Husbands should endeavor to pray for their wives daily. This may sound religious but I have found it to work. Apart from the fact that it draws the husband to God, making him take his rightful place as the priest, it takes the pressure off the wife also.

Everybody now looks up to God who is able to transform our marriage and make us better people. The focus shifts to God. The husband sees God as the One who will answer his prayers and he’s patiently waiting on God.

It also affords the husband to pray for those virtues he likes to see in his wife.
Praying together brings God into the scene where He becomes a partner with us. He sees to it that there are changes and our marriages become better.

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. – Eph 5:25 – 28

The husbands should be responsible in the transformation process of their wives. They should be committed to seeing their wives transformed to what they want them to be.

So dear wives, a little trick that works is to always ask your husband to lay his hands on you and pray for you. It gives your husband a feeling of your being submissive to him and a willingness to want to please him. It will also reduce quarrels. You can’t be fighting and your husband praying for you.

Note that the devil will try and fight this. He hates this kind of unity and agreement because of the power it generates. Even when there is a fight, make sure you apologize and ask your husband to pray for you.

For example, if your husband is always complaining that you are slow, let him begin to talk to God about it. So he prays for you that God should make you faster or quicker in doing your things.

Two things will likely happen. It is either he begins to see himself as complaining and begins to see the good side of your being slow, or he accept you that way and work on being more patient.
If he still complains, you tell him, Senior, we have prayed about it.

In this way, the wife takes the pressure of performance off her and allows the process of change to take its course.
You could use this method to kick start praying together for those who don’t pray together at all.

May God give us victory, Amen!

God bless our homes and marriages.

I cooperate with my spouse to have an award winning marriage.

Lord, teach me how to love my husband/wife well

Eph 5:25 [KJV]Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Pray for your spouse
