During times of tragedy, it is easier to remember to pray for and be grateful for your spouse’s safety, job, health, relationships, and good will. As tragedy has a unique way of highlighting not only the sufferings but also the blessings as there seems to be no shortage of extremes. Yet it is much harder to be consistent with prayer for your spouse during the good times; after all, your spouse may not seem as much in need as others. But these moments are precisely the times when prayer is most needed, when it is least expected because you never know when tragedy will strike. Pray for wisdom in decision making, discernment in associations, solid friendships, strength to endure trials, patience in work, keen focus, and understanding heart. Praying for your spouse is not about praying that your spouse agrees with you on a decision rather it is about praying for character traits and asking for protection realizing that in the end God is in control even during a tragedy.
