PRAY UNTIL LOVE LAST
“We can hive together is a matter of understanding.”
The rate of divorce is becoming higher each passing day. The sad part of this is that Believers in Jesus Christ are not exempted. Divorce has put many Christians and non-Christians at par.
This ought not be so.
The instruction of Apostle Paul to the Thessalonians Believers goes thus,
“Pray without ceasing.”
Brethren, pray for us.” I Thessalonians 5:17,25 NKJV
This shows that prayer should not be a handled with levity. It is a very serious issue, call it the backbone of a successful marriage. You can also call it the key that opens the door to a successful marriage.
To make a choice of a live partner calls for serious prayer. It is essential that the single must contact the only Match-Maker, that is God, to make the right partner available. What most people look for is never available. What is this? A PERFECT PARTNER.
Who is available is a right Partner comes. To be connected with the right person calls for prayer. When the right partner comes, to live together calls for understanding, as quoted earlier. Do you know that knowledge and wisdom are companions of understanding?
These three companions need to be acquired by prayer. If you have the right prayer to “download” the wisdom you need to deal with your partner without stress.
Not only this, you need to pray on every aspect of your marriage. A wise woman who is an author once asserted that she found time to pray on every part of her husband’s body. She said that was her way of dedicating every part of her man’s body to the Lord.
Do you know what? It works! Do you have time to do the same? Can you find time to do likewise? (1 Cor 13:8a), but Satan, the Devil on several occasions ties to pull the pillar of love between couples. Prayer can be used as a defensive weapon to destroy his antics. Before he attacks, you can defend your territory securely with prayer. You can close every loophole by which he may want to destabilize your marriage.
Prayer in a loving relationship is not a once and for all matter. It should not be a “once-upon-in-time” issue. It must be current. It must be ongoing.
Whenever a couple cease to uproot every seed of bitterness with prayer it can cause any unhold hardship. The result can be anything but good.
Every couple must bear it in mind that it is never too late to pray for their love to last long. The enemy of every home does not respect the age of any marriage. That is the reason thirsty, forty fifty or more years old marriage end up in separation or divorce.
I love the acronym P.U.L.L. whatever you pull comes to you. You draw it to yourself.
Note these words of the Scriptures:
“Though one may be overpowered
by another, two can withstand
And a threefold cord is not quickly
broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12. NKJV
This translates that you need to incorporate your spouse and the children whom the Lord had given you into your Pray Until Love Last in your relationship and home.
Stay blessed and prepared for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
