1 Peter 3:5-7

For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.

Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.

One response to “1 Peter 3:5-7

  1. They way that we relate and deal with our spouses can hinder our prayer lives. This is an interesting thought. It is tough to be consistent in praying with your spouse, certainly tougher if you are fighting. Wives are charged to support and to submit and husbands are charged to respect and treat the wives as partners. We are not to give in to fear and we are to leverage our partnership that God has given to us to serve and to affect.
