CAUSE OF MARITAL PRAYERLESSNESS

CAUSE OF MARITAL PRAYERLESSNESS 

If you want your marriage to thrive, then you MUST spend time in prayer.

One of the main reasons for prayerlessness is lack of faith in the integrity (completeness) of God’s word.

When faith is perfected we shall receive the answer.

Matt.9:29 “…according to your faith be it unto you…”

 Matt.21:21 “If ye have faith, and doubt not…ye shall say unto this mountain Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea, (and) it shall be done.”

 Mark 11:24 “Whatever things ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them.”

 Mark 9:23 “Jesus said unto him, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”

How to obtain achieving faith.

PRAISE IS THE ANSWER!

In the bible there is more emphasis on praise then there is on prayer.  Psa.145:10 “…all thy works shall praise thee…”

Praise is also the highest occupation of angels.  Rev.5:11-12 “And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and…the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the lamb!”

In heaven it is important to maintain a chorus of praise unceasingly day and night around the throne, so it must be supremely important on EARTH.

If this is what occupies the total time in heaven, it must be just as important on earth.

CASE AND POINT:  This morning I was watching T.D. Jakes.  He was preaching and said something I knew but for some reason it was profound to me today.  He said how when he became a pastor, his first church offering that came in the collection plate was a total of $2.50.   He said how much the enemy had tormented him as he was preparing for the opening of his church.  He looked at the plate and said, “The devil hassled me over just $2.50” Then he said that it wasn’t about the $2.50 it was about where he was headed and what he would accomplish.

We have an enemy who knows the power within us!

The enemy knows how important our marriage is and where we are HEADED as a couple and what we will accomplish.

The enemy knows that you are a champion in Gods eyes and that you will damage and destroy what satan wants to achieve.

You were MADE to be fruitful and create.

You scare the enemy because of who you are.

You don’t have to have a title in your church or a prominent position to PRAISE God.

Praise is the spark plug of faith.

For ANSWERED prayer we have to pray in faith and praise gives us faith.

When you praise and pray, then God can trust you with bigger problems and more insight.

Whoever heard of an athlete training for an obstacle race, pleading with his trainer to remove the OBSTACLES?

There will always be trials and obstacles in our marriage that will cause us to loose faith.

How can you be an OVERCOMER in your marriage if there is nothing to overcome?

If you want what you’ve never had, then you must do what you’ve never done!

NOW GOD CAN TRUST YOU WITH BIGGER PROBLEMS!!

NOTE:  Daily there is a new post to help your marriage be a success.
