Lyvita: Well my Brothers-in-Christ, this episode is for you. It’s all about praying for your wives or soon-to-be wife or future wife. And ladies, please listen in because these men are letting you in on one of the most powerful ways, they show you how much they love you.

So gather your Bible, journal, pen, and locate a comfy place to take notes because I have 3 of my friends on this episode that are eager to share how best a man can intercede for his wife.

This is episode 32. Now, on to the intro….

Welcome to Hanging Out With Jesus Podcast where we equip and encourage you to spend more time with the Triune God through practicing the spiritual disciplines to help you let go of the noises, the clutter that hinders you from knowing who you are and whose you are in Christ Jesus.

Saints, I know you heard the voices

I love this scripture Ephesians 5:25, “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,” I have joining me today to talk about praying, specifically, interceding for one’s wife, why it’s important, how to do it, and what does it mean to be a team.  So I asked 3 Followers of Christ to Join us and their marriages range from over 30 years to 7 months.
