Pray it, Don't Say it

Posted by Lori Merrill on 09/20/2019


Early in our marriage I would speak my mind freely about everything under the sun. Thankfully I was exposed to 
1 Peter 3:1 and began praying that I would make changes to live according to this truth in God’s Word. I can attest to the fact that this verse had the most profound and life-changing impact on our marriage: “Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives.”
.
After learning this truth and trying to apply it to my daily life I adopted this motto of “Pray it, don’t say it!” It was amazing how such a simple truth can change the trajectory of your marriage and life! But it did. .
For me to begin to pray about concerns, opinions and disagreements instead of speaking them first, was a great self-discipline to implement and helped our marriage. Of course, we can’t do it without the help of God. (It was helpful in many other relationships in my life as well).
.
If you need help in this area let’s band together in prayer. Leave us a comment and we will happily pray for you!
In His Love,
Lori
