Nothing tends more to cement the hearts of Christians than praying out loud together. Never do they love each other so well as when they witness the outpouring of each other’s hearts in prayer.—Charles Finney

praying out loud

Do you pray together?

No, not in silence in the same room, but together out loud.

When working on your spiritual intimacy pillar, praying together is a strength builder.

There are many ways that you are strong in your spiritual intimacy. You…

  • Go to church together.
  • Tithe.
  • Serve together.
  • Listen to worship music together.
  • Pray for meals together.

But consistently praying out loud together will create a whole different dynamic in your marriage.

Learning to pray out loud and do so consistently with your spouse is another skill in your spiritual intimacy toolbox, but it is one that will have a tremendous impact.

Not only will you feel closer and more united, but you will find a deeper connection. You’ll be more powerful as a couple.

If this is a new idea for you, it is understandable that you may initially be uncomfortable, feel weird, or even feel awkward. When you pray aloud together, you are allowing your spouse to hear your most intimate and vulnerable thoughts, the ones that before you have only shared with God.

Take it slow and choose a day or time to start—it doesn’t have to be perfect, you just have to start. Then take turns. Do this in the same way that you take turns initiating sex so that it’s not just one person carrying all the wait. When you take turns leading prayer, alternatively, you can devise a formula that works for the two of you.
