Feeling as though someone else doesn’t care as much as you do hurts a lot. You want things to work out between you and your spouse, but you don’t see any evidence that your spouse wants the same thing. What can you do when you care more than your spouse?
Have you felt stuck in your prayer life? Does it seem your prayers don’t get anywhere? Things are really bad, and you need something big from God. Or you feel overwhelmingly frustrated, confused, or listless. Especially in tough times it’s more important than ever that you learn to pray for a breakthrough.
The different world we are living in today places more pressure on everyone, and on your marriage. Like a tube of toothpaste, pressure forces what’s really inside to leak out. I hope you and your spouse have joined forces and rallied to meet this stressful time together. Or perhaps lockdown has hurt your marriage in some unexpected ways.
Praying is a good thing. Always! For the believer prayer should be the first thing we go to. And yet we know that some prayers are more effective than others, at least to our human experience. So how should you pray during the COVID-19 crisis?
