|Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thes 5:11
In last week’s ePrayer we talked about new years resolution and inviting God into those. This week we wanted to get a bit more specific and look at new years resolutions for our relationship as a couple.
Perhaps as a couple you already take time to review the previous year – if not perhaps try it. Look through the calendar at dates you’ve had together. What dates did you love last year that you could plan in for this year? Perhaps talk about the highs & lows of the year. What have you learnt together as a couple? And what are your hopes & dreams for 2019? What are the pressure points that you know of for the year to come and what can you do to support each other around them? Have you planned in some time to intentionally invest in your relationship this year.
Spend some time talking through your diary for the year ahead – plan fun stuff and get prepared!
Prayer (as a couple)
Father, we ask your blessing on the year to come. Help us to grow closer to You and to each other. Amen
Prayer (for others)
As God to bring a couple specifically to your mind and pray God’s blessing on their marriage for the year ahead.
If it’s been a while since you attended a marriage enrichment course we would highly recommend a Time for Marriage Weekend or you can find other resources here.
