THE DANGERS OF POWER FAILURE IN MARRIAGE
Everything was going on well in the program. Bright light, delicious food, well-decorated hall, beautifully dressed Ladies, handsome Gentlemen, nice music. I tell you, it was a wonderful place to be at that time of the day. After cracking some jokes, the MC announced to the delight of everyone, the presence of the newest Bride and Groom, urging us to stand up to welcome them as they danced in.
The music band immediately changed the song to a danceable one and the Bridal train filed in their number. They were about twenty elegantly dressed Ladies, dancing alongside the Bride and Groom in their glory. Then suddenly, everything went off. The music stopped as the light went off. Everywhere became dark. The once appreciable brightness became darkness.
“Oh Power failure!” Somebody exclaimed.
“There is no provision for a stand-by power generator”, another person added. It was really frustrating.
This occurrence immediately brought to an end to the party. Everything was available but power was lacking. Beauty got lost, the food got wasted; the music stopped. Nothing mattered to anyone anymore since there was a power failure. The once delightsome atmosphere became stuffy and not conducive to dwell in, so everyone left the hall for their own good.
This is the situation of many Families today. Many Families are currently experiencing power failure. There is a lot of fighting, pain and quarrel among many couples today. These strange happenings can be traced to the break in power transmission in that home.
When you lose power as a couple, trouble sets into your home, which in turn can lead to separation or even divorce. There are too many dangers of not praying in a home. Not praying can lead to power failure in your beautiful love life. Below are some dangers attached to a failed prayer life.
- The enemies will sow evil seeds in the Family Garden.
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
Matthew 13:25 KJV
- Loss of spiritual power.
The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands. Psalms 76:5 KJV
- Constant fighting in the home.
- Presence of demonic afflictions.
- Offences grow, misunderstanding becomes huge.
- Lack of progress.
- Wayward Children.
- Stubborn Wife.
- Difficult Husband and many more…
The price to pay for power failure in a home is huge, that is why we must take our time to rekindle our prayer life. If there is anything to pray for in a Family, it is the spiritual health of the home, the prayer life and the lifestyle of Godliness. A praying home is a home void of troubles. A praying home is a home void of affliction. A praying home is a home where God abides.
