The Necessity to Pray for your Spouse

September 19, 2017

 “Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 

– 1 Peter 5:8



How far am I willing to go to fight spiritually for my family?

The spiritual war that is waging over every family is much more fierce and the stakes are infinitely higher than even the most brutal war in human history. If that is the case, are you willing to engage in the spiritual battle over your family? To what extent?

Katie Hartfiel discusses how she wrote the book Woman in Love for young women after she was convicted as a teenager to pray intensely for her “husband to be” before they had even met. Now, she explains how that fervent prayer must continue into married life!

Live It! Tip of the Week: Pray for your spouse every single day.  Consider it spiritual warfare. The battle ground is your family.

Next week, we will hear about a specific way that we can pray for our families.


St. Michael the Archangel
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness
and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
cast into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
