As a newlywed, I had no idea the power and strength that comes from praying specifically and strategically for my marriage.
Sure, every once in awhile, I’d offer up a request or something I was grateful for. But committing to praying for my marriage was foreign to me.
Instead I fumbled through the disappointments, expectations and misunderstandings on a whim.
And I quickly grew exhausted.
After all, marriage wasn’t what I expected and no matter how hard I tried, I never seemed to measure up.
Satan was working. And I knew little of one of the most powerful protectors of my heart and my marriage.
It wasn’t until I got to the end of my rope that I started asking God for answers.
What could I do to find peace?
How could I surrender my expectations?
Where could I discover strength?
