Start praying with your spouse and then buckle your seatbelt for adventure! Here are a few prayer adventures Rodney and I shared:
Ministry Burnout. Rodney had hit a wall and was at a crisis point in ministry. He was exhausted spiritually, physically, and emotionally. We prayed together and God led us to make a move to a church in a different city where God renewed Rodney’s call to ministry.
Financial Crisis. It was a wild and crazy time in our lives: We had a house in a different city to sell (on the market for 18 months; interest rates were a ghastly 16 percent); we discovered we were pregnant with our first child; the rental house we were living in sold, and we only had two weeks to move! This was a tough season for us, but on our knees together, God gave us peace to trust Him.
Daughters and Boys. Rodney and I just knew a certain boy wasn’t right for our daughter, Jennifer, but the young man was very interested and so was she. We hit our knees, and God moved that boy several states away! Our girls learned fast about the power of parents praying.
Rodney and I have prayed for many things over the years. Many times we just praise Him together for the miracle of our relationship with Him, the wonder of His grace and mercy, and the unbelievable reality that He’s involved in our lives. Want an extraordinary marriage? Pray together as a team, and hang on!
