Before I go on to say what I want, if you know you are a husband in ‘here’ and you occasionally initiate FAMILY PRAYER, without necessarily waiting for your wife, then this article is not for you…but you can share with your friends who generally shy away from prayer.
Husbands, why are you so difficult? You mean to tell me that after all these years of your being married, you still do not know the value of prayer in marriage? Why do you find it difficult to, on your own, gather the family together for prayer? It is not only for the wife to do, sometimes, she needs to know that she’s not alone in this ‘battle’.
Some husbands not only do not initiate prayer, but love to dodge it! Why, for goodness sakes?! Without God, do you think you will be where you are? Have you really taken time out to really appreciate God’s presence in your life and in that of your family’s?!
There are some husbands, that the minute their wives wake them up for family devotion, it will look like that’s the worst crime the poor women have ever committed…meanwhile that is the normal time for ‘Morning Devotion’ O! #BigTimeConfusionists
Please, without flogging the issue, I would like love to urge the husbands in the house to be more spiritually inclined. Just because, you are the ‘financier’ of the home, does not mean you should take the back seat when it comes to spiritual matters.
Even those of you claiming or forming “Too busy”, please you can’t afford to be too busy for God. Is it not the same God that provided you that job, that contract, that ‘hustling platform’? Abeg!! A few minutes of your ‘glorious’ time is not too much to ask! Oo, Nna?
Join your wife in getting the family together for prayer…don’t leave her only to be doing it. Sometimes, she may need spiritual assistance. Doing it with her makes it even more interesting. Even in church matters, don’t be looking for ways to dodge it…you are not a baby please!
Thank you for sparing me your ‘ears’.
