Many Christian couples have asked me when it is appropriate to start praying together. One the one hand, I don’t see biblical commands prohibiting believers from praying together.
But I also believe praying can play a powerful part in drawing a couple together (something they should be very careful with).
I remember the weeks and months surrounding Valentine’s Day - particularly during my time as a single woman. I would have invited him to shift my heart and open my eyes to what he was doing.
Walking through the stores, you notice that the string of lights and row of trees have been replaced by red hearts, chocolates and flowers. If I knew then what I know now, here’s what I would have prayed: 1. One way I would have prayed differently is asking God to help me trust him more.
I don’t think there is anything wrong with quick prayers over meals or in public.
What I’m talking about in this post is couples that spend long periods of time praying together alone.
But there are so many things I know now, that I didn’t know then.
I had enough friends getting married that I thought, 'It’s happening to everyone else but me.' For other women, it may be a bit of that feminist mindset that you’re not supposed to want that.
