Steve and Sandy Burton

Sandy and I are "Married for Life" leaders.

On a recent trip from Nelson to Christchurch we ended up in "strife" regarding our prayer and devotional life as a couple. Our prayer and devotional life was mostly instigated by Sandy. After a couple hours of not talking to each other within the close confines of the car we realised that the only way to resolve the issue was to practice what we teach. Wake up guys!

We started with forgiveness then prayed together, which wasn't easy at the time. We asked God to show us His will for our prayer/devotions life. His answer was that we were to be accountable to each other and share the responsibility of leading devotions. We now use a couple's daily devotional book each morning and cover each other and the family in prayer and at night study a passage of scripture and discuss its relevance to our lives. As a result it has deepened our lives with God and each other.

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to (his) purpose." Romans 8:28
