I am hardly what anyone would call a model husband or Christian. Still, because I am married, and because I pray, if only poorly, I contemplate what it means to be a husband who prays.
When we think of Adam, we immediately think of Eve. Why?
God made man incomplete. He made woman because without her man could not be whole, and this is what Adam discovered when he knew Eve. Hence, the Apostle Paul wrote:
How do we know we are fallen creatures? Even though woman was made for man to love and man was made to love a woman, we flounder, muddle, stumble, and stagger in our relationships. To make our marriages work as our Lord intended, we need wisdom and grace that only our Lord can give us. So, it is that when a man prays, if he does not pray for his lady, has not truly prayed for himself.
In The Beginning Man Tried Ascending To Heaven via The Tower Of Babel. Now He Tries To Elevate His Existence To A Heavenly State of Consciousness Thru The Use Of Hallucinogenic Drugs. And, Since The 20th Century, He Continually Voyages Into Outer Space Using Spacecrafts. Prayer Thru Christ Is The Only Way To Reach Heaven.
WHENEVER ANY FORM OF GOVERNMENT BECOMES DESTRUCTIVE OF THESE ENDS (LIFE,LIBERTY,AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS) IT IS THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ALTER OR ABOLISH IT, AND TO INSTITUTE A NEW GOVERNMENT― Thomas Jefferson
There is so much sadness and hopelessness in our world we all experience in life. I feel so sorry for those who have never been taught to pray during both happy and sad times in life.
Some fall into alcohol and drugs which only helps for a short time.
Prayer is a blessing for both those who pray and those who they pray for.
Regards and goodwill blogging.
I like this a lot Tom. Husbands should pray for their wives and wives shound pray for their husbands, There would sure be a lot less divorce if everyone did thus.
But what about the size of the fig leaf?
That is Chapter 3 of Genesis. Before the fall, Adam and Eve had no shame. After the fall, …. Well, God was kind, fortunately. But He still has not allowed us back in Paradise.
One leaf was not enough.
Had not God created the fig leaf they both would have had some s’plaining to do.
It is ever since man tried to be God that we have had a lot of explaining to do.
