This is Part One of the Third Episode of the Marriage Journals and it is continued from What is The State of your Marriage.
Marriage is difficult! I have heard this statement many times and honestly I am sick of it. Marriage is not difficult! And marriage is not easy either. It is couples who make things in marriage difficult especially when they take the marriage designer out of it. Marriage was and is meant to be operated in certain ways. If you do not do that you will fight with your spouse until kingdom come. You will wear each other down again and again until you give up.
As mentioned in the episodes there are few things that can be game changers in marriage. These are things that can turn the tables around, and you will be having a new marriage in seven days. One most important thing that will change it all is ‘prayer.’ Yes, praying. What do I mean by this?
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. – Philippians 4:6
Statistics clearly shows that the satisfactory levels of couples who sincerely pray together regularly and for each other is distinctively very high to the point that they indicate that they do not have major problems. On the other hand those who do not engage in prayer have problems that range from minor to ‘world war three.’ Statistics also indicate that no divorce has been recorded in couples who pray together regularly, that is at least once a week. That’s why I personally believe that 99% of your problems will vanish as you engage in regular prayer together. If you are serious about turning thing over you have to take this regular prayer challenge.
In his bestselling book Relationship Rescue, Dr. Phil writes; … an interesting statistic shared by David McLaughlin in his wonderful series entitled The Role of the Man in the Family reflects that the divorce rate in America is at a minimum one out of two marriages. But the reported divorce rate among couples that pray together is about one in ten thousand. Pretty impressive statistic, even if you reduce it a thousandfold.
A research project led by Christopher G. Ellison at the University of Texas, San Antonio was reported in the “Journal of Marriage and Family” published by National Council on Family Relations. One of the critical outcomes of that study led to the National Association of Marriage Enhancement, in Phoenix, Arizona to report that when couples prayed together on a daily basis, less than 1% of those couples would end up getting a divorce. To be specific the numbers was 1 out of 1156 couples. This means that prayer has a 99.99% guaranteed chance to divorce-proof your marriage! Here is the solution you have been looking for.
You can agree that it’s a war out there. And the struggle is tearing you into pieces and threatening your family. The enemy want to see you go down and under. He wants you and your spouse to be miserable and your children to be destitute. He has planned it all for you. You have to fight and defend your spouse and your family. You have to stand up and say enough is enough, it ends today!
Daily prayer has a 99.99% guaranteed chance to divorce-proof your marriage.
I have been in many Christian homes where there is no time for family prayers. I mean this guy is a leader at church but in his home there is no family devotional time or time for prayer at all. You can guess that they do not have personal devotional time either. They only pray at church. I firmly believe that church begins at home. It is at home where Christ must dwell. A church meeting is just a two or three hours long. The more church members pray at home the strong the families and the stronger the church.
