Can prayers make your marriage work?
It can but not in the way you expect.
Most of you never know the real way to pray for your marriage, do you?
You want a miracle. You want God to make your relationship issues disappear like a magic.
You are wrong.
God is not there to live your married life. You have to live it.
Do you also feel prayers can make your marriage successful instantly?
Prayers will never do that.
You have to make your marriage successful.
Prayers will help you morally, nothing else.
Prayers make your marriage work magically – It is your life-line
It gives you hope that you will overcome your relationship problems.

There was a period in my married life when we experienced the worst financial drubbing ever. The interest we had to pay for the money we had borrowed was much higher than our income.
Our day to day existence was by itself an uphill task. I cringed with fear whenever the telephone bell rang.
It was invariably some loan shark reminding us of the pending interest. I shudder to think of those nightmarish days even now.
The world closed its door on us as we did not have money.
Do you know what helped us through those dark days of tears and crushing fear?
It was our faith in God!
He made us join hands to feel the warmth of loving and supporting togetherness. He made us understand how much we meant for each other.
Prayers make your marriage work by giving you the strength and courage to withstand the turmoil you face in your married life.
‘There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers.’ Saint Teresa of Avila

Contemporary world is very demanding and very mercenary which make modern marriages fail miserably.

But God smiles otherwise.
He gives you relationship problems to make you understand that you need the support of each other.

A new beginning awaits your relationship.
This is the way of God.

Prayers gives you all these.
God is the supreme doctor for all your relationship problems.
He is the savior of your marriage.
Most of you think of God only when your marriage totters towards failure.
Thank God for the blessings he has showered on your married life.
