One thing that can limit your prayers-
One sure thing that can HINDER your prayers is treating your wives with Disrespect. Once there is an interference with your prayer life (your lifeline to communicating with God), then, there will be no ‘peace of mind’, calm and absolute joy that can only be gotten from God.
1st Peter 3:7
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. (NIV)…
He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the
It’s simple- you beat her and God retains His favour. You call her weak and your life reflects weakness (little wonder you find succour in pride…drugs….alcohol and punches).
When the Bible says ‘weaker vessels’, it implies that men are also ‘weak’- just not as ‘weak’ as women…(contextual)
Therefore, the process of submission for a woman- YOUR WIFE is a duty and not a function of her person. If it was her person and not a role as it is; the bible would have recommended her to be submissive to every man, but it says TO YOUR OWN HUSBAND (1st Peter 3:1a).. It’s that simple- she isn’t ‘lesser’ than you- SHE UPGRADES YOU!!!
Wives, submit yourselves unto your OWN husbands, as it is fit in the Lord… (KJV)
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their OWN husbands in every thing… (KJV)
