How to Pray for Your Spouse (Colossians 1:3-12)Pastor Justin Pratt, February 21, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Tonight we had some of our folks who attended our Marriage Retreat share testimonies about some of the things they learned and that God showed them this past weekend.
We had a wonderful weekend with Bro. Scott Pauley (www.scottpauley.org) with lots of fun and laughs. But most importantly, Bro. Scott brought some of the be preaching on marriage and the family that you will ever hear. He showed us that that Eden Is Not Enough (Friday night session), that having A Thankful Heart is the beginning of a Spirit Filled Home (Saturday first session), and seven specific topics on How to Pray for Your Spouse (Saturday second session).
Bro. Justin also quickly shared the seven things that we should be praying for our spouse. This is just a brief glimpse of some of the amazing Biblical truths we received!

3We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, 4Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, 5For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; 6Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth: 7As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ; 8Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit. 9For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; 12Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: (KJV)
