    Day 37—Love Agrees in Prayer

     

    “Ask your spouse if you can begin praying together.  Talk about the best time to do this, whether it's in the morning, your lunch hour, or before bedtime.  Use this time to commit your concerns, disagreements, and needs before the Lord.  Don't forget to thank Him for His provision and blessing.  Even if your spouse refuses to do this, resolve to spend this daily time in prayer yourself.”

     

    Prayer is another vital piece of my walk with God I look forward to sharing with my husband. This has been a really key component in my journey. I would definitely not be where I am without daily prayer. Being home alone has even increased it. Why not? No one can tell me I am being crazy “talking to myself” and He knows how I am feeling and what I am thinking at all times, so I can “talk” to Him about it. In return the Holy Spirit fills me with peace, love, wisdom, and guidance I would had never imagined.

     

    I’m always in awe when my daily devotions, Bible Study, and the Love Dare sync up on the same day. I feel like God really wants to tell me something when it takes all of that. I was feeling some doubt this morning and all it took after reading the Love Dare chapter was to then see it reiterated in my devotions—

     

    “This, then, is how you should pray…that your will be done.” (Matthew 6:9-10). “Ask whatever you wish, and it will be given to you.” (John 15:7). On the side of asking for His will—if He desires to bless us with the best and if His desires for us are infinitely better than our requests for ourselves, why for any reason would we ask for anything other than His will? On the other hand, if we remain in Him and His words remain in us, we are to ask whatever we will, and it will be given. Yes, He wants us to ask for God’s will. He also wants us to ask for our will to be done. He wants those two wills to be one and the same.

     

    God’s will for us never contradicts our own desire for blessing He may lead us through hard times, but there will be greater blessing in the end. His eternal perspective eminently qualifies Him to take us through difficult places when He knows the ultimate outcome will fulfill our heart’s desires!

  • We should always seek out His will in our lives. Our will should be to understand and live His will.

    He will bless the desires of our hearts... And usually we have no idea what that is. We think we do in these times. But there is a much bigger satisfaction in Christ.
