– Author Unknown Joe and his wife don’t sit next to each other during Church services. Even when going to Church services, they go in different vehicles; and when they travel in the same car, it is usually a very quiet and uncomfortable ride. Joe sat at his usual spot during the Church service; the fourth line on the far left row. His wife sat on the center row. The Pastor took to the podium. “Husbands, stop wasting your time praying” the Pastor began. The congregants were alarmed. No one expects to hear a pastor saying prayer is a waste of time. “I am not here to discourage you to pray. I am here to encourage you to pray right.” The Pastor countered. “Husbands, stop wasting your time praying if you are not treating your wife well. The Word says that when you treat your wife badly, it hinders your prayers. “Men, you claim to be prayerful. You come to church driving your expensive cars, giving your offertory and tithes, active in Church, some of you are Church leaders; but how are you treating your wife? “You may look good to us Church members, but it is your wife and children that know who you truly are.” the Pastor paused. Joe turned to face his wife. She looked at him.
