People go to God in prayer for issues that trouble them, sometimes forgetting to also go to God in prayer for what they have that he has provided. It’s easy for sisters whose biological clocks are ticking to ask God for a husband but what of sisters who have husbands? When last did you pray for them?
This reading is not only for sisters- I know women have always been looked at to be the praying mantis who God responds to quickly but when a man also prays, the shocking effect, brings an answer too. The issue of praying for whoever we are involved with may sound absurd to some; especially to those who are engaged or who have boyfriends but praying for one another does a whole lot than people can see in the physical.
Take for instance divorces- if prayers were said, would it not have saved their marriages? What of those who lose people to death a week before their marriages or a day, would a simple prayer not have saved them? There is more to life than success, food and gadgets- life isn’t ours and it is by God’s grace that we take our breathe
Prayers have always been seen as the duty of a woman and like most people those are the women I stand in awe for because when you come against he she prays for, its also her and her God you fight against. I do think however, that it would be pleasant to hear that a man pray for himself and his significant other.
Women may pray because they say they are ‘’late in marriage’’ but so also can a man be- men have been forced to console themselves that they do not have biological clocks ticking but what of your intellectual clock? #lol- another topic for another day.
It is always more than a relationship that we pray for, for whoever we are involved with either by marriage, relationship or just flings, has a past, a present and a future; though not with us, we should pray because with or without us, they exist for a reason and that reason has to be fulfilled.
There are always reasons to pray; you can thank God for your wife and kids, you can pray for your unborn children, you can pray for your stubborn girlfriend, your flirting boyfriend, pray for your involvement with one another, pray for your purpose, your health, your attitude, pray so you do not get hurt. God is also interested in your earthly relationships.
Call me crazy but apart from your time given, prayer is the best gift you can give.
