When is the last time you prayed for military marriages? These young men and women live under tremendous stress. One military wife said to me, “When my husband is deployed, and I hear a car door slam outside my house, I listen carefully to hear if a second car door slams. Because I know that if there has been a casualty there will be two people coming to my door to inform me.” Those of us who are civilians know little of that kind of stress. So, may I encourage you to pray for military marriages. Pray that God will protect them, but pray also that God will help them process the normal stresses of life that come with a military life-style.
