Wife, Understand your Husband Vision and Vise Versa

A husband said, my vision is not my wife vision, and it will be difficult for my wife to support the vision she don't understand.

Now, what is a vision?

1. Vision is the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom.
2. The faculty or state of being able to see.

What is vision statement in marriage?

A vision statement of your marriage may be to have a peaceful marriage, a peaceful family, a peaceful home or to be free from financial mess.

But all these can not just happen out of the blue like winning the lottery. Husband and wife most work had, and stay committed to make it a reality.

For husband and wife to be successful, they most both agreed on a particular goal for their family. poverty is a generational curse that handed down unto the third and fourth generation.

If you don't understand how to break the curses, the lack of knowledge can keep you poor for the rest of your life, and until we understand this, much impact may not be made in life.

Someone must sacrifice him/herself to end poverty in the family, and how can the poverty be totally eradicated? It is through the idea vision and goal setting by both of them.

If this will work, it most be supported by each other, and also ready to face and overcome any challenge they may have as aresult of the goal they were pursuing rather than blaming one and other or else, husband and wife continue wallowing in abject poverty.

The two must agreed.

The Bible say in Amos 3: 3 "Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction"?

Mathew 18: 19 "Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven".

So husband and wife must work in agreements to achieve their goal. Failure to do so can upset the delicate balance of trust and respect that successful marriages deserve.

Steps to take to make our marriage vision statement a reality.

1. Discuss it with your spouse, share each others vision of your marriage, and come to an agreement. See what your dreams have in common.You might be using different words for the same thing, because men and women communicate differently.
2. Write your marriage vision statement based on your agreement above and memorize it.
3. Figure out what you and your spouse need to do daily in every aspect of your lives in order to make this vision a reality.
4. Put into action the daily activities you both have to do to make your marriage vision a reality.
5. Assess your progress during your regular marriage checkups and see if you have made progress.

If no progress has been made, find out what went wrong, and revisit steps 3 and 4 above.

Do you have a vision statement for your marriage? Please, share for others to learn from.

I pray the purpose of your marriage will not be defited in life in Jesus name.

Wishes and Prayers

Prayer might involve the utilization of words or song. If language is utilized, prayer might take the form of a hymn, incantation, formal creed, or a spontaneous vocalization in the praying individual. There are assorted forms of prayer like
petitioner prayer, prayers of supplication, thanksgiving, affirmative and worship/praise.

Prayer might be directed toward a deity, spirit, deceased individual, or lofty idea, for the purpose of worshipping, requesting counsel, calling for assistance, confessing sins or to express one's thoughts and emotions. Thus, individuals pray for a lot of reasons like personal benefit or for the sake of others. Yoga is likewise a common form of prayer as well as affirmative prayer. Most major religions use prayer in one way or another.

A few ritualize the act of prayer, calling for a strict sequence of behaviors or placing a restriction on who's permitted to pray, while others teach that prayer might be
exercised spontaneously by anybody at any time. Scientific studies regarding the utilization of prayer have mostly centered on its effect on the healing of sick or injured individuals. Meta-studies of the studies in this field have been executed demonstrating evidence a potential effect.

Assorted spiritual traditions provide a wide assortment of devotional acts. There are break of day and evening prayers, graces stated over meals, and worshipful physical gestures. A few Christians bow their heads and fold their hands. A few Native
Americans see dancing as a sort of prayer. Hindus chant mantras.

Judaic prayer will involve swaying to and fro and bowing. Muslims practice salah (kneeling and prostration) in their prayers. Quakers remain silent. A few pray according to standardized rituals and liturgies, while other people prefer extemporary prayers. Still other people blend the two.

These techniques show a variety of understandings to prayer, which are led by fundamental beliefs. These beliefs might be that

The finite may communicate with the infinite

The infinite is concerned with communicating with the finite

Prayer is meant to inculcate particular attitudes in the one
who prays, instead of to influence the recipient

recipient through philosophy and intellectual contemplation

Prayer is meant to enable a individual to gain a direct
experience of the recipient

Prayer is meant to affect the very fabric of reality as we
comprehend it

Prayer is a accelerator for change in oneself and/or one's
conditions, or likewise those of third party beneficiaries

The recipient wants and appreciates prayer

Or any combining of these.

What Is Affirmative Prayer

When most people think of prayer, they think of asking The Higher Power for something. Some people use it differently. Some people use “affirmative prayer.” Instead of imploring or beseeching The Higher Power, this method involves connecting with the spirit of The Higher Power inside and asserting positive beliefs about the wanted outcome.

Affirmative prayer is the same technique of prayer Jesus taught when he stated, “So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24).

If, for instance, one were to pray traditionally, one could say: “Please, assist me in finding a job.” By contrast, an affirmative prayer could be: “I'm now guided to my correct and perfect job.” Affirmative prayer uses the certainty that we're each being led to our greatest good; despite the way anything looks temporarily.

Metaphysicians believe that thoughts convey magnetic energy and this power draws in other power of the same frequency. Whether you're conscious of it or not, your thoughts are beaming energy that is drawing in more of the same. If you stay
centered on your intentions, you'll draw those matters into your life.Some say that
affirmative prayer “sets into motion the forces that enable us to get what we pray for

Some believe that payer is ineffective when it's attached to or followed by negative thinking. We have to place power and intensity into our thought, shift our thought, and trust in the guidance we are getting. If we expend energy on negative beliefs and feelings, we'll get negative results, even if we and other people pray daily for us. For instance, if you pray for a job and then gripe to other people that you have no job
or can't find one, you're counteracting your prayer.

