War Room: Marriage

21st December 2015:

I have not seen the movie, The War Room.  But, I have read about it, and I do believe in the power of prayer.

I have prayed for a long, long time for four things:

  1. For God to protect and nurture and bless my marriage.
  2. To have financially prosperity.
  3. To be slim, fit, trim and healthy.
  4. To look after, and guide, Baby Girl through life – to parent her and love her where hubby and I will so often fail.

I am going to war for my marriage – the one thing that I have learnt is that my marriage is far more important to God than it is to me. So, my prayer is to trust God, to relax and enjoy the wonderful marriage I do already have, but to focus on what God calls me to do to grow intimacy with my husband, like worshiping God, respecting my husband and making myself available for making love. God has already answered so many of these prayers as our love-making has really blossomed over the last couple of weeks. But, I do want to remove all fear and anxiety in my marriage that I can relax and enjoy my marriage, and focus on God and His good grace.

This page will record what I am learning and God’s answer to my prayer.

23rd December 2015:  

Last night, I woke up feeling anxious.  And it is always my concern when I feel anxious or out of sorts, how will this impact my marriage.  Will my husband eventually get so tired of me that he will move on?  I need to always remember that intimacy and worshiping God is my top priority, and then intimacy with my husband will follow.  If I focus on building a strong foundation with my husband with God as my guide and saviour, having moments of anxiety will not negatively impact my marriage.  I pray that God will always help me to do that – in Jesus’ name.

15th January 2016:

This year, I am focusing on intimacy – greater intimacy, more lovemaking and growing my relationships with both God and my husband.

1 John 4:18 New International Version (NIV)

18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.  The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

I am at war for my marriage.
