Monday’s Mission #86

Your mission this week is a repeat of a previous one, but it’s important so I want to invite you to pray about your sex life with your husband. Prayer can bring a world of change to seemingly impossible situations. Orgasm problems? Low sex drive your part or that of your husband? Lack of effective communication? Minimal intimacy? Sexual addiction? Whatever areas you see a need for improvement, invite God into those things and ask Him to bring His kingdom.


  1. My husband has always been able to pray in bed, to pray lying naked with me. He often (silently) thanks God for me when we’re having sex too. I often felt odd about praying naked, and never thought about praying *while* having sex. I felt that I should at least sit up to pray, out of respect for God or something. That is bizarre, because I’m happy to pray anywhere, anyhow, in just about any other situation. So it was only with sex, that I had that prayer hang up. I’ve begun praying about sex, and also praying during sex, asking God to bless our being together. I’m finding it very precious. And I seem to be over the whole ‘can’t pray lying naked’ thing. Which is great. I don’t want God to be excluded from the sexual part of our marriage, which I guess on some subconsious level I was doing.

  2. I’ve been praying SOOOO much about our marriage and our sex life recently. I’ve been so discouraged lately, it’s the best thing to do! I have already seen a few rewards/blessings as a result but still not the desire of my heart. From Psalm 37:

    4 Delight yourself in the LORD
    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

    5 Commit your way to the LORD;
    trust in him and he will do this:

    6 He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
    the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

    This is my prayer!

  3. I hear you jgirl. I’m really glad you’ve seen a few rewards/blessings. Me too. But I also have a long way to go, in myself, and with my husband. It seems some women have very quick and thorough sexual awakenings / resolving of issues – and praise God for that. But I expect I’m just on a longer road with my husband. I think how long it took me to start responding to my married name naturally, and to use my married name naturally. 25 years of responding to one name is a long time; I didn’t just automatically identify with my married name overnight. So, it doesn’t surprise me that it is taking me a while to re-program more deeply engrained attitudes/beliefs about sex and expand the boundaries of things I am comfy / not comfy with. Hang on in there jgirl. God is faithful and knows what path each of us needs to walk.

  4. I’m with you girls on this one. While I’ve definitely experienced my awakening, I find that I cannot grow “lazy” about prayer, OR about my actions either. If I don’t make an effort to pray for our marriage and sex life and don’t “think sex” every day, I find myself slipping a little, getting cranky, irritable. It’s a conscious decision for some of us to actively keep our desire “awake.”
    Keep it up ladies, I know from my own experiences that fervent prayer in marriage changes EVERYTHING!!
    God bless you in your continued awakenings!

  5. I know this is a week behind, but since I just read it this is my mission for the week. My husband is experiencing another round of physical symptoms that are getting in the way of physical intimacy (not ED this time, but that’s been our struggle other times), and I know that it does nothing to glorify God when we’re kept apart. I get lazy about praying for him because I’m so used to him having various aches, pains, and problems…but I need to commit myself to prayer to keep those aches and pains at bay in the first place. If I change my attitude, it will probably make a world of difference!
