31 Days of Prayer for your Spouse {Day 21 :: Cooperation}


“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

  Just the other day, I suffered from yet another migraine headache. Unable to get up and make meals for my family or do the necessary chores that needed to get done – my husband took over my role and everyone survived just fine. I fell down and he was right there to step up and fill the need. Although I pride myself on being an independent sort of woman, it is so comforting to know I have a partner for raising this family, facing life and being able to share moments in joy and sorrow.  And even then, we two are not alone in our marriage; there has been a third partner all along. “A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”  As Dr. Tim Kimmel explained in “Grace Filled Marriage,”  a marriage is like braided hair.  Visually it appears to only be two pieces, but there are actually three parts weaved together. Today, no matter what you face, remember that you have someone here backing you up and ready to pick you up if you fall or keep you warm on a cold night. Remember that Jesus is always with you, always loving you, always watching out for you, always forgiving you. You are never alone. Pray that your spouse feels secure in your cooperation within your marriage and feels God’s grace weaved into it.   31 Days of Prayer for your Spouse
