God loves to be invited, (Matthew 18:20). “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
Praying together is so powerful and very beneficial! Here are a few benefits:
- It helps to bring a husband and wife closer together
- It helps a couple to hear each other’s heart
- It allows couples to cast their cares on the Lord
- It helps to promote intimacy, forgiveness and healing
- It helps to strengthen you individually and as a couple
There is so much to share with the Lord. Pick a time that will work for you and your spouse and commit to praying each day. Cast all of your cares on Him. The more you do it together, the more comfortable you will be come.
God wants to hear from you and your spouse. Will you pray?
Until next week . . .
