Is there ever a time when prayer with your wife seems more desirable to you than sex? The goal is to not just be her nearest choice for prayers, but to be her favorite choice for prayer.

 

In the Bible, when Hannah was distressed over her barrenness, where did she most want to pray? At the temple, where she might be blessed by the high priest:

 

In bitterness of soul Hanna wept much and

prayed to the LORD….

Hannah replied, “I am a woman who is

deeply troubled…. I have been praying here out

of my great anguish and grief.”

Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God

of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.”

She said, “May your servant find favor in your

eyes.” Then she went her way and ate something,

and her face was no longer downcast. (1 SAMUEL

1:10, 15-18)

 

Hannah left in faith deeply satisfied by Eli’s encouragement. God calls you to play Eli’s role in your home. You must be the one your wife yearns to pray with.
