Segment 1 – Intro & News


Segment 2 & 3 – Couple Prayer
Ken and Signe join us from Dallas where they are giving a workshop on couple prayer.  They also want you to know about the DVD series they offer, which you can find here.

Ken Castel has been married to his wife Signe for over 45 years and have three adult children and 7 living grandchildren. Active in numerous ministries throughout their marriage, they first began praying together in 2007 when, as Signe puts it, “there was a disconnect” in their relationship. Almost immediately they both noticed a softer, gentler tone in their relationship.  Meaningful, intimate communication became much more common between them as they experienced God breathing new life into their marriage.  From that moment on they were hooked and sought after opportunities to share the great news of the blessings of a Christ Centered marriage that praying together leads to.

Between January 2020 and December 2023, FRC identified 168 such incidents across 16 countries.”  Arielle Del Turco is the author of the report.
