Attending a National Day of Prayer breakfast this morning, I realized anew the value of family to the stability of our nation and the importance of prayer to the state of our union. We live in a sin-sick world. There is no better way to fight sin than to pray.
As I say in We All Married Idiots, "Prayer paralyzes the devil and activates the Holy Spirit." When satan is paralyzed and the Holy Spirit energized, our Lord will be glorified in our marriage, in our children, in our schools, in our government, and in our world.
"Prayer works. It changes our marriages faster than nagging, screaming, silence, sexual abstinence, belittling, leaving, or any other sinful behavior satan tempts us to do. . . . Give up your troubles to the Lord. Just give up! Throw your arms up, give up, and pray! . . . satan doesn't want us to pray, which is all the more reason we should." ~ We All Married Idiots
"satan is in the family-destroying business and delights at every bite he takes out of our homes. he does a happy dance when Dan and I aren't fulfilling our wedding vows." ~ We All Married Idiots
God placed a passion in my heart for marriages. This morning as I prayed with Pastors, government officials, and the Mayor himself, I realized anew the magnitude of marriage and the power of prayer to the state of our union.
