When we asked the wives of the Dad Tired community what they thought was one of the best ways a husband can be the spiritual leader of their home, without question, the number one answer was "To pray with us". Wives desperately want their husbands to lead them and their kids in prayer. The truth is, however, most guys don't pray with their wife and kids. Some feel awkward, some have no idea how, and some are fearful of what their wife might want to pray about; worried that it could lead to bringing up issues they've been trying to push under the rug. In this episode, join host Jerrad Lopes as he addresses the likely reason you aren't praying with your family, and more importantly, what it would look like to practically step up in this way. As a bonus, make sure to stick around to the very end of the episode where Jerrad addresses specific questions about prayer from the Dad Tired community.
Have you ever met a married couple who was in the thick of an argument or crisis, and when asked how it all began, they say something to the effect of, "He always leaves his laundry on the floor!" or "All she does is nag me about the dumbest things!"
We're addicted to instant. When it comes to just about everything: the faster, the better. We want our food quickly, our results instant, and our dreams now.
Most Christian couples say that they place a high value on "Spiritual Intimacy". Meaning, they want to be connected with their spouse when it comes to spiritual things. They have a high desire to go to church together, pray together, read the Bible together, and talk about God together.
