We fireproof our homes. We make sure the stove is off and there are no piles of brush near the dwelling. We ensure the electrical wiring is good and we purchase fire retardant furnishings.

What about our marriage; can we take the same precautions? Sure we can. One of the greatest tools in fireproofing your marriage is the power of agreement. Right now, let’s focus on the power of agreement through prayer.

Here are 4 prayers to fireproof your marriage.  (Where you see a blank insert your mate’s name).

Forgive Quickly

Father, teach me to forgive quickly and to be slow to become offended. I know ___________________’s heart is for me and not against me. When I am offended, or upset, I will trust in you and I will cover _________________ in love. I fireproof my marriage by not letting the seed of unforgiveness take root. I won’t judge and act irrationally, but rely on you for understanding of this situation, so that I may see with your eyes and love with your heart.

Scripture: Ephesians 4:32; Colossians 3:13; Ephesians 4:26, Proverbs 3:5

Demonstrate Diehard Compassion

Since I am made in your image and likeness, I am full of mercy and compassion. _________________ receives the benefit of these gifts you have instilled in me. Just like you Lord, my mercies toward ___________________ are new every morn. My compassion toward ___________________ does not fail.  I fireproof my marriage with diehard compassion and your loving kindness.

Scripture: Matthew 5:7; Luke 6:31; Lamentations 3:23; Proverbs 15:1; 1Peter 3:8

Love First

Father, I will strive to be the first to demonstrate unconditional love in my marriage, in any situation. I will love ________________ with the fullness of your love. I am willing to go first. You set the example of enduring the cross because of the joy that was to come. I am willing to do this in my marriage. I step out on love that is patient and keeps no record of wrong. I love ___________________ demanding nothing in return, yet appreciate with gratitude every moment of joy and act of reciprocation that comes my way.  I fireproof my marriage with a love that goes first. A love that protects, hopes and perseveres.

Scripture: Matthew 7:12, John 3:16; 1Corinthains 13

Never Leave Your Partner Behind

________________ and I, together with you Father, we are as a three-strand cord that is not easily broken. We are strong, intertwined and united. You said in your word that we are to cling to one another. You said that two shall become one flesh. Since we are one, as we grow, we will grow together. As we walk, we will walk hand and hand.  I fireproof my marriage by making a commitment to you Lord and to _______________. Through good times and tough times, we are in this together. There will be no man left behind.

Scripture: Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; Mark 10:8; Ruth 1:16-17

Talking and listening to God through prayer is our two-way conversation to fireproof our marriage. These 4 short prayers serve as a safeguard; like a fire extinguisher for the home. They will extinguish the fiery darts that come our way. Because of fireproofing, challenges will not break us but cause growth, expand our faith and strengthen our love.

Happy fireproofing!

SINGLE LADIES: How to Position Yourself to Be Found

How do you find a good man?

That’s one of the most frequent questions that we hear from our single readers but that’s where the problem comes in.

Instead of looking for ways to find a good man you need to learn how to have a good man find you!

My good friend Natasha Miller has built a movement along with her husband Jamal called Married & Young that is encouraging and equipping single women that want to be married to Godly men.

On Monday, March 20th at 9PM ET she’ll be joined by Kamilah Stevenson and Monica Van Deneede as they break down How to Position Yourself to be Found!

How to Position Yourself to Be Found

On this special training they’ll share how they positioned themselves to be found by their Godly husbands for single women of faith that desire to do the same.

On this training you’ll learn:

  • The difference between being OPEN and compromising.
  • Learn how to position yourself to be recognized by a Godly man.
  • Discover what area of your life may be the reason you keep drawing Mr. Wrong.
  • What to do when you are interested in someone, but not sure if he is interested in you.

This is going to be so powerful that we wanted to share it with our audience because even if you’re not single you have some single friends that need to be on this free online training.

On the same training last Thursday over 10,000 people registered but due to technical limitations only 3,000 people were able to join so it filled up in less than 5 minutes!

This is what they saw…

How to Position Yourself to be Found

That’s why they’ve added this special follow-up training but I know it’s going to fill up again so make sure you register now and join at least 15-20 minutes early that night.

Don’t miss it! This is going to be special! See you Monday night on the training!
