How Does One Even Pray For A Spouse?

Prayer can be very powerful. God answers prayers. But prayers must be done the right way. As a single, how do you pray for a spouse? As a married person, how do you pray for your spouse?
 
First of all, we need to know those things that can hinder your prayers. Let’s take a look at a few of them.
 
Hindrances to Answered Prayers
 
1. When you are living in a habitual sin
Notice I didn't say, when you commit a sin, but when you are living in a habitual sin. You can make mistakes, and God made allowances for that because we are human and we live in the days of our flesh. It is just that it is good to avoid even the mistakes altogether. Living in a habitual, unrepentant sin will definitely hinder your prayers.
 
"Look! Listen! GOD's arm is not amputated—he can still save. GOD's ears are not stopped up—he can still hear. There's nothing wrong with God; the wrong is in you. Your wrongheaded lives caused the split between you and God. Your sins got between you so that he doesn't hear." (Isa 59:1-2, MSG)
 
In other words, when you have done something over and over again, it is no longer a mistake, it has become a habit and that will hinder prayers from being effective. We have been called to live a disciplined life as children of God and the Holy Spirit is always there to help us live according to God’s intents.
 
So, what do you do? Ask for forgiveness and make up your mind. The voice of Jesus to the woman found in adultery still resonates even till today: “Go and sin no more!”
 
2. Unforgiving Spirit
The second hindrance to answered prayers is when you refuse to forgive your fellow men. "But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. " (Mat 6:15, KJV)
 
Many years ago as a young pastor in the nineties, I was trying to pray for a lady to get her filled with the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues. Usually, the moment I pray, in less than five minutes, the person is already filled, but this particular lady took a long time.
 
She just stared at me and said she couldn't open her mouth. Eventually, the Holy Spirit showed me where the problem was. So, I asked her if she had people she had not forgiven and she said yes.
 
The moment I led her through forgiving those people, she bursted out speaking in other tongues.
 
3. Bitterness
Another hindrance is bitterness in your heart. It will render prayers ineffective. You cannot just afford to be bitter against man or God. Bitterness will end up corrupting your heart and will eventually waste your time.
 
You are better off letting go of hurts and bitterness. Bitterness will cut you off from God’s grace and cause God’s grace to fail. If you have been jilted or abandoned, you have to forgive, forget and move on.
 
"Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;" (Heb 12:15, KJV)
 
Bitterness is so intense that it shows on your face and in your attitudes. Stay away from it.
 
4. Unbelief
Unbelief will hinder answered prayers as well. "So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief." (Heb 3:19, KJV)
 
Unbelief hardens your heart and tells you God doesn't really answer prayers. No matter how many mountains you climb, how long you fast, how many pastors who said they are praying for you, if there is unbelief in your heart, prayers will not be answered.
 
How do you know if there is unbelief in your heart?
 
Your utterances will reveal your heart because out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
 
I know that God will not answer me.
 
I am not sure I will ever marry
 
Is marriage meant for me?
 
Why has God not answered since? If He likes, He should answer, if He doesn’t, I don’t care.
 
Those are just few instances. You see, your utterances and confessions are so powerful and they show the state of your heart.
 
5. When you pray amiss
Praying amiss means you are asking for a selfish intent. For example, you are praying that God should make a guy who is already in a relationship come to you.
 
Or you are praying that somebody who is already married should have his eyes opened to come to you. God will not answer such prayers! It will not work because God is not an author of confusion.
 
"Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts." (Jas 4:3, KJV)
 
I will stop here today.
 
CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I will put my body under. I am disciplined
 
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Pray that God will teach you to pray aright
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
"Let me tell you something: Every one of these careless words is going to come back to haunt you. There will be a time of Reckoning. Words are powerful; take them seriously." (Mat 12:36, MSG)
 
ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Pray today

Isaiah 59-63
