I absolutely LOVE to hear my wife pray. About a year ago I wrote this about how husbands and wives should be praying together. I still believe that prayer with your spouse can be as special and intimate as your sexual relationship with them.
I heard someone quote a statistic recently that said, “Only 8% of married couples pray together.” My first thought was, “No way is this possible,” but the more I’ve thought about it, I’m beginning to think that maybe the statistic is right.
So the BIG question is, “Why aren’t married couples praying together?”
I’m going to bet in most cases that it’s because the men won’t man-up, take the lead and say to their wives, “Honey, let’s spend some time in prayer together.” How do I know? I was there once too. I have no doubt, if the husbands would simply ask, the wives would take them up on it in a heartbeat. Men, if you are not praying with your wife, you’re missing out on some incredible intimacy.
I have NO clue how to put a poll on my blog, but I would love to know if you pray with your spouse. Leave me a comment, either anonymously or not, that simply says, “Often,” “Rarely,” or “Never.” I’m hoping we average out better than 8% on our survey.
So which of those 3 is it?
