Battle Tactic #3: Battle for and with each other spiritually, uncovering the spiritual root and dealing with it.

Praying for each other and with each other is a critical part of fighting for your marriage. However, it is also important to fight the spiritual war. When an issue comes up and when one spouse is triggered, it is important to uncover the root cause because it is usually not what you are seeing on the surface. Simply ask Jesus, “Jesus, what’s underneath this (anger, bitterness, disgust, etc.) that I’m feeling right now? What’s the root of it?” Pay attention to what is revealed to you by what you hear, see (eg, a memory), or sense.

Based on what’s revealed, you may need to repent of something that you did, you may need to renounce a lie that you believed based on what happened, you may need to ask Jesus or someone else for forgiveness, or you may need to forgive someone else or the situation. One spouse can be guiding the other spouse through this process, or one spouse can do this on his/her own, while the other spouse prays for the Holy Spirit to reveal what’s really happening.

Battling with each other may also take the form of joining together to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal what’s going on in the situation and then taking spiritual authority over it in the name of Jesus. If you feel accused, take authority over it. “In the name of Jesus, I bind the spirit of accusation and command it away.” If you feel judged, take authority over it. “In the name of Jesus, I bind the spirit of judgment and command it away.”
