To the rest I say – I, not the Lord – if a brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is happy to live with him, he should not divorce her.
And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is happy to live with her, she should not divorce him.
For the unbelieving husband is sanctified because of the wife, and the unbelieving wife because of her husband. Otherwise, your children are unclean, but now they are holy.
Drake was going through very tough times in his life. His challenges seemed insurmountable and some of them were because of the terrible mistakes he had made in the past.
One day he was waiting on the Lord in prayer and fasting, he saw in a dream that he was trying to carry a big generator to power his house because a storm had cut their power line, but he could not carry the generator alone until wife joined him and it became easy for him to carry. From that day, he started praying with his wife as a matter of necessity, and they now spent a lot of time praying in the Spirit together.
The first thing he noticed was that as a result of their prayers together, they had fewer misunderstandings. With time, the mountains that seemed insurmountable became stepping stones.

God cares so much about our relationships because they are the theatre which affords us the opportunity to practically grow in our divine nature [of love]. That is the reason why prayers of agreement between saints invoke the highest spiritual authority and power of heaven (see Matthew 18:18-19
). It should be easier for a couple to reach this agreement.
Go into today knowing that your adversary the devil will fight unity and agreement between you and your spouse because he knows the power your agreement with prayers can produce. Praying in the spirit with your spouse drives away the spirit of discord and produces unity and power.
