#1 – Pray for each other the next 30+ days.

(1 Thessalonians 5:16-19, NKJV; Galatians 5:22-23, NKJV)

We need to be thanking God and rejoicing for our marriages.When we quench the Holy Spirit, it reduces the love, joy, and peace we have in our marriages. The very things we need in our marriages is quenched by not praying and giving thanks. This will not just happen; we have to be intentional.

FIRST CHALLENGE
Pray and give thanks for your mate for the next 30 days.

#2 – Forgive before asked.

(Ephesians 4:26-27, NKJV; Romans 12:17-19, NKJV)

When we don’t forgive, we are giving place to the devil in our marriage. When we give place to the devil, we will start thinking negative thoughts.

#3 – Don’t make any personal decisions while fighting and upset.

(Jeremiah 17:9-10, NKJV)

#4 – Make a list of the good qualities of your mate while not upset. When you are upset, read them.

(Philippians 4:8-9, NKJV, NCV)

#5 – Read the true definition of love.

(1 Corinthians 13:4-8, NCV, NLT2)
