It’s one of the most important aspects of being a Christian. It’s that conversation with your Maker, your Saviour. It’s one of the most intimate things. It’s the time you bare yourself to God, where you come before him, talk and listen.
On your own it is incredibly powerful and intimate. As a group it is incredibly powerful, but slightly less intimate. Sharing it with someone else it is incredibly powerful and intimate. Not only does it draw you closer to God, it draws the other person closer to God, but it also draws you closer to each other. Sharing a thing as powerful as talking to your creator with someone can only bring you closer together, such an experience so focused on God can bring you both together.
It can strengthen. It can strengthen your relationship with God. It can strengthen you. By letting God in, he can work in you, mould you and shape you, he can create you into the true person he made you to be. Prayer at the centre of your relationship can strengthen you both and the relationship. It can bring you both closer to God, individually and as a couple, it can also bring you closer together strengthening your relationship. Keeping you both aiming for the same thing, keeping you both aiming for and living for God. Sharing a moment like that with your maker and the person who God guided you to is the most initmate thing in the world. Sharing everything with your maker and that person is incredible. Knowing that God provided the other person for you and you for them is such a, well I can’t really find the words to describe it, but knowing he has a path for you both, individually and as a couple, well again I can’t find the words.
So prayer, the most intimate thing in the world.
