Join Me In This Challenge - 31 Days to Pray for Your Spouse

Do you have about 5 minutes a day to spend praying for your spouse? Did you know that doing so each day over the course of 31 days can improve your marriage?!?

I'm joining hundreds of other spouses in the 31 Days to Pray for your Spouse Challenge.  This is taken from the book 31 DAY TO BUILD A BETTER SPOUSE by Ashley Pichea that I reviewed HERE.  The challenge runs from June 4 - July 5, 2012.  

From the introduction:

Building a better spouse isn’t easy. It takes a lot of work. And a lot of faith.
And, honestly, you can’t do it.
Only through the work of the Holy Spirit in your spouse’s life will he change. But, just because you can’t force change doesn’t mean that you can’t play a role in that change. You have the ability to build up your spouse through the power of prayer.
Prayer is one of the greatest privileges we have as believers. Having the ability to access the throne of grace with confidence whenever we have a need or want to offer up praise – what an incredible blessing we have!
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. {Hebrews 4.16}
Prayer is the means through which we are changed in our own lives, and it is the means through which we see change in the lives of others. It is through prayer that you can have the power to change your spouse. But, beware – through prayer, you too, will experience change!

Really, you can not go wrong joining me in this challenge.  I have done it myself while reading the book and I am feeling the urge to do it again.  My husband didn't even know I was doing it the first time.  But, this time he will because he reads my blog. :)

If you decide to join me, leave me a comment below.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.
