#8 Pray Together

Yes, prayer is a major key to having a vibrant, healthy marriage.  Marriage is hard.  And, we all need help beyond the resources we have within ourselves.  We hope you already pray for your marriage on a daily basis.  But, this is something one step further.  This is an encouragement to pray together.  At some point, you've probably heard the phrase "marriages that pray together, stay together".  Well, it's true.  Research has shown that when couples pray together (for their marriage, or for anything together) there are major positive impacts on their relationship, intimacy, trust, forgiveness, and many more amazing things.  And, it makes sense.  Our wise Creator designed marriage.  So, why wouldn't we seek Him together before His throne, particularly as we ask Him to help us grow in our relationship.  If you aren't doing this already, make sure you start today!
