Finances In Marriage

Prayer: Trusting In God’s Provision

Dear Lord, Sometimes I fear that we don’t have enough. My desires and wants get mistaken as needs, and it is easy to fall into discontentment. Please help me to trust in You for our finances and trust in Your provision. You are our God, provider, and refuge. You know our every need and how to take care of them. Please especially help us to not take out our fears and insecurities in an attitude towards each other.  Rather show us how to appreciate and love one another, trusting in You for our needs in Jesus’ name AMEN!

Prayer: Getting Rid Of Debt

Dear Lord, Thank You for all that You bless us with! Thank You for the simple necessities that You provide daily like food, clothing, and shelter. We are so sorry that many times we rely on our own abilities to get us through each day, instead of running to You! Our ways are not even close to Your ways! Our society claims that their is freedom in debt, but You tell us not to be in debt to anyone, except for the debt of love! We are sorry that we have allowed it to be acceptable to fall into the trap of debt, relying on our ability to pay it back, when the truth is we can’t. And with the debt that has seemed to

Prayer: Your Marriage

Dear God, I pray for every marriage all around the world. I ask that You would guard it from the enemy. If the enemy has a hold on any marriage I ask that You remove him in Jesus’ Name! I pray for restoration of relationships. Emotional, mental and physical healing for both husbands and wives. I pray Your Holy Spirit reveals Your presence in very personal ways and teaches us how to truly love our spouses. I ask that You would divinely intervene were spouses are being abused, where finances are unstable, where husbands and wives are bitter and loveless! I pray spouses stand in faith to see their marriages redeemed in Jesus’ name AMEN!

Breaking The Silence To Tell My Husband What I Was Hiding

My husband and I recently instated a morning time of intimacy with coffee and tea tradition. We get up a bit earlier than usual and sit across from each other. We read God’s Word, talk about it and pray. It has been influential in setting the tone in our relationship for the day. The third morning in, I could not stop thinking about something I had been avoiding. I had been hiding something from my husband and I knew I needed to break the silence, especially after hearing my husband read a Psalm and a Proverb. It was as if God was sitting at the table with us, cheering us on, but in a serious way. I felt Him nudge my heart with this message,

Neon Lies – Don’t Call The Number, Call On God!

My husband and I were driving home the other night and as we passed by billboards that stood high above ground, there was one that made me nauseous. The advertisement simply read: Fast divorce and bankruptcy… call this number!” My heart sank in my chest from the weight of a burden I felt for all the people who see that billboard on a daily basis. I am aware that there are circumstances that lead people to one or both of these routes, but I find it disgusting how our society flaunts these two options as a quick way to make your life better. Such a lie! The mentality adopted in this generation is clearly a self-centered one. We need to be satisfied fast and easy, whatever it

Prayer: Marriage & Finances

Dear Lord, We trust in you and your provision!  We thank you for all that we have and the rich blessing you have given to us in our families.  You are worthy of our praises, so we cry out to you with joy!  We lift up our hearts to you and the stress that tries un relentingly to burden us, most significantly being finances.  We know that we need to trust in you and just lift our requests up.  As we do this, please protect us from the doubt that creeps into our minds.  Guard our hearts as we look to you and not our account balance!  Help us to run to you in times of need and not our own wisdom!  Help every husband
