Wise men and women are always learning, always listening for fresh insights.  Proverbs 18:15 MES


Whether you have been married one or fifty-one years are you still teachable?

My wife and I have been married for 51 years and have done many marriage weekends, courses and other marriage events but still each time we find new things that we can learn together. It is all about attitude, it’s the hunger to discover and grow.

Are you open to learn from your husband or wife or perhaps another couple you trust? It is only as we remain teachable will we keep growing and continue to make an impact.

Prayer (as a couple)

Father, keep us teachable no matter how long we have been married, may we never be closed to new ideas especially from each other. Help us to be attentive and listen to each other. Teach us how to learn, unlearn and relearn. Amen

Prayer (for others)

Father, _____ and _____ seem to be finding it difficult to listen to each other, always appearing to want to give advice. Help them to be open to each other’s thoughts, ideas and suggestions. Amen
