Devotionals for Couples

Do you and your spouse do devotionals for couples? Keeping a marriage fresh and connected can be challenging. With work, house responsibilities, ministry, kids, and all the rest that comes with life today, staying connected takes work. You know, all of the pressure of everyday life.

Whether you are newly married or have been married for decades, setting aside time to talk, pray and connect is one of the best ways there is to stoke the flames of a God-centered marriage.

NOTE: You can try the Amazon Kindle Unlimited Plan and get access to over 1 million books (including many of these). Read on any device including your phone, tablet, and computer, or Kindle. Prefer to listen to the books? This plan includes audible books, too! Or just try Audible and get 2 free audiobooks as a bonus!

Before I share my top ten best devotionals for couples, I want to share some do’s and don’ts about doing couple’s devotions.


Do’s and Dont’s For Couple’s Devotions


  • Set aside daily or weekly devotional time – whichever works best for you and your spouse. Just because my husband and I do them daily doesn’t mean that is right for you and your husband.
  • Make sure you are able to complete the devotions without interruption. Wait until the kids are in bed or do them in the morning before the kids get up.
  • Try a variety of couples’ devotions. We liked some more than others, but each gives us a unique perspective on a Christ-centered marriage and encourages us to talk about things that wouldn’t normally come up in everyday conversation.
  • Make devotion time a priority (no matter if you choose daily, weekly, every other day, or, say Tuesdays and Fridays). Setting aside time for just the two of you gives you a chance to pause and spend quality time with each other – connecting at the end of a busy and possibly, stressful day


  • Don’t put pressure on yourself to complete the devotional book in a given time (ie: finishing a 31-day devotion in 31 days). We took nights off if we were out at night for bowling or small group.
  • Don’t feel guilty or feel pressed to do devotions every day. What’s important is that you are actively, consciously making your marriage a priority – in the midst of a busy life.

Moments Together for Couples: 365 Daily Devotions for Drawing Near to God & One Another*

by Dennis and Barbara Rainey

This easy-to-use devotional for Christian couples helps you set aside anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes every day with your spouse to grow closer to God and closer to each other. We liked the variety of topics that the devotional covered and enjoyed the questions at the end of each devotional.

Night Light: A Devotional for Couples*

by Dr. James Dobson and his wife and Shirley Dobson

This daily devotional offers personal, practical, and biblical insights to center your marriage on God. This was the first couples devotional that we went through together as a married couple. We enjoyed the variety of devotions on love, intimacy, family, and communication and building a strong relationship. Our only critique is that many of the devotions focus on raising kids (ours are grown), but overall, we really liked this devotional for couples.

The Duck Commander Devotional for Couples*

by Alan and Lisa Robertson

An inspiring devotional that peels back the layers of a failing marriage and how Alan and Lisa, with Christ at the center, brought their marriage back to healthy and thriving and reaching spiritual growth. Whether or not you are a fan of Duck Dynasty, or if your marriage is strong or needs some work, this one ranks high on our list of best devotions for couples. We loved their realness, transparency, and daily prayers for both husbands and wives.

When Couples Walk Together: 31 Days to a Closer Connection*

by Cindi and Hugh McMenamin 

This innovative devotional is focused on meaningful ways that husbands and wives can draw closer together and build a strong marriage. Each daily devotion (spans 31 days) offers simple, helpful (and fun!) steps a husband and wife can take to nourish closeness and intimacy. We really enjoyed this one as connection and communication are so important to help a marriage thrive.

The Uncommon Marriage Adventure: A Devotional Journey to Draw You Closer to God and Each Other*

by Tony and Lauren Dungy

We really enjoyed this one. Both my husband and I are huge sports fans and related to or remembered many of the stories related to the couple’s devotions. Even if you are not a fan of sports (or you want to encourage your husband to do devotions with you), you will enjoy this devotional.

Tony and Lauren share their hurts, heartaches, struggles, and joys with the reader and provide insightful questions to discuss the devotion and related situations that married couples face. One of their focuses is on connection – such an important topic that many couples begin to lose as kids grow up.

Family Life Bible Study for Couples*

by Dennis and Barbara Rainey

Although listed as a seven-week Bible study, this one took us months to complete. Each “week” has ten devotions. There’s a devotion and questions to discuss with each other and your small group. We did this study on our own, so we discussed the small group questions as well as the couple’s questions.

We liked the firm biblical foundation of this book but found that some of the situations were a bit outdated and much of the book focused on couples with young children. Ours are all grown so much didn’t apply to us.

Overall, the questions were thought-provoking and offered us a great opportunity to talk about deep heart issues and how to encourage each other to grow in faith. It remains one of my favorite Bible studies for Mr. & Mrs.

Two as One: Connecting Daily with Christ and Your Spouse*

by Ryan and Selena Frederick

Learn how the gospel relates to every aspect of your marriage by tracing core issues to their source and seeking Jesus as the answer to every question. Includes a short devotion, daily Bible verse, two questions to discuss, and a blank area for his and her prayers. We prayed together and answer our questions aloud, so we didn’t use this section, but it was very helpful as a springboard for discussion and prayer and God’s Word.

A Little God Time for Couples: 365 Daily Devotions

by BroadStreet Publishing Group LLC

10 Best Devotions for Couples 10

This devotional offers fresh insight into relationships, encouraging Scriptures, thought-provoking questions, and inspirational prayers to help you intentionally engage with God and each other. While we have not done this couple’s devotion, I have heard good things about it and it has a 4.5-star rating on Amazon. It’s definitely on our list!

Devotions for a Sacred Marriage: A Year of Weekly Devotions for Couples

by Gary Thomas

A classic devotional for couples! What if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy? By popular demand, the author of Sacred Marriage returns to the topic of how God uses marriage to expand our souls and make us holy.

Devotions for a Sacred Marriage explores how God can reveal Himself to you through your marriage and help you grow closer to Him as well as to your spouse. Fifty-two weekly devotions encourage couples to build a marriage around God’s priorities. This one is high on our list of next devotions for couples, but we would do one each day, rather than week. The scripture verses gave us additional conversation starters.

You're practically still newlyweds! May God continue to draw you both closer to Him and each other. Enjoy the devotions. We loved them. Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful, blessed day!

My hubby is doing devotion with me but is not every day and also expect me to call him for devotion everyday and to do everything both word and prayer all the time.


Thursday 30th of May 2019

I would be grateful that he is doing devotions with you. Many husbands don't even do that. Praise God for the blessings you have and you will see more of them, my friend. And, keep praying that God will make your husband bold and participate in a deeper way. I'm praying alongside you!

I love the idea of doing a devotional with my hubby, but he's not really into books & self-improvement. So instead I pray for him. It's helping me so much!


Friday 10th of May 2019

Keep praying! God knows your hearts and perhaps, one day, he'll want to join you in doing a devotional. I'm praying for you, too!


Thursday 9th of May 2019

I loved this list as I realized this is something my husband and I need to make time to do! I’m adding a few of these to my reading list. Thanks for sharing this wonderful list of devotional!


Thursday 9th of May 2019

You are so welcome! My husband and I cherish our devotion time. I pray that this practice will be a blessing to you and your marriage. Thanks for stopping by!
