Have you ever wished your husband would pray for or with you? I have.

Have you tried to get him to take more of a leadership role in spiritual matters? I have.

Do you wonder if there is something you can do to encourage him to pray with you and the children? I do.

How can you get your husband to pray with you?

Well, you can ask. But, if that doesn’t work, I don’t recommend badgering him until he gets mad, or begrudgingly says a prayer that isn’t heartfelt or sincere.

Instead, consider this as one of the areas that must be won without words.

The best way to get your husband to pray with you — is to pray for him — effectually and fervently! (James 5:16) (And with your eyes wide open!)
