Song of Songs 8:6 *Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm. For love is as strong as death, its jealousy as enduring as the grave. Love flashes like fire, the brightest kind of flame* ( NLT).

My first time on the prayer mountain cannot be forgotten in a hurry. After Youth Service, I retreated to a prayer mountain for men only in one of the south western states.  During one of the prayer sessions, the leader asked to know married men who were on the mountain to pray about their wives. Over 80% of the married men in attendance raised their hands. Some of them were there to pray about their marriages.

In subsequent meetings on the mountain, I discovered a lot of men go to the mountain to pray about their failing/ failed marriages. I never knew it was a major prayer point for some not until I met a man, a prophet, whose wife was pregnant with their third child and was praying she dies with that pregnancy as I was told by one of his allies. That’s witchcraft.

I interacted with a few men and I concluded their marital problems won’t be solved by prayer alone except they follow godly principles that govern marriage. Some men are mean. How do you expect a physically battered woman whose faces get swollen from blows and slaps to be submissive and loving? No matter how hard such men pray, their marriages won’t work. *If you are not loving her as Christ loved the church, forget marital bliss in your marriage even if you speak with tongues of fire*.

*Oftentimes, what we sow into our marriages is what we get in return. No magic about marital bliss neither is it a miracle. A good marriage is consciously worked out by following godly biblical principles*.

Same applies to some women who want a miracle of marital bliss by attending all prayer meetings yet flout principles. Some are experts in verbal abuse and nagging. They’ve always desired to experience the dream marriages they read about but they forget that a happy and blissful marriage doesn’t fall on anyone like ripe cherry.

*If prayer alone makes marriage work, all prayer warriors would have the best of homes*. There are prayer warriors with terrible marriages. That is not to downplay prayer in anyway because nothing is wrong with the art of prayer but many things could be wrong with the attitude of those in the place of prayer. Not wanting to take responsibility for your marriage by doing all that is expected of you but pushing all to God in prayer is the  height of irresponsibility I have seen among some believers in my few days of sojourn here.

When Paul taught about marriage, he did not say, “Go to the mountain and ask for a blissful home”. He simply  taught two powerful principles that encapsulates all other things required to make marriage work. They are the principles of Love & Submission.

Ephesians 5:22 NLT‬‬

[22] *For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord*

[25] *For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her*.
We’ll find rest in our marriages If we practice these biblical principles.

*ACTION*: Beware of actions inimical to the health of your marriage.
