The Number One Problem Men Face
I know that the economic crisis has most people focused on money. But can you guess what the number one problem we see men struggling with year in year out?
If we take all the problems men face and put the marriage problem in one stack, and put all the other problems in another stack, guess what? The marriage problem alone is bigger than all the other problems combined.
Teach your men how to do something practical and spiritual about their marriages. Teach them to pray “The Marriage Prayer.” I’ve been praying this 68 word prayer for some time now. I don’t know if it has changed our marriage, but it has certainly changed me.
Here’s the prayer:
“Father, I said, ‘Till death do us part.’ I want to mean it. Help me love You more than her, and her more than anyone or anything else. Help me bring her into Your presence today. Make us one, like You are three-in-one. I want to hear her, cherish her and serve her—so she will love You more and we can bring You glory. Amen.”
David Delk, Man in the Mirror’s President, and I have written a book of the same title that unpacks “The Marriage Prayer.” You can order Prayer Cards and learn more at www.themarriageprayer.com.
Yours for changed lives,
