When we must work together in unity…

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!” –Psalms 133:1

Having unity is what keeps a marriage together, and that is what God wants. It is His will that husband and wife be in unity and that you speak the same language and be on the same page, for then you are fulfilling the purpose for which He joined you together.

Pray that you and your spouse will be in unity with regard to your goals, attitudes, intentions, methods and actions. Jesus said, “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.” (Matthew 18:19).

Pray that you and your spouse will agree on what you are praying about and wanting. When you do, you will see powerful answers to your prayers. Nothing will stand in your way when the two of you are united in God’s purpose for your lives.

Prayer to God, “Lord, I pray You help my spouse and me to always be on the same page and speak the same language. When there are times we are not communicating well – where we seem to be missing each other’s intentions, or we too often misunderstand each other’s words – I pray Your perfect wisdom and knowledge would prevail between us. By the power of Your Spirit, I pray You would enable us to always have a clear understanding of each other and whatever situation we are in. Help us to resist the enemy – the author of confusion, lies and deceit – and refuse to give place to any of his plans for our relationship as husband and wife. I pray that only You, Lord, will reign in our marriage, and that only Your Spirit of love and peace will rule between us.

You have said in Your Word that there isn’t anything people cannot do when they are in unity (Genesis 11:6). I pray our unity means there is nothing we cannot do to make our marriage strong, and there is nothing the enemy can do to come between us. Enable us to pray together in unity so that we will see powerful answers to prayer, and that nothing of Your goodness and blessing will be withheld from our lives.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
