But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
If your frustrations are stemmed from selfish fleshly desires than God will help you get past them. If your frustration is coming from a place of not being able to fulfill your own purpose, then God will give you a better strategy. We must know that it is not God’s desire for us to be living a life of turmoil in our homes because of the different assignments that we each have. He wants us to have peace in everything we do and the only answer is prayer.
5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
The answer to our frustrations is peace. We thank God for who He is and what He is doing in our lives, we give our frustrations to Him and we ask Him to show us the path that will fulfill us as well as keep our homes in harmony.
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
Sometimes our frustrations come out of a need of deliverance. We need to be honest with ourselves and our spouse about the root of our frustration, talk it out, and pray. God wants to heal us. Our prayers will be effective because we have been made righteous by the blood of Jesus. We need to stay in prayer for the peace of our homes. The enemy is after our families and definitely doesn’t want us to have peace. Don’t let the devil fool you into believing that your family is against you and that they don’t care about your desires. Your family loves you and wants to see you prosper. Most of the time, they don’t even realize you are frustrated until it is manifested by an irrational response to a minor situation. We can’t let things build up. We need to empty ourselves in prayer to God daily in order to keep our minds and hearts at peace.
Father, we thank You for our families. We thank You that you have uniquely made each one of us and have trusted us to work together for Your glory. Forgive us for not praying for one another as often as we should. Help us confess our frustrations and sins to our spouses so we can pray and expect Your healing, peace, and reward. Make us more aware of when our flesh begins to rise so that we may quickly empty ourselves out before You. Lord, You alone can give us peace and we need peace in our homes, in our hearts, and in our minds. Help us destroy the works of the enemy before he comes to cause turmoil in our homes. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
