This week let’s do a second excerpt on prayer.
Suggestions for Pursuing the Discipline of Prayer
3. Pray regularly with your wife (if married) or an accountability partner.
Whatever the statistical significance, praying with your wife symbolizes a depth of relationship with God and each other. Shaun, from Bozeman, Montana, asked his men’s group, “How many of you pray with your wives?” Only one of the eight men answered, yes. For the next year they held each other accountable. As one of the men said, “It’s pretty hard to be upset with your wife or to be arguing and still come before God with a clean heart. It forces us to communicate and humble ourselves before each other before we do something as intimate as praying together. It just permeates through the rest of your family, and day.”
