Can praying together hold a marriage together? Perhaps.
It seem that most incarcerated teens are from single-parent homes—but not all. One night a 17-year-old was grieving over disappointing his parents by getting into trouble.
“They are good parents. They have been married 19 years and this is the worst thing that’s ever happened to them. Sometimes they argue, but they love God. They pray together every night—I think that’s why they’re still married.”
He’s probably right about that.
- And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:9-11
