Give Your Marriage a Massage!


Portions of today's blog post are excerpted from We All Married Idiots
 Sunday is National Pray for Marriage Day. So I ask you, when was the last time you prayed for your marriage?

The high divorce rate tells me that people aren't praying. They find it easier to give up on their marriage than to give their marriage to God. How sad. Could a simple prayer save a marriage. I know a prayer saved mine.

Imagine what your marriage would be like if instead of running to a lawyer you ran to God? What if you called out to God instead of shouted at your spouse during a disagreement? Would it make a difference? I think so.

We all want great marriages. But God wants to give us even more. He says in Ephesians 3:20, He "is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine ... "

Married couples aren't asking or imagining or praying because if they were, the state of marriage would be more populated.

God doesn't want you to give up on your marriage. He wants to give you more of a marriage!  A marriage so amazing you can't even imagine it. Imagine that!


Ahhh—Prayer is like a marriage massage. Why don't we do it more often? Why do we wait so long to pray and to give our marriages to God? Why are we so quick to throw away what God wants to bless?

Let us stop being idiots (no offense intended) and begin praying for our marriages.


Happy National Prayer for Marriage Day! Let's celebrate and pray for our marriages! Will you begin today? Right now? Please pray and enjoy the splash of serenity God spills on your love.

I like the idea of using prayer as a marriage massage, Elaine! I don't want to be an idiot.
