Why Pray Together?


You know the old saying that a family that prays together stays together? Well, it is true for those who are truly together as they pray. I know it is can be difficult for couples for who run busy and different, schedules but when a thing is important time must be made for it. Once you are able to start and sustain it, it will blossom into intense prayers as you delight in God as a couple. You could start with spending a couple of minutes by your bedside worshipping and praising God before you go to sleep each night and watch the Holy Spirit will take over those moments and grow them into something deep moments together with Him.

Below are some benefits of couples praying together:

Praying together as a couple presents them as one before God and I cannot really explain it but there is a bonding that takes place in couples that pray together. As they spend time together with The One who made them one, I believe He becomes like the glue that holds them together in each other’s hearts.

…and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12

Similar to bonding is the ability if praying together as man and wife to unify their hearts. They both get to know the hearts of each other as they share their prayer needs, and from there learn what they desire so that at their separate prayer times they know how best and what best to pray for their spouse. They are working in spiritual harmony with each other and when this is achieved, they flow towards the same direction in their marriage.

God’s presence
We all know that prayer draws the presence of God. When a couple prays together as one, the presence of God will continually live in their hearts and home. The presence of God is always released through heartfelt prayer and what more could a couple desire than the ever abiding presence of God in their home?

While when one person prays much power is released. James 5:16
But when a man and his wife get together to pray the power of agreement is released, they can bind and loose and effect changes from heaven on earth, their marriage, children, finances and all. It is true that any two can pray this prayer of agreement but what better two than a couple whose hearts are united in love with God, a couple whose voices rise to God as one flesh.

Again I say unto you, that 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. Matthew 18:19

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. Matthew 19:6

Do you pray with your spouse, do you have a testimony to share on its benefits?

    My husband and i pray together. Some days are better than others of course :). But we purpose to keep it as a daily goal, even if we don’t bring down the roof every night 🙂 Intentional focus helps! Great thoughts!

    {Melinda} I know this is true. I don’t pray together with my husband enough. Thank you for the reminder. I’m going to talk to my husband about how we can make this happen consistently. I know we need this kind of harmony and power in our lives and situations.

      I don’t either Melinda, but I am hoping to work on it and see how I can initiate a consistency. Thanks for coming by.

    Yes! Nothing bonds tighter than bending knee and praying together. My husband and I do this. It’s hard to be mad at someone you bend the knee with and go together to the throne of God with.
    Congrats on being featured! May it inspire many, young and old:)

      Prayer does bind couples more. And it is hard to stay mad Kristin. Thanks a lot for coming by and leaving your encouraging thoughts.

    I agree! When my husband and I pray together, especially if we are in the middle of a disagreement or conflict, it brings so much more harmony to our discussion. We are both humbled and are more likely to apologize for our own wrongs.
