3 Keys to Personal Prayer in Marriage
- Be Flexible and Creative
In different seasons of life and vary circumstances, you may have to be flexible/creative when it comes to your personal prayer time. It may not look the same each day and it may have to occur at different times. Perhaps, you have to get up earlier or maybe pray while nursing a baby. The Lord just wants time with you. So, get creative and make time for him each day.
- Be Supportive
In a marriage, one of the most loving things you can do for your spouse is to help them and support them in making time for personal prayer each day. Perhaps, this looks like you taking over the kids for a little while so that your spouse can go pray. Or maybe, it is learning to offer a gentle reminder to your spouse each day regarding their personal prayer time. Communicate with your spouse and ask them how you can support them.
- Be Faithful
This may be the most important key to your personal prayer. Simply be faithful to it. If it looks different every day, that is ok. Just do it. That is the most essential part of prayer: that you do it.
