Read About How God Worked Through the Oneness Prayer Challenge
At FamilyLife, we are praising God for His work through the Oneness Prayer Challenge. And we want to celebrate with you by sharing some stories from fellow “Challenge-takers”:
Thank you for the opportunity to pray with my husband. We have been married for 42 years and loved Jesus for 38 of those years. For whatever reason, we have not been able to pray together in all those years. When I asked my husband if he would like to take the challenge, he said yes! The challenge did one very special thing in both of us. We began to see things as one, the way God designed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
This has been an awesome experience. My husband never wanted to pray with me before but he agreed to try the challenge. We have been faithful in praying together every night—even when we were on vacation for two weeks. He was amazed at how good he has become at speaking to our Lord in prayer. It has been such a rewarding experience. We have laughed together, I have wept with him, and we have grown closer together. We have decided to continue this time together every night after supper when this challenge is over. God has been so good to us anyway, by giving us the gifts of peace and contentment and we are so happy together.
Thank you for inviting us to take this challenge. It has been a very worthwhile time and God has blessed us both immensely by spending time with Him as a couple.
Thank you for providing the couple’s prayer prompts. My husband and I enjoyed those prayer times so much that we want to go through them again. Also, I was able to influence my brother and his wife to take the prayer challenge, which was a spiritual breakthrough for them! Thank you again for launching the prayer challenge.
Thank you so much for encouraging us to pray together. It has drawn us closer in several ways. I’ve heard it said that you know you are doing something right when the devil steps up to try to prevent it. It has been a battle worth fighting and we know the Lord’s strength will see us through many years of praying together and standing in the gap for one another and other warriors, too. Thank you and God bless.
We have completed the 30-day prayer challenge and we have been truly blessed and challenged to keep the fire burning in our marriage. One of the lessons we learned during this process is the importance of finding time together since more often than not we get too caught up with our work and children.
Please join us in praising God for these changed lives and many more!
