Perfect Pairings: Couples Who Pray

That's Baloney
Today I am joining That's Baloney on her Sunday Perfect Pairings.  It is where you pick a bible verse to pair with a photo you own.  I am going to place mine with a book I am currently studying. 

So for my perfect pairing I have picked the verses on love from 1 Corinthians to place with my favorite photo of Dear Hubby and I taken on our honeymoon trip.  This will go perfect with our goal we have set too!
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (New International Version)

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

I chose Couples Who Pray to review from BookSneeze and received a free copy for doing so.  This was because Dear Hubby and I have wanted to strengthen our prayers together.  As can happen so easily we have let our religious beliefs become more and more private.  Now we feel it is important to make a point to pray together.  It is a slow process...and I don't know why it is for us.  Other than it is a very intimate part of our lives, prayer.  But we are starting off praying once a week together.  We are also adding in bible study time too.  This is with the aid of a wonderful bible that our son provided for us.  Set up just for couples to study with.  My thanks to Lil J!  I know it says:

Matthew 18:19-20 (New International Version)

19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two . . . gather in my name, there am I with them.”

I love that there is a 40 day challenge to help a couple strengthen this aspect of their lives.  And since I am one who learns best studying the question guide in the back of this book is a wonderful help to me.  I am sure it will help spurn some great eye opening conversations with Dear Hubby and I.  I want to leave you with one more item from Couples Who Pray.

Remember the acronym for remembering Six Steps to a Happy Marriage:
