Keys to a Good Marriage at Midlife: Prayer

No doubt about it, life gets hectic.  Sometimes finances, children and other unexpected events demand your attention.  But without prayer, the issues you are experiencing will only become more intense and create more unnecessary burdens.


Tip #6:  Prayer and Meditation


In my opinion, a marriage cannot survive without personal relationship with God.  It is through that fellowship that you will be able to renew your strength and your faith and seek the answers to the problems and questions that may plague you at any given time.


Your prayer life should be a part of everyday living.  As a matter of fact, it should grow even stronger with each passing day.  Couples who pray together stay together because prayer is the lifeline that can keep you from sinking when trouble comes.

Your tips are so helpful. My husband and I celebrated our thirty-third wedding anniversary a couple of months ago. You're right--sometimes we take each other and our marriage for granted and it's great to get the important reminders you are offering. I can't wait until the next one--learning how to fight is a biggie!!

I am in 100% agreement with you, prayer is so key, and it is so easy to overlook, even with the best of intentions. Being followers of Jesus together, and prayer, pull you together.:) claudia,
