A PRAYER PLAN FOR COUPLES
118.15 speaks of shouts of joy and victory in the tents of the righteous of the Lord. Some translate victory as salvation. The focus is on the family, on rejoicing and salvation in the home.
The aim of the Emmaus Prayer Plan
is also for partners to pray it together in the home. Especially I think of couples whose children may have grown up and left home. Although many couples have an individual prayer plan, the Emmaus Prayer Plan
can help couples to pray together. As couples read, pray that the Lord will commune with them and make Himself known to them. He did say that His sheep hear His voice. (John 10.3)
How to pray it? The simplest thing to do is to share the readings together in the evening or whenever is suitable. Read aloud the passages and then pray about what the passages prompt you to pray.
55.17 says: ‘Evening and morning and at noon I will pray and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice.’ This suggests to me that a reading be done at each of those times. In this way the day would be punctuated with a pause to read a scripture and pray as one feels lead.
