Should a wife pray with another man in private?
My fiance and I are in disagreement over whether or not she should be praying with another man without anyone else present. I have no problem with her praying with another man when there is another woman present. I know she just wants to help, and she is prayer warrior, but this goes against my beliefs. She and I agree that it is wrong for her to counsel or minister to another man, or for me to counsel another woman. She is sending the wrong signals to another man, and there is the potential for there to be an "appearance of evil" both from my view and the man's spouse's view. There needs to be safeguards in our lives, and I know a man's nature, especially lost ones. We have each sought counsel and what she has been told goes against my beliefs, and my beliefs have been backed up by the elder men of the church, and even our pastor, but she still doesn't believe me that it is dangerous and wrong. We really need an objective view on this. Please help!
