40 Day Challenge - Draw Closer to God & Your Hubby (Day 28: Dealing with Marital Conflict)

As I've said over and over against these last few days, drawing closer to God, and submitting to His plan in your life, means pulling away from the world. If you truly submit to God's will for wives according to Scripture, life seriously becomes drama and worry free... because we learn to give every thing to Him.... 

Day 28
... including marital conflicts. Today I'm going to challenge you to dedicate yourself to praying with every conflict. If you struggle to find the words, refer to this prayer: 

Heavenly Father, 

Home is supposed to be a refuge from the storms of life, but right now conflict is brewing in ours. Father, minister to each of our hearts and bring us to a place of forgiveness, cooperation, and unity. Help us to communicate clearly to one another, to avoid misunderstanding, to overlook offenses, and to resolve our differences. As we begin to work together as a team, shower Your blessings upon us so that our family will shine brightly for you. 

In Jesus’ Name, 

Your husband may or may not join you, but when you feel conflict brewing, stop and pray. Ask for guidance, that He gives you patience, kindness, self-control, and that you learn to submit to your husband just as you submit to Christ. Read Proverbs 15:1, write it down, and apply that piece of wisdom to every conflict you have with your husband in the near future.

If you just joined us I encourage you to start with day 1, if you couldn't already tell, there's a reason for the order...
