Praying With Your Wife

First Peter 3:7 says,” Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them [wives] according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered” (emphasis mine).

The word “dwell” literally means “to make a home with” your wife. I don’t mean “home” in the strict sense of four walls and a foundation. That’s too obvious. This word “dwell” speaks of intimacy.

Do you know what intimacy is? It is letting somebody else into your life. In every marriage, there needs to be verbal, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual togetherness.

When you pray with your wife, you are saying to her, You are a part of my spiritual life. God is not just my God and your God. God is our God.”

That’s spiritual intimacy. Women greatly desire and deserve a husband that will pray with her.
