Lenten "Love Dare" ~ Day 15 & 16

I will be away from the computer for the next few days. I have posted both Friday and Saturday's "Love Dare".

My son is home from college and we will be preparing for him to get his wisdom teeth out on Monday. Prayers are appreciated. I hope the "Love Dare" is bearing fruit for you and your families. I know that it is in mine.

Day 15

"Love Is Honorable"

"Live with your wives in an understanding way...and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life."
~ 1 Peter 3:7

Today's Dare:
"Choose a way to show honor and respect to your spouse that is above your normal routine. It may be holding the door open for her. It might be putting his clothes away for him. It may be the way you listen and speak in your communication. Show your mate that he or she is highly esteemed in your eyes."

Day 16

"Love Intercedes"

"Beloved, I pray that in all aspects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers."
~ 3 John 2

" Prayer really does work. It's a spiritual phenomenon created by an unlimited, powerful God. And it yields amazing results. Do you feel like giving up in your marriage? Jesus said to pray instead of quitting (Luke 18:1). Are you stressed out and worried/ Prayer can bring peace to your storms (Phil 4:6-7) Do you need a major breakthrough? Prayer can make the difference (Acts 12:1-7)"

Today's Dare:
Begin praying today for your spouse's heart. Pray for three specific areas where your desire for God to work in your spouse's life and in your marriage."
