Christian Couple
A powerful weapon to defend your marriage against divorce and build intimacy in your relationship as husband and wife is prayer—both praying together as a couple and praying individually for your spouse.

In a devotional workbook titled, What's in the Bible for Couples, Christian marriage expert Gary Chapman contributed these thoughts: "The English word for intimacy comes from the Latin word intimus, meaning 'inner.' Thus intimacy involves two people opening their inner selves to each other. It is entering into each other's lives emotionally, intellectually, socially, physically and spiritually. It is connecting at the deepest possible level in every area of life. Intimacy is accompanied by a sense of love and trust."

A few years ago, my husband and I made a commitment to begin reading the Bible and praying together in the morning. It took us 2.5 years to read through the entire Bible, but it was one of the most tremendous marriage-building experiences we've ever shared. Praying together not only brought us closer to each other, it deeply reinforced our bond with the Lord.

If you're unsure how to get started praying together, here are a few Christian prayers for married couples to help you take the first step:
