Praying for Your Marriage

In Hebrew Chapter 11:1 of the Holy Bible, it's written “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” So after you have submitted your marriage prayer to God, you should have the faith that He will answer your prayer! However, you should also bear in mind that He usually answers at a time when you least expect Him to answer your prayer. There are even times when you are going to feel like giving up, because you have been praying for a long time, and yet your marriage problems or any other problems in general have remained unchanged or seem to be getting worst. However, you just have to keep on praying - “Pray without ceasing”, never give up, until you have overcome your situation.


Two Reasons Your Prayers Have Not Been Answered

Sometimes, the answers to our prayers can get held up, simply because of the following two reasons:

1.We keep on going back and forth with our prayers. What I am trying to say here is that, after we pray to God, instead of leaving everything to him, we keep on trying to take matters in our hands or in other words, trying to solve the problem by ourselves. It’s like asking an automobile repair person to fix your car, then taking it back trying to take care of the problem yourself, or to fix it the way you think it should be fixed, when you don’t even know the first thing about fixing a car. He is going to step aside, and allow you to do whatever you think is best!

However, in the long run, what you are going to do is to make matters worse. Either you are going to mess up what the car mechanic had already resolved or you might end up creating more problems that are going to take additional time to fix.

2.There are times when we even block our own blessings, by allowing the devil to lure us into doing things we shouldn’t be indulging in, after we have already surrendered our problems to God.

A prime example, every day, as soon as you have finished your daily morning, afternoon or evening prayer, you start to fuss with your husband or wife. Essentially, what you are doing is catering to the devil. You are literally inviting him to take up residence in your home. It’s like saying, “Hey my boy Lucifer, why won’t you come over to the house and hang with me and my wife, you know we don’t mind you hanging with us, whenever you want to.”

Guess what? He will accept the invitation, and the minute you open that door and let him in, this is going to be the beginning of trouble, worries, pain and grief! You’re going to have a very hard time getting him not only out of your house, but also out of your marriage and life in general. The harder you try to go up against him, the harder he will fight back. Have you heard of the saying “Hell broke loose?” This is what will eventually happen - he is going to invite his army into your house, your marriage or your relationship.

Now, you’re being attacked not only by Satan, but also by his entire army. Whenever you find yourself trying to rebuke him, the moment you think he is gone, don’t be shock to see a hand waving at you, saying “Hey, I am still here, I’m not ready to leave, my friends - remember you invited me - you told me I was welcomed here anytime.”

It is written In James 3:6 that where there is strife, there is also confusion and evil work. No doubt, Satan is the essence of strife. What constant strife does, it not only creates division between you and your spouse, it can completely diffuses your faith. If you allow strife to remain in your household, what you are unconsciously doing, is building a bridge between yourself and God. When you pray, you are expecting your marriage problems to be resolved, but in order for this to happen, you need to have faith - not a diffusion of faith! Finally, if you would like your marriage prayer to be answered, then you don’t need to be separated from God, due to strife between you and your partner. You need to stay tightly connected to God!
