"Whether you've been married fifty years or fifty days, you need to read and apply the principles in this book."--Dennis Rainey, president and cofounder, FamilyLife
We know marriage is too hard to handle alone. But when we come to God for help, too often our prayers are lifeless and vague or even selfish. God wants more for you--in your prayer life and in your marriage.
Will Davis Jr. combines God's teachings on marriage with practical guidance on praying for your marriage using "pinpoint prayers" that are bold, direct, specific, and biblical. You will learn how to pray specific biblical verses for:
•emotional and spiritual intimacy in marriage
•your spouse's spiritual growth, even if he or she is an unbeliever
•protection from marriage temptations
•your marriage's purpose and mission
Each chapter includes suggestions for how you can "Pray Big Today," relevant Scripture verses, and prayers. A final section offers a 31-day prayer plan with verses and pinpoint prayers to help you get started. Pray Big for Your Marriage will challenge and inspire you to ask God to do big things in and through your marriage.
