5 Benefits Of Praying Together As A Couple

A family that prays together, stays together. But many couples do not take advantage of saying their prayers together. It’s okay to say your personal prayer, but when it’s daybreak, couples should adopt the habit of joining hands together to pray. Here are some benefits that they will reap.

1. Praying together helps your spouse know your struggles and needs better:

Praying together about your struggles and worries also helps you both know how to better pray for each other throughout the week because you get to know each other better. And prayer provides insight on how to help and love each other better, too. These struggles that your partner would rather not tell you, they shall reveal in prayer.

2. Praying together increases trust and intimacy with spouse

Intimacy is built on trust, and trust is built on how we respond to being vulnerable with each other. Praying together helps you show and receive trust that strengthens the bonds of intimacy in your relationship.

3. Praying together reminds you that God is the sole source of life, truth, love, and hope

When you pray together, you are focusing your minds, hearts, and marriage on God. You are making your marriage God-centered. You are sharing with Him your deepest needs and desires, hopes and dreams, together. Any marriage that acknowledges Christ shall reap the benefits of Christ.

4. Praying together humbles you:

Praying about your concerns and struggles keeps you humble as you share with God and your spouse what things worry you and tempt you, or what you need to figure out. When you pray to God, you are not only talking and listening to Him but also recognizing that He knows all things and controls all things.

5. Praying together encourages vulnerability and grace:

Prayers of confession or for asking God for help against a temptation allows you to be vulnerable with each other, and to show forgiveness and grace towards each other. It may feel counter-intuitive but that vulnerability can also strengthen the love and affection you feel for one another.

Once you begin this practice you won’t want to stop, because the benefits are enormous.
