Scripture for dating couples
For a long time we only prayed the Lord’s Prayer out loud together.
This was safe because we both knew the words to it.
Some who date only much older people may be seeking a parental figure more than a romantic partner.
They may be insecure about finances and because of that want to be with someone established in his or her career.
Over time, and as each of us felt more comfortable being emotionally and spiritually naked with each other, we began to talk out loud to God as if he was the third person in our relationship. It’s no longer awkward, and it has promoted spiritual intimacy.
That was an unexpected bonus of being married to each other.
It’s one thing to say to your spouse, “I’ll pray for your presentation today,” as you grab your coffee and run out the door to work.It’s another thing to grab your husband by the hand and say, “Let me pray with you before you go.” Jesus promises us that whenever two or three come together in his name, he will also be there (see Matthew ).
