Mobilising, training and equipping Christians for prayer

Holidays often prove to be more challenging than relaxing for most families. Do you desire a fresh start in your relationship with your husband? Having devotion time as a couple can be as difficult in later years as it was easy in the beginning. Why not decide to pray for one another this year? You can start by praying separately. Ask the Lord to lead you and bring you closer to one another and closer in your relationship to Him, so that in time you can sit and pray together for one another.


Bless your husband and thank God for him!
