Are you standing in faith for your spouse’s salvation? Do you want to see him or her saved, set free and living an overcoming, Spirit-filled life? If so, don’t give up. Your prayers make a difference.
Pray these scriptures over your spouse and yourself. Continue to build yourself up with the WORD by reading it, thinking about it and listening to faith-filled teaching. God wants your spouse to accept Jesus as his (or her) Savior. So don’t give up standing for your spouse’s salvation, no matter how long it takes or how far from God they are!
