This is a very interesting topic that throws light on the realities of marriage. Unfortunately, many of us christian women fantasize about a man who will daily hold our hands in prayer. It is a beautiful scene to behold and we women who are romantic at heart always yearn for such connection. But I believe if… Continue reading A New Wife Shares Her Views about Praying with Our Husbands
Is your marriage difficult right now? Are you wondering, “Should I stay or should I go”?
I have been doing an amazing Kay Arthur study on prayer with a ladies’ group at my church this summer called, “Lord, teach me to pray.” I love her point (pg. 54): “And what is the root of all sin?

I Wish My Husband Would… Continue reading What Is Godly Spiritual Leadership?

This is such a deep desire in so many of our hearts as wives – that our husbands would pray with us. Prayer is an incredible blessing and an unspeakable gift of God.… Continue reading “I Wish My Husband Would Pray with Me More” – Part 2
I attended the first session of a Bible study about prayer this morning and we talked about the benefits of having a prayer journal. I LOVE journaling – it is the way I prefer to pray because writing things out forces me to stay focused and helps me cement what I am reading in Scripture… Continue reading Gentlemen – Would You Help Us Better Understand the Mechanics of Masculine Prayer?
