Today I have the awesome privilege of writing a guest post for a series called Biblical Women of Influence at Angel Penn‘s blog at www.angelpenn.com.
So Many Mary’s!
Can you imagine walking with Jesus when He lived on earth? I would have loved that! I should have been named Mary.
I could have been Mary, the mother of Jesus. Now there’s a woman who played no small part in Jesus’ life. She carried Him in her womb, gave birth to Him, nourished Him, and taught Him to walk and talk and use good manners. She probably taught Him to pray and instructed Him in the ways of God and told Him about the things God did for the children of Israel. She may have led Him to faith in God!
There’s no doubt that she had a great influence on the greatest Man who ever lived.
For instance, there’s the time that Mary insisted that Jesus do a miracle at the Wedding at Cana when they ran out of wine. That turned out to be a good thing – the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry.
She had a mother’s influence over her son. I’m sure she loved Him as no other. Her love probably gave Him strength and courage to endure all that He went through in His life. His mother had extravagant love for Him.

Why did God establish marriage in the first place? What’s it all about?
Find out what the Lord says about it.
The two shall become one.
In this scope we address:
-The problem of prayerlessness in the home
-Thinking of ourselves as one causes us to be nicer to each other
-Helping each other
-Do everything out of love
-It’s important to keep THIS right if you want to get your prayers answered
I have seen good results from praying this prayer for my husband.
I have been praying this prayer for my husband for many years. I have seen changes in his attitudes, thinking, and priorities. I am so thankful that God gave me this prayer so long ago. My husband is a real family man now! He really cares about what happens with our children. He wants to do his part in teaching them important principles and truths that will help them to live their lives in a successful way that fulfills God’s purpose for their lives. He is much more attentive and affectionate with me, too.
I want to know if any of you have prayed this prayer or a similar prayer or if you asked me to pray for your marriage – I would be grateful if you would share with us what God has done in your marriage and in your husband’s heart.
Please leave a comment and testify about what God has done for your marriage, so we can glorify and praise God together.
Thank you in advance!
