God, Change My Spouse
About the Guest
If you're married, you've probably prayed that prayer at least once. But how do we know if that's appropriate or just shifting blame? Well, if your spouse is involved in sinful behavior pray for them to repent. And if they are abusive don't tolerate it, get to safety, and pray they are convicted to change. But if it's just a matter of preference, well, pray for your heart to change more times than you pray for them to change.
