Marriage, Prayer and the Cross
Many of the current readers are attending the re-taped version of That Man is You, Light to the Nations (Year 2). It promises to be heavy on the married life. Related to that, here is a series of articles that, while discussing struggling marriages quite a bit, fit in beautifully with many of the topics addressed at the beginning of this TMIY year.
Marriage requires ardent prayer, prayer in which we allow Him to question us and in which we consider His answers anew. This goes beyond methods of therapeutic meditation. It is deeper than the effort to relax tension and manage anxiety. It is not about surviving – it is about living life to the full. It is a heart-to-heart, living encounter. This kind of prayer requires that we pass beyond “self” and enter into a vulnerable silence in which we are completely open to the delicate touch of God.
