Read & Reflect

So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 5:`15-18 (NLT)

How does this scripture apply to your marriage? Reflect on this when you and your spouse come together for prayer.

Pray Together

Lord, it is clear that we cannot think right or understand Your will without the Holy Spirit in our relationship. Empty us of selfishness so we can be filled with Your Spirit. Then teach us how to live wisely and not like fools. Amen.
