I recently asked a group of my guy (Christian) friends how they go about studying God’s Word together with their wives and if they pray together on a regular basis. So it seems that in general (or at least within the group that I run with), this is a huge area for improvement.
An arbitrary occasion that calls for genuine romance doesn't make sense from the beginning. Despite years of persistent resistance, Valentine’s Day is more powerful than your apathy and my apathy put together.
May we stand strong in our friendship like a tall oak tree.
May we pull together through the different seasons of our lives so that we become closer.
The second prayer is for those who have recently become engaged, which thanks God for His goodness in their lives. Your creativity bursts across the skies at sunset, it emerges from spring buds that bloom. Like three streams that merge into one single river, you are journeying with us.
Finally, there is a short prayer for those who have recently found love and romance. You are the creative, restoring current that runs through our relationship.
