Uncommon Steps To Uncommon Marriage – Part 2
- TOGETHERNESS: Togetherness means that you and your spouse have been joined together to form a single entity. You can’t arrive at this point accidentally; you have to work it out by lots of coordinated activities like eating together, sleeping on the same bed in the same room, putting on the same clothes, praying together, going to church together, playing, strolling – activities that build and strengthen intimacies in marriage. They make you become inseparable (Colossians 3:14).
- PRAYER IS THE KEY: Prayer plays a strategic role in the making of a successful home. Many forces may militate against your marriage; you will need prayers to stop them. Create time to pray together for your love life, attitude, emotions, unity, pregnancy and delivery; your job, ministry, children and many more.
For more on family prayers, get copies of my books: My Family Must Prosper, My Husband Must Prosper, Parenting by Fire and My Children Must Prosper (Ephesians 5: 16).
- PLAYFULNESS: The home is not a silent grave yard where no noise is allowed. Put on your childhood instincts; play with your spouse and children and make merry. Don’t let your home wear a gloomy look like a grave yard. Playing together will keep you closely knitted (Song of Solomon 7: 11).
- SEXUAL FULFILLMENT: In a successful marriage, sexual fulfillment is not negotiable. Give quality sex a chance in your marriage; avoid sexual denial and don’t use sex as a weapon or trade by barter. To get to the level of sexual fulfillment, there must be sexual communication. Ask your spouse: how can I satisfy you sexually and be prepared to improve? Make up your mind to satisfy the sexual desire of your spouse (1 Corinthians 7: 5).
