Fearful News?–Turn the TV OFF!

Powerful prayers are those where two or more gather together and pray, agreeing upon any given subject.

This is not to diminish the power of the prayer closet.  For it is in there, that we learn who we are in Christ, the Father, and the Holy Spirit.  It is in the prayer closet that we build our relationship with Christ.  It’s where we bear our souls, and we know that it is safe to shed tears.  If truth were told, no one wants to hear anyone cry during prayer.  It upsets people because they usually have no idea how to respond or what to say.  It takes a seasoned Christian with lots of discernment to deal with tears. 

Two or more.  Now, that’s where we come when we are finished in the prayer closet.  We strengthen the bonds that hold us together as Christians through community prayer.  We bless one another with our steadfast love for God and for the fellowship of kindred spirits.  Many times one very strong Christian will bring several together, teach them the art of prayer, and it becomes so comfortable.  Too comfortable in fact because we tend to enjoy it more than the prayer closet.

We learn to Affirm

  1. Our faith 
  2. One another
  3. Our love for each other
  4. The love of the Father for us

As married couples, the Sacrament of Marriage is a blessing – See Ephesians 5:22.  How else could we make it through such a close relationship with another human being, kiddos and their needs, heartaches, and trials?  If it weren’t for the love of God and the blessings found in the Sacrament of Marriage we’d probably hit the seven-year itch, throw in the towel, and move on.

But we are children of God, and we hold on tightly to his abiding love for us.  We pray that our lives reflect his grace and loving kindness.

Now, all that said.  Do you pray together as a couple?  I am amazed to find that too many Christians do not pray together as husband and wife.  Is it that painful?  Is it that hard to find a time?  Is it because we don’t know how to do conversational prayer?  Is it because we are afraid of being embarrassed?  It is probably all the above and some more.

Under Pages on this blog, you will see a Prayer for Tough Times.  This is a work that took several years to put together.  It covers all the bases, and then some.  Prayer is a very powerful tool to bring blessing, protection, love, and hope to our lives.  When this particular prayer is prayed alone it is great.  When prayed with a friend it is great.  When, however, it is prayed as a couple under the Lord’s covering of the marriage, it is the single most powerful thing you can do as a married man and woman.

With our lives and this nation in such turmoil, we need couples praying. 

Praying for Protection and Healing for our:

  1. Families
  2. Jobs and finances
  3. Homes
  4. Good ealth or restored health
  5. Pastors
  6. The nation and our elected officials 

And the list goes on. 

Too many are sitting in front of the TV, wringing their hands, and worrying about tomorrow.  Get up, wipe off that spirit of despair.  Put on the garments of praise, joy, and love regardless of your circumstances.  God is in control, and the evil spirits that would have you think otherwise quiver in fear when you stand and praise the name of JESUS.

Yes, it’s that easy.  Praise, worship and prayer.  The King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Almighty God our Father is right there, waiting to hear your shouts of joy, and your prayerful petitions.   


Hallelujah!  Sweet Victory in JESUS!
