From Love and Respect for a Lifetime by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs
If you and your spouse are not taking time to pray together, I urge you to do so. Prayer can be a tremendous opportunity for the husband in particular as he invites his wife to talk to the Lord about whatever is concerning them. One thing is for sure: there is power when two people pray. For example, God may be allowing the two of you to have a problem because His deepest purpose is that the two of you come together and find wisdom and strength in Him.
You need only spend a few minutes expressing to God the concerns of your heart. Yet I know some men feel praying with their wives is unmanly. On the contrary, if your wife is typical, she will see you as more of a man because she wants you to be the family’s spiritual leader. She feels more secure when you take an active role in guiding Bible reading and praying together.
