Praying together encourages vulnerability and grace : Prayers of confession or for asking God for help against a temptation allows you to be vulnerable with each other, and to show forgiveness and grace towards each other. It may feel counter-intuitive but that vulnerability can also strengthen the love and affection you feel for one another.
Praying together increases trust and intimacy with spouse : Intimacy is built on trust, and trust is built on how we respond to being vulnerable with each other. Praying together helps you show and receive trust that strengthens the bonds of intimacy in your relationship. As you pray and come to agreements on matters, that discipline then builds unity and strength in the marriage.
And prayer is also where you can fight for your marriage together when the difficult days come. Praying together helps your spouse know your struggles and needs better : Praying together about your struggles and worries also helps you both know how to better pray for each other throughout the week because you get to know each other better. And prayer provides insight on how to help and love each other better, too.
Prayer changes people : I really like the quote about prayer from an actor playing C. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. Praying together reminds you that God is the sole source of life, truth, love, and hope : When you pray together, you are focusing your minds, hearts, and marriage on God.
You are making your marriage God-centered. You are sharing with Him your deepest needs and desires, hopes and dreams…together. These are just some of the very best reasons I want to encourage you to pray together, more often if you already do, or starting now if you never have.
