How to fight for your marriage with God


How to Fight for your Marriage with God

The following steps are a quick guide on how to fight for your marriage with God:
1. Identify the cause of your fights
The following are some of the most common causes of fights in marriages:
a. Money problems
b. Intimacy problems
c. In-law problems

2. Identify Scriptures that address your problem
The Word of God is the sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17) and it therefore the best weapon for fighting the problems in your marriage in prayer. 
a. Money issues 
Heavenly Father we ask you in the name of Jesus to open up a way for us to make money so that we can provide for the needs of our household. (1 Timothy 5:8

b. Intimacy issues
Heavenly Father we ask you in the name of Jesus to help us solve these intimacy problems so that we can be joined together and become one flesh . (Ephesians 5:31)

c. In-law issues
Heavenly Father we ask you in the name of Jesus to help us solve these problems we have with our in-laws because it is written that a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined with his wife. (Ephesians 5:31)

In addition find more Scriptures that address your marital problems and use them for your meditation and to confess over your marriage. 

3. Treat your spouse as if God lives with you
Treat your spouse as if God lives with you by doing what God would expect you to do even if your spouse is treating you badly.

To be able to do this adopt the mindset that you are fighting for your marriage and not fighting against your husband/wife.

Therefore, even if words seem to have failed, fight for your marriage with your conduct for the Bible tells us, Wives, submit to your husbands so that even if some of them do not obey the Word, they will be won over by your conduct even if you do not speak a word. (1 Peter 3:1) Though this Bible verse is addressing women, I believe that men can also use  their conduct to fight for their marriage by treating their wives as God expects them to even if their wives are not obeying God's word. 

4. Seek Christian counseling
Seek professional help from a Christian counselor and attend the counseling sessions even if your spouse will not go.

5. Having done all, stand.
After you have done everything that you can do spiritually and physically for your marriage, continue mentally standing on Bible verses like What God has joined together let no one separate (Matthew 19:6) and God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16) as you wait for God to do for you what you cannot do for yourself. 
What God has joined together let no one separate. (Matthew 19:6)
