INTERCESSORY PARTNERS

You are welcome to this week’s edition of Marriage Management Matters (3M) on Tectono Business Review. This week, we are discussing the importance of husband and wife interceding for each other. From our continuous interaction with married couples across tribes, language, races, colour and ethnicity, it is very surprising to notice that many married couples do not intercede for each other in the time of challenges.

During one of our intervention sessions, one of our counselors was involved in mediating between a man who is not staying together with his wife of about five years of marriage that produced two beautiful daughters. It is important to know that the man in question is reverence as a man of God within the community.

So, 3M senior counselor asked him the last time he prayed for his wife and the man replied, “Why pray for her? Is she a baby? Can’t she pray for herself?” The counselor tried to get the level of love in the marriage and discovered the man to be too difficult to have forgiving spirit and still holds on to the past.

A better example of how important intercessory prayer is for married couples is recorded in Exodus 17:11, “And so it was when Moses held up his hand that Israel prevailed and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.” At this juncture, it is very important to sing it that Satan is the greatest enemy of married couples. Satan is always busy working tirelessly to scatter marriages that the Lord has put together.

The bible verse above which mentioned that that when Moses withdrew his hand, the opponent prevailed is a classical example what is being seen in homes where partners do not pray for each other during cases of difficult situations.

What is it that your partner is facing today? Remember that the Lord said in Psalm 2:8, “Ask of me and I will give you the nation of your inheritance and the end of the earth for your possession.” So, be informed again that the opponent will not wait for you to inherit the promise of the Lord concerning your marriage and the possession of the earth just like that. Therefore, be aware that the battle is on. Keep praying for your spouse so that together, you shall be victorious.
