Your Marriage

I know, what you’ve always wanted to see! A picture of me on our wedding day, right? {smiles}. I dare not say the year we were married, you just might find out how old I am! Yet seeing the high neck collar and puffy sleeves you could probably guess the era. btw- He’s a cutie isn’t he? Ok….

On a serious note. As I awakened yesterday morning I felt impressed of the Lord to post this week about marriage. When you saw the words “Your Marriage” did you feel a little sting?  Throughout the ordeal of infertility your relationship with your spouse can be tested. If you haven’t experienced this yet, you most likely will.  Now I don’t mean to project anything upon your marriage, yet dealing with such an intimate subject as ‘making a baby’–the sparks seem to fly in more ways than one.(If you know what I mean.) So this week I will share info from what I’ve gathered over the years, my experience and a lesson I’ve taught in the support group. Stay tuned.

I’m praying specifically this week for our marriages. I am believing these God-centered posts will give you a new attitude towards your spouse as you are dealing with infertility.

The first installment is The Prayer of Agreement.  Thanks for dropping by. Have a great week!


The Prayer of Agreement

What is the Prayer of Agreement?

The Prayer of Agreement involves two or more people using their faith to come into agreement with God regarding a specific need, request, or concern.  To agree in prayer means there is a harmony in the spirit about the matter that must be in conformity with the Word and will of God. God promises to grant this request.

Biblical References:

“Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.  For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
Matthew 18:19-20 (NKJV)

“What you say to one another is eternal.  I mean this.  When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action.  And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.”
Matthew 18:19-20 (The Message)

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.  If one person falls, the other can reach out and help.  But someone who falls alone is in real trouble…A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer.  Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NLT)
