7 Ways God Transforms a Marriage When Couples Pray Together

This summer my family and I have had many great experiences together. One of the most memorable was our family vacation to Disney World. With fun rides, food, characters, and entertainment all topped off with fireworks it's no wonder why people call this the happiest place on earth. However, not everyone we saw there was happy. 

In between lunch and walking to our next ride we over heard a couple arguing. We have no idea what they were upset about but the tense conversation seemed to escalate quickly. She was frustrated and he was angry. They both rose their voices, pointed fingers, and exchanged a few choice words before the woman walked off feeling unloved and the man still standing there completed dejected.

As you can imagine everyone was staring at the sad scene and we were all reminded that relationships are just hard. If you're married it's even harder and not even the happiest place on earth can stop the challenges our marriages will face. This fact alone is why prayer is so important, not just as individuals but together as a couple.

I can say from personal experience that praying with my husband has been such a blessing to our marriage. Anytime we take time out of our schedules to come together before God in prayer is never a waste and I'm sure the same is or can be true for you too. Here are some of the benefits we've experience by praying together.

1) Prayer Keeps You Humble

When you pray together as a couple and present your requests and thanksgiving to God it reminds you that you need God in your lives. Prayer helps a wife and husband keep in mind that we don't have to nor should we think we can have a successful marriage on our own. When we pray together we invite the power and strength of God in our marriages to do His part and to help us to do ours.
