Do you pray with others outside of Church?

Do you pray with others outside of Church?

Share this:

My wife and I recently met with a couple who had been in ministry together and married for over 25 years.  During our 2 hour conversation with them they gave us some pretty sound advice.  The phrase that caught my attention the most was “I’m not sure if you all pray together, if you’re not, you should start, our marriage took a turn for the better once we started to make an effort to pray together”.

Pray together?  You mean outside of blessing our food or in church?  It really never came across my mind to do so.  I knew we both prayed separately but it never occurred to me to do it as a unit.  I soon mentioned wanting to implement this into our relationship and my wife was all for it.

Since we’ve begun the process I’ve noticed that I’ve become a lot more relaxed and patient with our communication misunderstanding (you know those things that tend to spark arguments).  From time to time I would let some of them get way out of control on my end, but since we’ve been praying I’ve noticed the want to not let those communication mishaps turn into arguments.  Previously if we argued we argued.  Prayer seems to be changing my attitude.

So the question I have for you is do you pray with your spouse, significant other, child(ren), family members or friends daily?  If not, why?
