Putting God First in Marriage

With marriage in America looking more and more on the bleak side, a new guide was released for Christian couples to keep God in their relationship. It includes prayers for inner healing, deliverance, and breaking generational curses.

Diane M. Czekala wrote Keys to a Godly Marriage: For Married & Engaged Couples because so many young newlyweds would come to her with questions about marriage. Being happily and successfully married for more than 30 years herself, Czekala had a lot of advice to offer.

"I was thinking why are they asking me these questions, and then I thought, well why not," she said.

Co-founder of the Restore the Glory Ministry, Czekala told The Christian Post, "I wanted to give them good godly answers, answer led by God. So I started praying to the Lord about what He wanted me to tell them. And I would start to hear things from Him, so I would just start to write them down."

With the divorce rate in the U.S. alone being so high and marriage becoming less popular, Czekala thought a book on godly marriage was necessary.

"Divorce is just too common, it's like an epidemic, so a lot of the things that I say in the book are directed toward married couples," she said.

The Americans for Divorce Reform estimates that "probably, 40 or possibly even 50 percent of marriages will end in divorce if current trends continue. However, that is only a projection and a prediction."

Czekala contends that a lot of times divorces happen simply because couples rush into the marriage. In her book she discusses ways of exploring compatibility for engaged couples. Not only is the information in her book based on her knowledge as a wife of more than 30 years, but she couples her instructions with Scripture.

Keys to a Godly Marriage, Czekala says, helps married couples reignite the flame. It even helped her own marriage.

"One of the things that the Lord was showing me that we weren't doing was that we needed to go on dates, regularly. We needed to do special things for each other. It sparked the marriage and it sparked the relationship. It was just amazing," she said.
