Practical Prayer Tips for Couples

 

As a couple, the prayer of agreement is a powerful tool.

God highly esteems unity. Jesus said in Matthew 18:19 (ESV), “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”  The husband and wife who will take the time to pray together will not only create unity and harmony in their home, but God will work on their behalf to bring their requests to pass.

Here are a few practical tips to help you and your spouse get started praying together.

  1. Make a detailed list of requests that include every area of your home, family, work, etc.
  2. Write major requests on index cards that you can carry with you. Write out at least three scriptures on the back of each card as a reference for your faith.
  3. Be thankful when you pray. Start each prayer with a “thank you, God” attitude.
  4. Be specific when praying, and remember, there is no situation too small or too big that you can’t pray in agreement over,
  5. Keep it short and to the point. Many things don’t require you to pray for hours.
  6. Keep a prayer journal of your requests. As they are answered, date them and check them off the list.

No Accidents – No Surprises

The book of Esther is the story of a young Jewish girl who had so much favor with the king that she was chosen to be his queen. But it wasn’t just a random coincidence that she was selected for that position.

The king didn’t know she was Jewish, but God did. She was divinely appointed to be in that position at that specific time in order to keep the Jewish race from being annihilated. Her uncle, Mordecai told Esther, “Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14 NLT).
