Comfort one Another in Love

When was the last time you asked your spouse to share with you how you can be praying for him or her? Ask your spouse to share openly and honestly with you about their dreams, their goals, their frustrations and anything that is burdening them, so that you can come alongside them with the same heart in prayer. It will also be a way that you can bring comfort and compassion to them with any struggles they are facing. Be a safe place for them to share what is troubling them.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. ~ 2 Corinthians 1:3-5

After your spouse shares with you, take their hand in yours and pray out loud together. This will be a beautiful demonstration of the oneness and intimacy God wants couples to experience in marriage.
