TWO OF YOU!
Don’t you like these words? TWO OF YOU! That’s you and your husband. God gives a great promise to the TWO OF YOU. It’s found in Matthew 18:19 where Jesus said: “If TWO OF YOU shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.”
I know that TWO OF YOU can relate to any two people who agree together. But it is tailor-made for marriage. As husband and wife, we have the privilege and opportunity to agree together, pray, and expect God to answer.
It is sad that many couples are not aware of the power they have as a married couple to see great answers to prayer. We all face many challenges as we raise our children, but God has given us the power of prayer. The promise for the TWO OF YOU. Don’t waste this privilege.
Can I ask you: do you pray with your husband each day? Praying together is the very foundation of marriage. And can I ask you another question: if you both don’t pray for your children together, who will? No one cares as much for your children as you and your husband. And this is the greatest thing that you can do for them. Pray for them. Nothing is powerful as praying for them. Nothing will accomplish as much as praying for them!
Instead of complaining about the difficulties and challenges of parenthood, pray together about them. You’ll be amazed at what happens.
Blessings to you,
