Spiritual Warfare: 'Spousal Mistreatment Hinders Prayer'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, November 10, 2022

In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.
— 1 Peter 3:7 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, thank You for my spouse. Thank You that she has put up with me and encouraged me and been faithful to me in spite of my self-centeredness and pride. Help her to forgive me for being so flippant and unappreciative in the past, Lord, and help me from now on to express my love for her more often and with more tenderness. I confess that I do this not only to obey Your instructions here but also so my prayers for others won’t be hindered anymore. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
