"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you." Matthew 7:7
Do you think your marriage has a prayer?
If that is all it has maybe that is exactly what it needs.
Have you ever tried to file a complaint about an incorrect bill or an inadequate service? If you are not careful you will end up admonishing a person who is too low on the chain of authority to satisfy your complaint. Unless you can get all the way to the top, your pleas will go unheeded, you will create ill will and you will become frustrated.
That has happened to me and I'll bet it has happened to you.
As I described that scenario it occured to me that it sounds a lot like some marriages. Have you ever nagged your spouse or been critital toward them? How did that work out for you?
If you want positive results you must "complain" to the right person.
That is our challenge today. When you have a problem with your spouse, take it to the top! Pray for them. Get God involved in their need. Ask Him to help your attitude first, then ask Him to graciously deal with your partner. I have found that many times after God adjusts my attitude, the problem either gets perspective or gets solved.
Have you prayed for your spouse today? Have you prayed with your spouse? Will you?
Go to the top before you hit bottom.
