Closer. In a Way You Didn't Expect.
By FamilyLife

Praying daily with your spouse is one of the most significant investments you can make in your marriage. But we get it, that can be a real challenge. Today's devotional (and the next two days) is an adaptation from FamilyLife's 30-Day Oneness Prayer Challenge—a simple tool to help you start a habit of just five minutes of praying together. If you like this sample, sign up to experience the entire 30 days with your spouse.

Wanting to jumpstart a new era of intimate connection between the two of you? It might not come from where you’re expecting …

Pray together.

Talking to God together brings your desires to the surface. Rather than a feel-good ritual, it’s soul-level talk that finds you instant allies. Your hearts are suddenly moving in the same direction.

Maybe you’ll uncover renewed purpose. Unified desire. Or something you didn’t even realize you were thankful for.

What could happen in your marriage if you prayed together just five minutes a day?

What are you waiting for? Sign up for FamilyLife’s Oneness Prayer Challenge right now.

The Good Stuff: “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:19-20)

Action Points: Talk with your spouse about a time when you might be able to pray—even if it means starting small. One minute together as one of you leaves for work. Three minutes before bed.
