Someone once said, "A marriage that prays together stays together." Is that a pious phrase or deep, significant truth? I think it's deep significant truth. In fact, studies done at major universities all over the United States find that a couple that prays, worships and studies sacred Scripture together has a divorce rate of 1 out of over 3,000! That’s an amazing statistic.
Why is this true? Whether we want to admit it or not, every single one of us is a spiritual creature. Deep within, we have an eternal, spiritual nature that yearns for something higher in our lives. When we cement our spirits with our spouse's spirit, we form an irrevocable bond between us. It simply cannot be broken.
The Bible says, "What God has joined together, no person can ever separate." When God, who is perfect Spirit, enjoins a man and woman's spirit together through prayer and worship, there's not another flesh and blood person who can ever tear it apart. They literally become one person, one flesh, forever joined together.
You want a marriage tip that will allow your marriage to last forever? Try this one: pray together. It's not a trite phrase but an eternal truth: couples that pray together, stay together!!
