It’s Day 10! Time to celebrate! But before you enter this challenge in the history books I want to encourage all of you to take one more step in intimacy together. Today, after your 10th day of sexual intimacy in a row I want to encourage you to take another spiritual step together.
Husbands, as you are holding each other today I want you to have the courage to pray out loud with and for your wife. Maybe that is something completely natural, but for many of you even the thought of praying out loud with her brings up that queasy feeling in the pit of your stomach. Can you feel it? That “ug, no I couldn’t do that” feeling? The reason it is there is because praying together is VERY intimate. I know for some of you this will take a risk but I encourage you to try! To give you a little head start here are a few things that you can pray for:
- For your allowing you and your wife to spend these special 10 days together (even if you didn’t make it all 10)
- For your marriage
- For your wife
- For guidance in applying the lessons you have both learned into your marriage.
- For strength as you continue to grow in intimacy together
- For your one flesh journey together
These are just ideas, just talk to God and let the Holy Spirit bind the two of you together through physical, emotional and spiritual intimacy!
