Lots of people want change in their marriage. We wish our husbands would do this or that and we The Power To Change Your Marriagewish our wives we more like this than that. So we go on a mission to change and fix them…and it usually fails.

We have the power to change our marriages through prayer! Yes, I said prayer! I know there seems to be nothing exciting or revolutionary here but there is. In fact, if you want to have a thriving marriage prayer hast to be the foundation.

We are so accustomed to handling things in our own ability that we don’t even think to pray for our spouses except to say “Lord, if you don’t do something with that man I’m gonna…” or “Lord, it’s that woman you gave me!”. Prayer is one of the most powerful tools you have in your marriage arsenal. I encourage you to use it often.

“Make this your common practice: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with.” –James 5:16 The Message

Prayer Starter: God, I want to walk in true love in my marriage. Help me to show my love by praying for my husband/wife. 

Now you take it from here. Nothing fancy just keep it real and honest with God!
Enjoy Your Marriage,
David & Lorrie McIntyre