Some believe that all things work together for our greatest good. We pray to align ourselves with The Higher Power and to allow ourselves to be inwardly guided to that good. With affirmative prayer, we help co-create the good that's possible in our life story.

By utilizing an affirmative prayer approach, we may visualize and plan for the future with faith that the power of The Higher Power is continually blessing our lives with inexhaustible possibilities. Affirmative prayer leads to an awakening of our spiritual selves. In faith, we pray giving thanks beforehand that the Universe is meeting our every need.

Men and women divide on religion

Fewer men than women show up in U.S. churches, and women are markedly more likely to pray and to hold up religion as important. But in Muslim nations, it’s the women who are missing in action at the mosque and yet they’re on par with men in upholding almost all the Muslim pillars of faith.

Those are among the top findings in a new Pew Research study of the gender gap in religion, drawn from data in 192 nations, released Tuesday (March 22). The overall conclusion: Women, particularly Christian, are generally more religious than men worldwide. An estimated 83 percent of women around the world identify with a faith group, compared with 80 percent of men, according to the report.

That’s not a conclusion people could reach by observation, say demographer Conrad Hackett and senior writer and editor Caryle Murphy, co-authors of the report.
“If you were a Christian woman in Kansas and you and your husband both go to church, you might think men and women are equally religious,” said Murphy.

That’s not so, she said. “We pray more than our male peers, we attend church more and we are more likely to say our religion is important to us,” she said. This same hypothetical American might also want to know about a Muslim neighbor down the street “who belongs to a faith where men and women are very much alike in their commitment,” said Murphy.

The only exception for Muslims, who make up 23 percent of the world population, is that men attend mosque more than women, said Hackett. Among the findings:
* In 61 of 192 countries studied, women are more likely than men to claim a religious identity.

 “There’s not always a huge difference but when there is a difference, it always favors women,” said Hackett. * The nones  people with no self-identified religious affiliation — are more likely to be men: 55 percent to 45 percent for women. * Religiosity lessens among Christian women as they move up the economic ladder.


Mississippi gov. signs law allowing service denial to gays

ACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi's governor has signed a law that lets religious groups and private businesses refuse service to gay couples based on religious beliefs.

Gov. Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1523, despite opposition from gay-rights groups and some businesses who say it allows discrimination. Some conservative and religious groups supported the bill. Opponents of the law, however, see it as a sword against LGBT people, not a shield for Christian conservatives.

The measure's stated goal is to protect those who believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman, that sexual relations should only take place inside such marriages, and that male and female genders are unchangeable.

The measure allows churches, religious charities and privately held businesses to decline services to people whose lifestyles violate their religious beliefs. Individual government employees may also opt out, although the measure says governments must still provide services.

Governor vetoes bill permitting use of Bible in schooling

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Gov. C. L. "Butch" Otter has vetoed legislation that would have expressly permitted the use of the Bible in public school instruction, calling the measure unconstitutional.

In the veto's accompanying letter Otter said he respects the Bible, but the measure would result in costly litigation for Idaho's public schools. He said the measure directly contradicts Idaho's Constitution.

The bill stated the Bible could be used for reference purposes in subjects like literature, history, music and world geography in public schools, but not scientific subjects. Schools are already allowed to reference the Bible and other religious texts, but this legislation specifically mentioned the Bible.

The Legislature passed the measure in the final week of this year's session after ignoring a warning from the attorney general's office that questioned its legality.

No decision on death penalty in Charleston church shootings

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Prosecutors handling the federal case against the man charged in the shooting deaths of nine black parishioners at a Charleston, South Carolina, church say the decision on whether to pursue the death penalty is in its final stages.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Richardson said Tuesday that the decision is now pending before U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who will make the determination.

Richardson and attorneys for Dylann Roof were in court to discuss updates to the case. Roof was not present, and no date for his federal trial has been set.

Roof faces nine counts of murder in state court for the killings at Emanuel AME Church. He is charged with hate crimes and other counts in federal court. The state is seeking the death penalty in Roof's state trial, which is set for July.


Majority of people in Scotland have no Religion

CANTERBURY, England — More than half of the 5.4 million people living in Scotland have no religion, according to a survey published by Scottish Social Attitudes.
The 52% of unaffiliated Scots represents a 12% jump from 16 years ago, when 40% of survey respondents said they had no religious affiliation.

The proportion of people who say they belong to the Church of Scotland — the Presbyterian Church that for so long dominated almost every aspect of life in that country — has fallen dramatically, to just 20%, down from 39% of the population in 1999.

"The survey’s findings show that Scottish commitment to religion, both in terms of our willingness to say we belong to a religion and to attend religious services, is in decline," said Ian Montagu, a researcher at ScotCen Social research in Edinburgh, which runs the annual surveys.

Montagu added that the change doesn't appear to be affecting all religions equally.
"Affiliation with the Church of Scotland is in decline while levels of identification with other religions remains relatively unchanged," he said

After the Church of Scotland, the largest Christian group is the Roman Catholic Church. Its numbers have recently been boosted by an influx of people from the European Union, particularly Poland. Read more at
