Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I have some close friends whose marriage is in serious trouble. Sometimes I feel like I just don’t know how to pray for them. Maybe you’ve been in the same situation.
I do know that God shows us His will in His Word. So if I pray according to what the Scripture says, I can know that I’m praying God’s will.
For example, I know from Ephesians 5 that it’s God’s will for this husband to love his wife in the same way Christ loves the church. So I can pray that this husband will learn to do that.
I also pray based on God’s Word that this wife will learn to reverence her husband and to submit to his leadership in their home. I pray that they would walk in love, in oneness, and in truth.
The next time you want to pray according to God’s will and you’re not quite sure what that is, try opening your Bible, and you’ll find out.
