for Prayer :
right time and place to pray together. For some, that may be last thing at night,
but if you have different sleep patterns, you may need to find a different time. Once
you've found the best time, then make an appointment with each other in your diaries.
Do talk about your prayer needs. You may want
to pray about issues affecting one of you, about issues facing your children or other
loved ones, future direction etc. However, don't go for an indepth discussion, since the
prayer time can quickly become overtaken.
You will need to become comfortable with one
another's differing prayer styles. Remember, no one style is "better" than
another. Also practice listening prayer, being confortable
with silences during your prayer time that enable you to listen to what God may want to
say to you.
You may find a structured pattern for prayer
helpful : either the informal structure of the ACTS pattern, or a
more structured pattern such as the one suggested here. But do
allow yourselves the flexibility to pray openly and freely about the issues of the day.
Do persevere - this may be an aspect of
marriage that will take a while for you to feel comfortable. But as you persevere, you are
strengthened and blessed by the God who brought you together and who cares for you.
